Here were are on October 1st an’ somehow I’ve gotten both the Calendar and a new Bunz & Katz page, with Bunz lookin’ trashy an’ sassy in her 2nd hand glad rags, posted tonight… Wowsers! Will wonders never cease??
Sept. 2nd, Oops I screwed up! In preparing the calendars I inadvertently deleted a black layer for Bunz – and in the scramble to get everything posted, I somehow didn’t notice… But the calendars have been repaired now…
Now, if you click on the pix of Witchy Bunz, she’ll link you to the Halloween Hollywood calendar page…
Oh, the shame… here our earnest little planet-destroying Space Alien Invader, jus’ tryin’ to do her job, has been unwittingly decked out as a Trashy Teen Trollop by the machinations of a seedy used-prop salesman… chiz chiz moan drone, the shame of it all… But despite her seductive getup, I pity da fool who tries to put the make on her… Ooooh, I pity da fool…
She’d look jus’ fine, strutting along Sunset Blvd…
And getting picked up by the police for “suspicion of prostitution”. Just ask Heather Locklear! She was working on a show as a LAPD uniformed officer, and on a day off, had walked down to the corner market in her neighborhood and was “checked out” by regular cops. When they found out who she actually was, talk about embarrassment!
Oh sure it’s done ten thousand light years but can it make the Kessel run in less than twelve parsecs?
Hey, When you’ve got computer animated CGI with a dustbin full of seriously stoopid threats and pointless special effects, then practically ANY CGI Spaceship could do the “Kessel Run”… It’s a Lot Harder, 50s style, when all you have is a model on a string!!
I like the carrot. A healthy lunch treat makes a fine break in the day. Even if (um) she might seem to be walking a street at the moment.
So jus you leave her alone ’cause she’s carryin on
an old (cartoon) family tradition.
(“crunch, crunch, crunch…eeeh, what’s up Doc?)
(Didja know that the story of Mel Blanc hating carrots is an urban legend?)
I remember reading that Mel was allergic to carrots. He would lose his voice after eating them. As a result, he’d do the scenes where a carrot had to be eaten until last, and it would be edited in at the right time.
According to the “Voice Over Herald,” this is complete legend. Blanc would chomp on a carrot to get the needed sound effect, then spit it out to voice his lines without having a mouthful of carrot to get in the way. Apparently he wasn’t overly fond of carrots, “or any healthy vegetable for that matter,” but he wasn’t allergic.
I believe it was in a TV Guide interview I saw that story.
You might’a thought that Leon Schlesinger could have hired a carrot chewer, to relieve Mel Blanc of the task for recordings – But he was probably just too cheap! From what I’ve read, part of Schlesinger’s deal with Warners, is that he got free use of their recording facilities as well as the studio orchestra, plus any music that Warners published (They owned 3 music publishers) This all enabled him to make cartoons at less cost than many other studios… I recall listening to an interview by Stan Freberg, who did a lot of uncredited voices for the Schlesinger cartoons, and who said that there wasn’t actually a recording studio that they used, what they’d do was, after hours when the filming was shut down, they’d go to a “Hot Set” on a sound stage where the recording equipment was set up and record their dialog for whatever cartoon was in production, being careful not to touch anything while doing so… As such, at any given point they might be recording on a farmyard set, or medieval castle, or western saloon or where-ever… Makes one wonder if the following morning, the film crew might’ve found a few bits of spewed carrot bits laying around the set??
