Halloween Costumes

OK, I'm not dressing up for Halloween, but a quick look at some costume sites and I'm impressed with some of the cartoon related costumes:

Hulk costumes are pretty standard, but an inflatable one? Nice!

I was all set to mock a female Robin, but apparently there was one. Go figure.

And finally, at $799.99, this Superman outfit is expensive, but WOW!

You Know It’s Almost Christmas When…


…I start getting comments about my 2004 review of Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol.

Not too bad so far:

Just reading these blogs for the first time while looking for the DVD version of Magoo's Christmas. It's my favorite and I'm approaching 58 years old. When young Ebenezer sings "I'm All Alone in the World" it still brings tears to my eyes. Clever lyrics, i.e., "Where are two shoes to click to my clack . . . " Can't beat it. Will always be a favorite of mine, but to each his own. God bless us, everyone!

But soon there'll be more like this:

Anderson you're a pompous fool. Every boomer alive knows this is the best animated Christmas classic ever made. Of course the repeats of "razzleberry" make us cringe, but it sticks in our brains like all genius product marketing jingles. If you don't see the joy here, you grew up too fast. So sad for you. Time to go back to school, relive your childhood like Magoo did, and btw, learn to draw.

Happy Holidays indeed!

Weird Toy Stuff

OK, I’ve pretty much bought everything for the kids for Christmas, but I’m still looking for a few little things to round it all out.

In my shopping I’ve found some weird stuff:

Star Wars Galactic Figures Stocking Stuffers

“I find your lack of Christmas spirit disturbing.”

And this isn’t in itself an odd toy…

…but the Amazon seller struck me as odd…

Can’t read it? Here’s a close-up:


Just the thing for baby; a heavily armed hellspawn. Awww…

OK, back to work.
