32 Crabapples for Bad, Bad Monkeys
The title character of the new Curious George movie sounds like a teletubbie. Even the commercial caused me to stick my fingers in my ears and loudly repeat: "I will not be taken over by gigantic infants, I will not be taken over by gigantic infants, I will not be taken over by gigantic infants..."
Actually, I only said that twice. It doesn't really roll off the tongue as smoothly as I had hoped.
Does anyone think it's weird that one of the original C-George writers was found dead in a driveway this week? [The movie premieres Friday.]
Not to start paranoia or anything, but I blame Tinky Winky.
You see, this Shalleck guy was also a writer on the 70s kid's show Winky Dink and You (about which, I'll come clean, I've always wanted to write a new media analysis... I even went so far as to buy the whole winky kit on eBay, which is now under my bed).
Winky Dink.... Tinky Winky. Can you say copyright dispute?
