George Liquor Stories 1


This manly drawing was done by the incredible Jim Smith and clumsily painted by me. Go to his site and see more killer artwork!

George’s Trophies

The neighborhood kids are admiring George’s animal trophies in his den.
It’s full of huge animal heads and furs.
When one kid pipes up that his mom says animals have rights too,
George agrees and goes on to explain what their rights are:
“They have the right to fill my stomach,
to compete for their own hides with me and my gun,
etc.”
While he is explaining this to the kids,
he is being stalked by a bear hunter who bags him
and gives him to his wife to wear as a human stole
around her neck.
Another female bear pelts her with an egg
for wearing a poor helpless human.

Domestic Abuse
George and his wife Mable get into a big spat about her smoking and stinking up the house. He tells her it’s ruining her health and she says she’s fitter than he’ll ever be and challenges him to a fight. They take their shirts off and have a knock-down drag-out fight. The cops come and say they’ve heard reports of domestic abuse. George hollers at them to take Mabel away because she just beat the living crap out of him.

Mabel Drops Dead

George Liquor’s wife smokes too much and it drives him crazy. He loves everything about her except the smoking. He warns her all the time that it’ll kill her and sure enough, this one last cigarette does the trick.
Then George has to explain death to the kids.
This story is rife with "heart' for all you Disney 'mos who love plot and artificial pathos!

George’s Crusade

A holiday weekend is coming up and George and the kids are discussing where they should go for a nice vacation.
The kids want Disneyland but George decides it would be much more fun to have their own little crusade.
He tells them about evil terrorists and how Bin Laden is still at large. “If the government can’t catch him, we’ll do it!”
He explains what an evil culture it is while he’s at it. “Their women are so ugly they have to wrap them in big bags, with a hole where only their mustaches can peek through!”
Slab “N’ Ernie can’t wait for the delightful weekend of fun.
They realize they have to soften Bin Laden up before they capture him, so they do that by exposing him to superior Western culture-they feed him McDonald’s burgers, hypnotize him with rap music, gouge his eyes with "adult" cartoons drawn by 3 year olds and make him listen to 3 Looney Tunes commentaries by Mike Barrier in a row. When he's all soft and stupid, they beat the crap out of him and end all wars forever.


Sody and Jimmy Stories

Sex Before Marriage
George Liquor comes home and catches Sody and Jimmy making out on the couch.
He freaks out, puts Jimmy the retarded boy in his room and proceeds to lecture Sody about morals.
“In our day, we waited till after we married before we had any hanky panky…in fact, 5 years after for Mabel and me…and we always apologized afterwards!”

Doin’ It With A ‘Tard
Sody Pop, the neighborhood's hottest teenager is having a get together with her girlfriends. They are playing truth or dare.
They dare Sody to do it with that ‘tard’ that lives down the street-George Liquor’s idiot nephew, Jimmy. “Ewwww!”
She does it though and then reports back that it was the best ever!
The girls come up with a theory that a ‘tard’ is man in his natural state. He’s like a caveman and that’s why he’s so good in bed.

They then decide that if only all men were tards, then women could rule the earth and there would be peace, love and cellulite for all.

That's a killer drawing there, Makinita!

You are prolific too!

scot said...

Kudos on script outlines. Honestly, I'm a little surprised that some of the plot outlines contained some topical material (I had figured the scripts were outlined during or shortly after the original "Ren and Stimpy" era).

makinita said...

thanks alot JOHN i did it out of love of your Charaters they are the greatest !!!
cheers

Matt Greenwood said...

Hey, they sound great!
I really hope someone funds these, preferably on DVD, though here in Asutralia, we're only just getting the Ren and Stimpy DVDs, so I doubt Geroge Liquor would get released here.

Also, I was just wondering if you've considering making cartoons avaliable for the iPod, sort of a podcast type thing where people pay a couple of dollars an episode. Wouldn't have to be made exclusively, but that and DVDs would be a great way to make a return.

Of course, you'd still need the initial money to make them.

Mitch K said...

"…in fact, 5 years after for Mabel and me…and we always apologized afterwards!" <==Hahahaha! I wonder how many other people can relate to that...

Your ones about George and Mable fighting are just hilarious. The bare-skinned fight sounds awesome! George sure is all about the healthy living.

A story:

Last year, in an Oakville Wal-Mart, I found the Canadian George Liquor. He was this short gray-haired fellow with high corners. He had this blue sweater on with his sleeves rolled up to his elbows. The man had a voice of a drowned chainsaw. He had so much grit in it. He was dragging some poor Wal-Mart-employed guy around the DVDs; talking to him non-stop about terrible movies (the kid just kept pretending to care -- not that ol' 'George' would let him leave anyway). I can still hear this short man yell to his taller, plumper wife: "Hey Muriel! Come here! Was the hell was the name of that movie we watched last night!?" His wife seemed spacey. She either had an accent, or a speech impediment -- I'm not sure. Happy couple of folks, though.

Baron Von Josho said...

Holy Crap! Those sound amazing...especially Domestic Abuse and Mabel Drops Dead...

What does Mabel look like? If we reach the 400 reply mark, can we see a picture of her?!!? I like the fact George mounts his wife's butt on his wall...

In the "George and Jimmy Hunting" drawing I can almost hear Jimmy doing the rhythmic sniff from Corny Concerto.

Great stuff!
I remember reading about George's origin in Wild Cartoon Kingdom.

I have a feeling Mabel resembles the lady in "Fire Dogs". GET THIS STUFF ON THE TV!!! DVD!!! SOMEWHERE! ANYWHERE!

Brian Romero said...

I think most women will agree that 'tard' is the natural state of men!

I like the 'George's Crusade' idea... but be careful though, you may upset some of those 'peace loving' Muslims who set buildings on fire when some one draws cartoons of their prophet! Jihad baby!

Nicolas Martinez said...

I love the "Doin' it with a 'tard" storyline, so far. I bet the whole thing will be a classic.

Charles Brubaker said...

Wow. You think up stories quick. I like the drawings you included.

Just curious. Have you ever tried to make a political cartoon? Mostly as an excuse to caricature our crappy politicians? ;)

Anonymous said...

The world desperately needs a George Liquor TV cartoon/DVD/webtoon/ANYTHING! I would personally love to see a George Liquor cartoon on Adult Swim, especially to counter-balance the intentionally shitty-looking cartoons that clog the airtime on that channel. One season, 13 episodes, I don't think it's impossible. Whenever they play Boo Boo Runs Wild on Cartoon Network (usually at around 3 in the morning) it's like early Christmas. So, if there are any TV executive big shots reading John's blog, they can chalk me up as another viewer who badly wants to see another Spumco 'toon on TV!

John Park said...

“In our day, we waited till after we married before we had any hanky panky…in fact, 5 years after for Mabel and me…and we always apologized afterwards!"

I can't begin to describe the degree that these words ring true! Particularly the apologizing part.

Hilarious, please make this so!!!

scodav said...

Everyone knows there's nothin' funnier than 'tards! Put George Liquor on, uh, on something!

Angus Glashier said...

Bloody marvellous!

Anonymous said...

Shit, 400? You're pushing it, but it can be done. Anyway, I really love the stories. Some of your best stuff is built on artificial pathos (Son of Stimpy comes to mind, even Ren seeks help might fit here). John, I really hope we'll get to see those cartoons. I'm about to sleep now, I'll probably dream about George Liquor wrestling with Mabel.

geenpool said...

iwanna see these!!! I do's, I do's. Please somebody give this man all the money he needs so he can make them. And while you're at it, feel free to give me lots and lots of money as well...it won't nearly be as well spent as John K can do with it, but at least I'll have a pretty new plasma to watch his DVD's on.

400 blows, eh?

Piece of cake.

The fight--Mable was going thru the change when she took on George. Too bad it killed her, not the smokes. The nictoine was holding off the onrush of killer hormones.

"Peace, love and cellulite for all."

indeed!

Back in the '90s I had a dream where I was pushed around and bullied by George Liquor. It was pretty coooooo-el!

How come The Goddamn George Liquor Show at the old Spumco site didn't work out?

BTW, every cartoonist has a blog to show off their cartoons but how many Level 11 Electroninc Technicians for the Postal Service do ?

Is that Bambi mounted on George's wall? I want to see that episode!

Great work as always!

whoops! an innocent mistake!

Jim Smith did the incredible drawing all right and I "painted" it.

I gave the art to someone to change the title from "Comic Book" to "The George Liquor Program" and he must have wiped out all text from it without knowing.

Keep up the fantastic work, John. Thanks so much for putting all of this great material up and so often. Why the hell didn't the Internet exist 15 years ago when I was dying for something like this?!?! Good things come to those who wait though.

Again, anyone that can help, these cartoons need to be made and made now. It's clear that John has more than enough fans to make plenty of money for you on such a deal!

Robin B said...

youre a hard task master mr.k, youll need old man lady lucks help with this one...but heres my vote... thanks for the cool blog.. just to dream of the bin laden episode is enough for me...
maybe...unfortunately...a little to risque... for the network money men. green light on the retard sex though.

Wow! These stories sound awesome! Especially "doin it with a 'tard" .Hope to see these on DVD soon!

mitchL said...

No one can capture the essence of the Great American Working Class Man quite like you, John. That wife of his would be an interesting and refreshing character to see for once!

These stories are what's missing from shows these days. You upped the ante with Ren and Stimpy and made me roll on the floor laughing as a kid, and now that I've been desensitized, there's nothing on that has this kind of comedy that will make me laugh anymore.

My joy has been restricted by the absence of quality television!

Someone give this man a budget! A Big 'Un! Bring back the laughter!

These stories are totally awesome, but in the end its the good ol' Spumco animation that is going to make them incredible! We need to see these made, the animation world needs this!

Enough with the flat characters with thick black outlines I see on every new animated show that comes out. I mean, I like some of those shows (Dexter's Lab), but we need some variety and some looser, wilder animation in these shows! Come on, television, mix it up a little! It would make them so much more fun to watch.

Bring on George Liquor!

william wray said...

I hate to be serious, but as funny as I know you would makes make them, have you ever considered trying to a little more traditional kind of premise? One that feels a little more structured. I. E. clear character motivations and a beginning middle and and end that relate? Most seem to just be a series of great gags strung together that wanders off at the end. I know you feel the writing is really done when the board stage, and old cartoons were really simple, but isn't it being unrealistic to expect and executive to understated that? Let me summarize one of the best one's: George's Trophies.

George liquor explains to children how an animals only right is to die while being stalked by a bear who wants him as a trophy.

I think that works, and I like the set up gag at the end that relates to the beginning, but would think it needs to have more motivation. I imagine you would say George's motivation is getting to kill something and that's enough. That's a funny satire of right-wing gun nuts, but is it really relatable human character traits? I feel like a lot of these stories are mainly about anger, irony and using hypocrisy of the self righteous as the lever that drives the humor. That works, to a point, but I feel like this stuff needs more human relationships and how they relate to each other. George liquor seems to be a satire on how people don't relate to anything but themselves. OK, I get that, but is that enough to convince development exertive that you have fleshed out, relatable characters? Ren and Stimpy worked because of the great relationship ship between characters, they needed each other and they balanced each other out.

Lets review the characters


George Liquor: An angry self- centered right wing gun nut who's chief function to to explain in a ironic way/ how killing is justified. Has little intelligence other than jungle cunning and repeating Rush Limbaugh declarations. Although he might consider Rush Gay for being to soft on that fag John Wayne. Elmer Fudd meets Archie Bunker with more anger.

Jimmy the Retarded Boy. The hapless Idiot, good for not much more than funny drawings and being molested. If he was more of a "wise" stupid character like Art Carney of the Honeymooners or Stimpy he might have more to contribute. Remember Stimpy was an idiot and a sort of a genius in his determined way.

Soody Pop: The cliché cute girl, might act as the voice of reason sometimes.
If she was more interesting she might have something to contribute besides a empty silhouette of sexuality. Alice on the Honeymooners or Elaine on Seinfeld had more strength. Thus they bring conflict to the character table.

Georges wife is new to me, but I'm betting she's the female version of George. I must say I don't like George not liking cigarettes. Seems like a American pastime he would defend to his last inch of his charred lung. I was taught never go against character for a joke to service a story point.

This doesn't sound like a cast that would really work together. Compare the cast to All In the Family, a show that didn't work once it was only about Archie. Just the same way the Honeymooners wouldn't work if it was only about Ralph. I don't find any of the Liquor cast lovable. At least one of them has to be. Even if the one characters only job is to love George like Edith loved Archie. When a likeable character finds the good in an unlikable character the audience can to. Both Ren and Stimpy were Lovable. Even when Ren was hateful Stimpy made it OK to forgive him. All these characters seem unlikable or feel undeveloped, like they don't deserve personalities.

Anyway I hope these old fashioned theories can be considered constructive criticism or food for thought, not a reason for folks to get mad at me. Your bible may have ironed out some of there problems or I just don't know the characters well enough, I'm often wrong, but you have been flogging this show idea for a very long time, I think it deserves a review and revamp. It's hard on the ego, but the re- writing Jim and I do on our stories we are always better for it.

William seems like you have enough good ideas there to make your own show. If that's how you want cartoons you should make some like that. Some people find the stuff spumco does incredibly painfully funny. Maybe you should see them with an audience sometime.

mitchL said...

I apologize in advance, but this might be a meandering, sprawling comment, but I believe that by the end it will have made some sense.

I agree with Bill in that maybe some of these characters don't seem to be relatable enough to stand the test of time like Ren & Stimpy. On their own I think they are lovable, fun and interesting... but it will take a special kind of relationship to really bond them and make them seem more real.

Of course, these relationships exist and can be hilarious. They seem to have little in common, but unlikely people are tossed together in a weird variety of ways all the time.

I used to install sprinkler systems, and the men I worked with each day were two total George Liquors. They were manly men and didn't seem to make much sense of my hapless, idiot ways, but they relentlessly tried to mold me into their steak loving, chew spitting form.

I don't think the George Liquors I know would ever express any inkling of their inner emotions over what they're thinking about when manhandling a buck with his bare hands. I think the hiding of motivations and being stone faced is part of their nature. And then a scene like Mabel's death comes along and the emotion that was missing during all the comedy comes out, and I think it's a good balance.

Maybe there's some kind of happy medium between the simple goodness of it's current form and Bill's critique, but I am pleased with these little snippets as they are.

Which I guess is something to note... These are just snippets of the stories. We've only sampled the rump roast from these beasts, and I'm confident in John's storytelling ability.

P.S.

Bill, if you're reading this, I finally ordered a King Crab figure. Are they still a limited edition?

Duck Dodgers said...

John,

These stories are more than terrific!

they are brilliant and funny!

I would like to see more drawings with the beautiful spumco girls and with George at his best.

John, the idea in George’s Crusade of having poor Bin Laden listening Barrier's commentaries is terrific! The poor fella would prefer the electric chair.

I told it many times to my friend Jerry Beck : I want your commentaries for every Clampett cartoon in the future LTGC, i want Daniel Goldmark comentaries for the musical masterpieces ( such as " Rhapsody in Rivets" )and, of course, hundreds of commentaries made by Jerry . I wonder if Steve Stanchfield could do commentaries too.

Frankie said...

I think the world is in dire need of some hot,fresh George Liquor cartoons. It would truely be un-American for this show not to be on the air, America is supposed to be about quality! and Damnit thats what George brings to the table.

I am also going to be a jerk and post my own blogger cause I just got one, and I posted 2 drawings on it.

Fantastic stuff again! I've got a 'tard in my family and can confirm he acts like a troglodyte. Whether he's good in bed is something I'll never wish on my enemies but the thought burned my mind's eye. Oh yeah, his name is Slade.

C. A. M. Thompson said...

Jimmy's a funny character because he can't talk, he can only make gurgling tard noises. Seems to me like he could be a good silent physical comedy.

Okay I only really know George from the two Ren & Stimpy episodes he starred in but in my opinion George Liquor is an authoritarian who feels like he has a sense of responsibility. So George doesn't smoke and I don't think he drinks either. He has to be a good role model for Jimmy, who needs to be an upstanding retard.

I guess Mrs. Liquor and God would be the only ones with authority over George, otherwise he always gets his way through sheer willpower.

Lord Turbine said...

More Jimmy drawings... awesome.

This blog is awesome, I'm just glad I read about it. Very inspiring to those animators (like myself) who think 2-D animation is dying. Luckilly there are animators like you to save the art of hand-drawings.

I mean, sure, there's a lot of 2-D animation out there, but none of it is really done by hand anymore - it's all done on a cel or on a computer. Personally, I do everything by hand, the only thing a computer is used for is putting the animation together, but that's a very basic process of scanning the drawings in one-by-one, putting the files into Photoshop Elements, compiling them into several multi-layer animated gifs, then putting all the gifs together with sound using a movie making program, usually Windows Movie Maker, but I use iMovie whenever I can... Apple supporter.

You own, man, keep up the good work.

"It sucks that the advertisers restricted the airing of the remaining Ren and Stimpy Adult Party episodes... it also sucks Viacom still owns every episode ever made of both series."

Duck Dodgers said...

Any supposed planned story for a direct-to-dvd George Liquor movie?

A Futurama movies is going to be released on dvd; same thing for Superman the Animated Series; same again for the Batman animated features.
So, why not Ren and Stimpy, George Liquor,Jimmy,sody,the Catholic Schoolgirls on direct-to-dvd shorts, featurettes and features???

WE want them!!!!!!!!

Mortimizer said...

I agree with Bill on George being against smoking or anything to do with bad health, as I recall he eats balls of bacon! I can just imagine Jimmy sitting there smoking his head off (after doing it with Sody no less)... and from there Sody would get George and Maple to kick the habit as that is the only way to get Jimmy to stop (he's past reasoning, he just copies, right?).

Good luck finding those multi-millionaire fans.

Jim said...

John K will rise again.

Duck Dodgers said...

John,

Any chane tomorrow you will post the artwork from "Jimmy's Big Date" ?

There's a series of drawings showing Jimmy and sody in the car and one colored drawing of the two in the car.

I think that would be a great picture!
You could also include Sody's father, that could be a democratic.
And George would try to teach him the Republican values in some funny way.
So while the two are arguing and, in the end, fighting, Sody and Jimmy could have having fun together.

Like my idea?

I personally would be happier than ever if these episodes could be released in any format, but I would prefer on dvd, with commentaries and other goodies.

"Mabel Drops Dead" sounds like it could be a classic up there with Stimpy's Invention and Man's Best Friend. I hope to high hell this stuff makes it out in some form.

Ok, the smoking issue is easy to solve: George asks Mabel to stop, but when she leaves he turns to the camera and say "Sorry, kids, I had to do it. Smoking should be a MEN's thing only, who in their right mind would want to kiss a woman that tastes like an ashtray?", then he lights up a big cigar and start smoking.

Doin It With A Tard, best cartoon title, ever! I really hope this show works out because I'm dying to see it!

Johnk you're a freakin genius. I really want more of your cartoons on DVD... it's the only way to watch them, with a pause and slowmo button. Sometimes it will just be one frame that cracks me up where some eyes will be bugged out huge or a jaw will be gaping. That's good art!

Yeah, I'd kill to see a DVD with Jimmy's big grinning, dribbly face taking up the whole cover.

"I have the right to fill my stomach...." absolutely hilarious. My other favorite George line is "Who wants to lick the pan?" (Holding up a fry pan with bacon grease in it.) Please keep the stories coming.

Evan said...

Just a thought- I think making Jimmy as retarded as you do might kinda be a turn off to people. For example, Stimpy is probably about as stupid as people are comfortable with. Not that I'm saying Jimmy should be Stimpy, I just wonder if he was closer to that level of intelligence if he would be a better character. In the Ripping Friends and the George Liqour Flash cartoons, he always just made noises and drooled and I never really found him to be that funny. Anyways, you know I'm a huge fan, I'm just trying to offer up some useful critique. Thanks for the in-depth posts we all love 'em!

Mike Barrier commentaries, hilarious stuff!

Straight to DVD is the way too go! Then, you can see if any TV networks want to pick it up and censor the crap out of it, and make even more money!

Haha, wow, those plots are hilarious, and of course, the drawings are so beautiful. I stared at the mounted animals heads for a while :)

Thanks for posting this, John!!

Ah, George is back. Does the liquor store that inspired the name still exist?

I'd love to see you make fun of Family Guy and Home Movies!

One question: is George a satire or a celebration of right wing values? I'd prefer the latter.

Also, I agree with Duck, do a Clampett Daffy Duck cartoon, or a pastiche of him. That's like a character that is pretty much a rip-off of another character but technically he's different. My dream is to make cartoons with my pastiches since WB probably won't be making new Looney Tunes anytime soon. Bugs Bunny is called Jack Rabbit and he has a cigar instead of a carrot, Porky is Happy Hog and Daffy Duck is Foul W. Fowl
The W. stands for Walter.

First: Bill, while I think your crit on John's style is totally spot on if you wanted to make a normal cartoon to appease todays execs, I disagree with you in that I think the appeal of John's stuff is that it's generally NOT structured like all the other drivel out there today. Take Dave Johnsons work on Ben10. I was dying for that show being a huge fan of Johnson's art....but, now that I've seen it, I don't care to ever see it again. They took Johnson's art and crammed it into that 'teen titans' shoebox that everyones going after nowadays, not to mention the writing on the show itself sucks balls.

John: Hooray for more Liquor material! George has always been my favorite character of yours. Bill mentions that he is a characature and a criticism of right wing america, but i always prefered to view him as a celebration of all thinkgs American, no matter how ugly they might be. I'll be a liquor fan til the end. Also, that last Sody story got my blood boiling just thinkin' about all those John K. or Katie Rice designed girls having a slumber party! Woo!

One last thing: Check out my blog for my daily drawings and see how growing up with Ren&Stimpy has influenced my brain in the worst ways:

Soop said...

I dunno. I reckon there are some real good ideas in there - didn't think much about the Bin-Laden one either. I think the Sody Pop ideas were good, but I have this image of George liquor as an abstract maniac. Episode ideas I'd like to suggest are:

George liquor drives past Wal-Mart and see's a massive sale on guns'n'ammo, and delighted, runs in to fill his shopping cart to the brim. When he gets to the counter, he enquires as to the reason of the sale. He's informed that Wal-Mart have had a change of heart, and have decided that it's morally wrong to sell guns to America en-mass. This upsets george. He immediately launches a crusade against the anti guns campaigners, which results in TV appearances, framed photos of Charlton Heston, and a national "Guns across America" event, all the while backed by Georges skewed philosophy on life. When this doesn't work, he decides to track down the manager of Wal-Mart and try and convince him of the error of his ways. He does this by keeping him captive in his own home for several days, accompanied by an arsenal of guns, and a framed photo of Charlton Heston.

George Liquor goes to a circus one day, but get's over excited with all his gun-slinging and hollering, and is asked to leave. He loudly swears he will have his revenge and start his own circus - "and better than this lousy fleapit!" George then makes his way to the local pet shop to buy the centerpieces of his circus:
2 dogs, a snake, and … some other stuff. Anyway, he dresses them up to look more circussy, but they still look really crappy, and they don't really do what they're supposed to. George Liqour is of course, the ringmaster. His Circus is an overnight success, and he appears on the cover of Time magazine 12 times in a row.

Well those are just my ideas, and you can have them for free if you like.

a healthy combination

not all groups of people are all bad or all good

and George is just one specific example of a type that I grew up with

If George is a satire of right wing America, cool. If he is a celebration, it's, uh, scary!

As a 32 year old white male, I want to see more Spumco cartoons, and I even promise not to ff through the commercials w/ my Tivo to boot. Execs, give this man a show!!!

Dr. K, you are an inspiration. Your blog has quickly become my most oft-visited site, if for nothing else than getting to bask in your creative brilliance for a while. These George Liquor episodes, for the record, sound goddamn hilarious, especially the first (where the bear gets pelted with egg for wearing human). I'd give my eye teeth to see some more George Liquor.

Let me once again chime in with my 2 1/2 cents by saying that it is damn near criminal to live in a world where there isn't at least ONE new John K./Spumco project on air or available in some foramt at all times.

I wonder if a big multi-million dollar manly-man type company like an Annheiser-Bush "Budweiser" or someone would be interested in using George Liquor as a spokesperson in either T.V. commercials or web promotion???

also John: How far did you guys ever get with the "My Pretty Ass" fake commercial? I remember nearly sharting all over myself when I heard the premise and some minor details oh so long ago, and have been aching to see it ever since.

I would put down some hard earned cash on hardware to pirate those videos!

hell, I might even pay for the videos themselves from one of those 'video stores' found out on the street corner that have Best Buy's prices beat by a good $10.

Seriously, though. Good stuff. Looking forward to seeing where all of this goes!

i think it is the perfect time for a new show
always loving your style i think the new characters are preaty cool and also that geroge and jimmy make a good combination, its like their are opposite looks but are almost the same thing.

While I don't think that's quite a match made in heaven (on several levels) I would love to see more animated commercials. I don't know if the payoff (monetary/exposure or otherwise) makes it worth it.
While I find fewer and fewer TV shows to suffer through I'll always stop channel surfing to check out the latest in Hemorrhoid Cream Technology if I'm being pandered to by a cartoon.

I thought I remember reading that Fred Quimby was kind of a dick... at least Leon Schlesinger had good enough sense to stay on his yacht and leave the cartoonists alone.

We ain't gonna see another season of the Ren and Stimpy APC ?
That's bad news.

This sounds like hilarious stuff. George has already been in two of the funniest cartoons in history ("Man's Best Friend" & "Dog Show"... we need more! I'd watch a show like this every week and buy all the DVDs. I promise!

akira said...

i'd buy anything with john k in the credits...

as far as the goddam George liquor show.. The pictures make me freaking die to see this show, but i don't know exactly how but the synopses kind of deaden it for me.... they make me feel like john has turned all hateful/spiteful or something... i mean where are the ideas like selling rubber nipples door to door, or entering a kitty litter contest.. instead we have killing osama bin laden, and deep inside jokes like making fun of horrible audio commentaries (JOHN: please do more looney tunes commentaries! Your commentaries rule, i like when you have guests on the commmentaries too).

I think it's great to go crazy in cartoons but maybe people would buy a more digestible premise and then you can pump up the insanity later?

you know how most people didn't know ren and stimpy were goddam faggots... well maybe you don't have to say jimmy's retarded, and that kind of stuff....???

p.s. wasn't this show already bought by Fox network?

Wait a second... can we see a picture of mable if it gets like 200 comments? i was picturing what's her name from ripping friends for some reason as i read the synopses.... after she dies i think there can be a lot of good dating episodes.....
i'd love to see jimmy walk in on george and sody doing it and jimmy goes on a retard rage (you know where they start hitting their own heads and stuff)...

anyways to summarize: can we please see Mrs. Liquor (and what's wrong with george hating smoking? i can totally see some hick going way more over the deep end about smoking getting on his nerves, than your typical boring liberal anti-smoking advocate.)

>>Yeah, I don't recall the last time Spumco got into parody (is it really their thing?), but I'd kill to see that.

It was in the synopsis for Osama getting a taste of western culture. Teh adult cartoons that are drawn by three year olds!

I like Mike Barrier's writing but his commentaires aren't very good, my faves are by John K and Jerry Beck, but Jerry by himself, not with guests. I'd love to see Billy West or Joe Alaskey do a commentary! Bill Melendez is good, too! He seems like a spry energetic old guy! :)

BTW, is it scary that I agree with alot of George's views? And I'm not even some old white guy, I'm 16 years old and latino...

Satan's Sister said...

some how I am drawn to the domestic violnce one. i can see an insuing ktichen fight with knives and body parts being chopped off. mabel's are always smoking when they get chopped. even though mabel is losing the battle she is clueless and keeps coming back to life. like monty python or the terminator. also i think on the trophy image she should still be smoking a cig out of her butt. maybe the fight can start with scissors chopping off the cig's cheery end.
also i think mabel should look like my next door neighbor, jeannie - a large portly woman with intense blue green eyes ruddish skin tones and dressed proper - lacey blouse tucked in and for her shoes since her legs are so flabby/jiggly all the way down to her feet - her shoes are along the top to make room for the foot stuffed in them. and they should be keds. also show scences like mabel doing chair exercises to stay in excellant shape. other thought you can show the hubby buriying the extras underneath the house and pours concrete on the part or tar. who know. but during this show him getting buff. then some happy ending with a twsit of fate with the hubby - he sees a knock out female and she smokes.

Kowalski said...

Great stories! I doubt that network censors would approve any of them, but who cares. These are going to be instant classics.
"Doin' it with a 'tard" sounds particularly promising.
Fantastic stuff, mr.K, please post some more. And you should turn Mike Barrier into cartoon character, or at least make his face occasionally appear out of nowhere in one of cartoons, like Kirk Douglas in "Stimpy's Big Day".
