Wally Man 5 leftovers



Well I'm running out of Wally stuff for the moment, but here's a look at his 3 zany nephews. He hates them. We never figure out exactly who they are related to-him or Petunia. Neither one actually has any place they could actually come out of. I think cartoon nephews must come about by spontaneous generation. Cartoons are like Christian science.

Maybe we can do a flashback to their births in petrie dishes. Wally can be practicing alchemy in his lab of ungodly activities.



My friend Mike Kerr suggested we leak a sex tape of Wally and Petunia onto the web and it becomes a huge viral hit like Paris Hilton's. Wally and Petunia would gain instant fame and notoriety. They could then charge $20,000 to appear at your party for 15 minutes. I love the idea but I fear it would hinder Wally's success as a kiddie cartoon.

I like the character design of the Wally man in the Pink bow tie...good stuff with those two red mickey-mouse esque buttons...or are they genetle herpes? I'd laugh either way.

haha, side note. its such a small detail. but i always love those colly flower ears you throw on your characters john. i donno why. they just appeal to me.

FIRST COMMENT mafk!

Shawn said...

That "Wally Man" lettering looks pretty phalic. Maybe Wally uses the top of one of the "L's" and slides it into Petunia's "P".
Then the sex tape can be educational and it can still be a kiddie cartoon. Like Sesame Street.

"Today's episode of Wally Man has been brought to you be the letters L, P, and the number 3 (as in, if you have sex with your cartoon girlfriend, you get stuck with 3 lousy nephews)."

and i dont know what gene pool you come from. but if you have sex with your girlfirend. Any offspring you have would be sons or daughters. Definately not nephews. but with a lot of inbreeding, i guess any family tree could get confusing.

If I was a network exec. looking for a children's cartoon, any you John presented that summary to me, I would buy it a instant. Love the sex tape idea, but, like you said, this is a children's cartoon. Perhaps an innuendo? Such as: The room is dark, and all you can hear is sexual entendres. Petunia example: Oh Wally, my melons are falling out! That might get past the censors. But once again, Wally is probably already one of my favorite Spumco characters. When did you come up with him?

Once again. zing.

Jorge Garrido said...

Hilarious. Who's the other wacky mouse character? How come Wally Man looks like Ben Kingsley?

Shawn said...

Come to think of it, that was pretty dumb, wasn't it? Sorry, I just woke up, and and the joke machine isn't warmed up yet.

I forgot that everyone here either needs to be a comedian or an asshole. I think I know which one you are.

Kali Fontecchio said...

I think Wally Man looks way better than Paris Hilton. Aughhh!

Evan said...

After reading your little description of it being the ultimate wacky cartoon taken to its furthest illogical conclusion, I understand it a lot better. I love the idea.

KIDDIE CARTOON?

John, didn't you say that it was a family show?

And regarding the idea for a sex tape, how can cartoon porn possibly be funny?

How can cartoon porn not be funny?

The GagaMan(n) said...

That sex tape idea might be the only way this cartoon will get picked up by excecs. Although, your aiming this to be a kids show? I can't see that happening. The lettering is phalic, and just about everything else from this cartoon idea is so far. XD

Brian P. Stone said...

How WOULD they have sex, anyway? My mental picture isn't too pleasant... something like how amoebas or bacteria split in two. They just... don't seem to have the parts for it!

Anonymous said...

Sorry Shawn. Can you blame me? How can one stay so silent when someone else has said something so stupid. I couldnt resist the opportunity.

At my best i like to think im an asshole AND a comedian. eyyyyy!

However Shawn, I will point out youre quite a talented artist. So, you win some, you lose some.

A Wally Man sex tape, Paris Hilton style? Kinda makes me think of Rubber Johnny:

Josh "Just What the Doctor Ordered" Heisie said...

I thought you said Wally or Petunia don't have naughty bits...so how could they have sex?!?

Anyway, awesome stuff again, Mr K!

JohnK said...

>>I thought you said Wally or Petunia don't have naughty bits...so how could they have sex?!?<<

They play with bowties and pigtails.

Eric C, a prerequisite to thinking cartoon porn being funny is being laid at least once.

Then I guess you'll never laugh at cartoon porn.

Here's a thought John.

Try as hard as you possibly can to make it a series, if T.V hippys or the direct to dvd people still don't like go ahead and make the porn video and show it to them and say "this is what it could look like, but instead I'm making it look like this.." and show them a clip of the kiddie Wally Man cartoon to convince them.

Err hi (again). I've done a piece of Ren'n'Stimpy Fan-Art and want to show it to you Mr K. It was only to practise some painting.

I'm a student!

How can I show it to you?

BILL said...

hey john

i think it would be a hilarious addition to the Wally Man design if you put ears on his butt instead of his "head" so then when people have to whisper to him they would be talking to his butt.

Jesse Oliver said...

Hi John

"COOL STUFF!" Wally Man & Petunia Man remind me of a parody of Porky Pig & Petunia Pig, don't they? Still, this is really cool future SPUMCO material your posting up here.

QUESTION:

If Wally Man said the word Bird would he really say the woid Boid?

Roberto González said...

Well, they actually look as if they have born in petrie dishes. I think I like these nephews more than the other secondary characters in this show. They look extremely weird and funny. Wally himself has a very likeable aspect too.

I don't have a clear opinion abut the story ideas,I like some of them, others seem average for me, but I would have to watch it animated to really be sure about it.

If you have more stuff I would really like to see more entries about George and He Hog. I think the Goddamn George Liquor show could be even better than Ren and Stimpy if you had the chance to do it. The variety of characters in that universe is huge: George who is a fast-talking guy, Jimmy,who is pretty much a silent cartoon character, Sody, a sexy girl, Cigarrettes and Dirty Dog (both classic cat and dog cartoons and antropomorphic cinema noir-esque characters depending of the moment), Slab and Ernie (Beavis and Butthead types)...it seems like one of the best shows anyone could think of.

The Butcher said...

I say, keep the nephew's origins a mystery! Don't break the chain of inexplicable cartoon nephews!

Anonymous said...

I doubt that any TV exec. would even LOOK at Wally Man...and as for being a kiddie show, I doubt it...if anything, this is an "Entertain John K. by regurgitating everything from classic cartoons badly" show. This stuff is old hat, kids wouldn't buy this stuff anymore.

that wally man turns me on

this is kinda off topic here but ya know wat i miss?

Spumco's official website

SPIDER MAN 3 TRAILER :D

Wally man....ehhh. This whole thing feels like an inside gag for animation historians.

A bald, naked, old-guy-looking peanut with shiny flesh. Eww. Thanks but no thanks.

"A bald, naked, old-guy-looking peanut with shiny flesh. Eww. Thanks but no thanks."

That sounds like a "In" gag?

bardhol said...

You could use the make-believe premise that the show has been on for 2 or 3 seasons and the shareholders, or whoever decides these things, wants fresh meat, just like when they introduced Scrappy Doo, or just about any "cousin" character on any sitcom ever. That's when a highly stylized stop motion version of you, almost Benny Hill-like in quality sits down to draw the stupidest, most unappealing, ridiculous characters you can (no offense), only to find (much like Berke Breathed with Bill the cat) that the joke is on you, John K. Your corporate executive overlords love them. Their snot nosed kids love them. Everybody eats them up. They have no place within the continuum of the Wally Man universe - Their mother was filthy lucre and their father was a man named "Nielsen". Howsabouddat? I wisht I'd a made it even crazier but it's past my bed time.

And there aint nuthin wrong wit dat. ;)

Yeah, John pull out ALL the cartoon cliches and have fun with them. AND definitely incorporate wat Bradhol said. That would be hilarious and brilliant.

Oh, yeah, and Friz Clampett rules but Bob Freleng sucks. Or something like that.

Wally Man Gets Shingles

Wally Man needs extra money and takes a job as a farmhand. They start him out milking the hogs. He is all thumbs at this, and gets hog milk on his skin, and besides that the barnyard environment is bad for him. He comes down with a bad case of shingles, which in Wally Man's case look like the kind of shingles you'd see on a hillbilly's outhouse (thick rough wood). It isn't all bad, because initially the shingles provide protection against the sun and rain, but eventually Wally Man starts having problems: Termites begin infesting his shingles; he is tormented by nesting sparrows, then by woodpeckers. Kids shoot bottle rockets, which land in his shingles and catch him on fire. Finally he gets so fed up that he hires a roofing contracter to have his shingles removed.

Hey, while we're on the subject of presenting TV show ideas: SYCOPHANT TIME!!

Hey, John, I also have two TV show ideas that I would like to make a reality someday. Plot & character synopsis of both are on my blog. One is called Brooding Idiot with a Big Gun and the other is Fetal Squad.

Let me know what you think.

Sorry, but this doesn't at all strike me as a kids' cartoon.

Cartoon porn may be hilarious, but I don't think it's appropriate for a 6-year old to watch, and I can't see a network disagreeing.

The designs are funny, though. I can see it on Adult Swim or Spike or something similiar.

Gavin Freitas said...

I like this idea John. Porn cartoons rule!! See if Spumko can animate just like a 30sec trailer.

What's all this about the lettering being "phallic"? It's based on fingers. Look at the nails and stuff.

Oh, I get it. For some guys all they ever see down there are their fingers, so the association makes perfect sense.


I'm still laughing at "He has every speech impediment", and "He polishes first."

Maybe Wally Man and Petunia Man engage in romantic congress by Wally Man trying to undo Petunia's pigtails while she undoes his bowtie.

Add: One kid at an animation festival I did refused to watch Bob Clampett cartoons because he had read in Mel Blanc's book Mel did not like working for Bob. "Do you know why?" I asked the kid. "No," he said, "Because Bob would not settle for just whatever Mel wanted to give him. He made Mel do his best work."

"I don't believe you," said the kid and stormed out.
