Wackiness

Here's my pal Matt Danner giving the silent movie comics a run for their money.

I've known Matt since he started at Spumco as an intern as a little 6'5" teenager. He started by answering telephones (probably foul-mouthing our clients), quickly became an inker - he inked some of my animated scenes on Boo Boo Runs Wild, then became a layout artist and animator on many Spumco commercials and Weekend Pussy Hunt. Matt was the fastest learner I think I ever met. The #$@%&%#!

He is now a big shot front runner for the 27th New Looney Tunes, but he's also wiggling his way into live action. Another famous animator plays an important role in this picture, so keep your eyes out.



These were edited by the multi-talented Eric Bauza, who you will see more of real soon.

And here is a much grosser one:

I haven't seen Matt in 15 years, but he still looks the same - 9 feet tall and 78 lbs. Jeeziz!

(BTW, I always suspected that God was secretly Rip Taylor...)

Mr K.–

I have always wondered what your thoughts on Maakies are. Whet my curiosity?

Hilarious stuff... really reminds me more of Monty Python than any of the silent comedians, though.

If I wanted to get all academic and learned on yez, I'd say that the concept of this short might be based on Gnosticism. The Gnostic Christians of 2,000 years ago believed in a Creator God ("Yaltabaoth") who was all-powerful, but also extremely inept, and so created a universe— this one— that's pretty much a complete botch job.

Which was too depressing an idea for the orthodox believers, who solved this philosophical-theological challenge to their more optimistic view of the Almighty by wiping the Gnostics out. Proving their point, in a way.

As for that second one, I couldn't get past the first vomit, having kind of a weak stomach. Whenever I see or especially smell vomit, it makes me want to throw up!

Yeah, that's Tony Millionaire, the creator of Maakies, playing God.

there was something very eerie about God wearing lip stick and having a Shirley Temple wig. i like this way more that George Burns playing God.
