Marketing in Ernest

quote [ For two decades, Ernest P. Worrell was basically the perfect regionally franchised TV advertising mascot?and showed Jim Varney?s sheer brilliance. Knowhutimean? ]

It's the Ernest P. Worrel with a story and a moral and a big chunk of hip, trip, double-dip, super supreme show!

?att on Twitter

quote [ ?1. So, each episode of the Simpsons is dubbed into two different versions for French markets. There's a Quebec French version, and a France French version. Fans of the Quebec dub hate the European dub, and vice versa.? ]

Keep scrolling for smalltalk fuel.

Channel None

quote [ For nearly 30 years, many schools aired a daily news show in exchange for free AV equipment. Channel One was a hit?but the ads drove seemingly everyone crazy. ]

You zap from channel one to two look what they have done to you

Animation Is Eating The World

quote [ Despite the quality improvement, in its early days Disney was hesitant to discuss CAPS in public out of fear that audiences would view the films as less "magical" if they found out computers were involved in the creation process. ]

While this article is compiled by a profit-seeking animation tech company, it is quite the read ? featuring nice resource links like the one to the Rogar Rabbit making-of.

And quite the load. Brace for ca. 32M of images and animated GIFs.

The Ruthless Guide to 80s Action

quote [ In a world where the heroes we are meant to revere are mostly phony anyway, why not remember the real phonies? The stars of the greatest, most violent action movies the world has ever seen and will ever see. This is our testimony, conveying the best the present has to offer to the future. ]

Keep coming back to these corny but somehow sensible reviews.

The Slow Death of Hollywood

quote [ It?s becoming increasingly clear that the only goal now in Hollywood is to gain market power in distribution or must-have content production, and then use that monopoly power to reduce the quality of output and reduce the bargaining leverage of artists. ]

Another nice media industry analysis. Comes with a solution!

Gawrsh! Goofy?s entire family may be dead

quote [ Goofy likely has a dead wife. Yes, that Goofy: Disney?s accident-prone cartoon dog. This may require a bit of an explanation for those of you who don?t have an encyclopedic knowledge of classic and ?90s-era cartoons. ]

JWWargo loves this stuff.

Institute of Gremlins 2 Studies (@G2Institute)

quote [ Many of the jokes in Gremlins 2 are imperceptible to the modern viewer - the Cooking cable channel is no longer satire because it really exists. We are heading towards a future where the film is increasingly inseparable from reality. I call this process Hyper-Gremlinization. ]

Chapo Trap House recently did a screening of Gremlins 2 with an interview afterwards with the director Joe Dante. It's quite the listen. At the time, I was too young to see all the satire, now I feel I need to go rewatch it.

Also, ?Gremlins? Animated Prequel Ordered to Series at WarnerMedia Streaming is a thing now.
