IT DIDN’T MAKE ANY MONEY, BY THE WAY!

|"How do you like our tree, Fritz?" "THE FIRE LIVES WITHIN ME, PURE AND CLEANSING."|
|Oh, yeah, he's hideous. What a monster, I tell you what.|
|I think they wanted this guy to look like a rich and fancy man, but instead he looks like a footman.|

* The DVD I got started with a bunch of unskippable trailers, which provided me with two interesting bits of information. First, people are still trying to make Felix the Cat and Benji work. Let them die, folks. Not every franchise has to be neverending. Second, there was a trailer for a Mary Engelbreit-illustrated version of Mother Goose. You know Mary Engelbreit? She draws the pictures for your grandma’s kitchen calendar. Yeah, her. Anyway, that trailer said that it is “sure to be the definitive Mother Goose for generations to come”, which strikes me as a pretty ballsy claim.
