Almost Done

You know your storyline has gone on too long when the characters don’t have a clue what’s going on.

Three more days.

Promise.

The One With the 7385-R Soul Acquisition Manual

Not a bad line from Verne. Maybe not walk-off worthy, but fairly tasty nonetheless.

And interesting demon design.  Red and pudgy wins the race… to lose the paperwork.

Do Animals Have a Soul?

Bit of a screwup today by T with half of zombie Dave’s dialogue attributed to Judge Larry.  I’ll cut him some slack since I got him this script super late while he was on cruise with his wife in the Middle East.  On second thought…

…HE’S ON A CRUISE!!

Careless jerk.

The One With DeN-NeY cRANe

I met Mr. Shatner doing publicity for the Hedge film. He’s older than you think, shorter than you think and a bit grouchier than you think. But still a nice guy and a terrific actor.

AND HE WAS FREAKIN’ CAPTAIN KIRK!!

The One With the Grateful Dead Reference

Zombie lawyer, Denny Crane, Ex replacement ref mouse judge, demon defendant and a wacky squirrel bailiff equals one Captain Kangaroo Court.

What’s next?  Mr. Moose and Bunny Rabbit as expert witnesses on the effect of gravity on ping-pong balls?

I’m working on it.

The One With Denny Crane For the Defense

When I was trying to think of a defense attorney I thought of Perry Mason (way too dated), Patty Hewes (from Damages, too scary), Ellen Parsons (from Damages, too distractingly pretty), Alley McBeal (too whiney), Matlock (too Sheriff Andy Taylor-ish) and finally Denny Crane.  Denny’s a little dated, but he fits the bill in two ways:  he’s defense strategy is pithy and to the point (“Denny Crane”) and his goofy mug is always good for a grin.

Denny Crane?

DENNY CRANE!

denny crane.

Simon Says, “It’ll all be over soon.”

This storyline sort of got away from me. This happens when I get particularly busy with other projects. The Odd Squad: Bully Bait goes to the printer next week.  Book two in the series, The Odd Squad: Zero Tolerance, is nearing completion.  I’m doing a phone seminar next week on marketing and licensing characters.  And I’m a panelist next week at the Austin Film Festival.

It’s a bit easier to write an ongoing storyline (though difficult to wrap up) than one-a-day gags.  Rest assured we’ll wrap this up next week.  Thanks for you patience as we went down the rabbit hole over the last few weeks.

Time to come up for air.
