NEW BALD HEADED CHARACTER ADDED TO HIT CARTOON SHOW
Posted on Apr 18 2010 by Greg
Just kidding. Actually, it's just me with the Disney Parks version of Phineas and Ferb, the stars of the Disney Channel series, which has become a substantial hit.
Any show that mentions "Tralfaz" in a throwaway gag has my highest rating already, but it is a well-crafted show with perhaps the most angst-ridden, self-loathing, delightfully disfunctional villain in recent memory, Dr. Heinz Doofenshmirtz.
I met them at a business meeting, but apparently they're appearing at Disney's Hollywood Studios.
I am second to none in my admiration for the show and its impeccable voice cast and production staff, but this photo just seems to prove my point that some cartoon characters don't translate well to life-size 3D walk-around form. They look creepy in the same way that the recent Clarabelle Cow and Horace Horsecollar costumes would seem to freak kids out instead of being endearing!
The one in the middle, too?
Oh, the one in the middle was already frightening children and small animals when P&F were still squiggly lines on Povenmire & Marsh's Post-It note pads.
