I Hate You Meeces To Pieces!

Pixie and Dixie and Mr. Jinks
     I think I talked before about how most of the famous characters from the Hanna-Barbera cartoons are voiced by actors doing impressions of other actors. In the case of Mr. Jinks here, supposedly Daws Butler was doing an impression of Marlon Brando while voicing the somewhat famous cat.

     I, personally, don't hear it, but when I think of Marlon Brando, I think of the Godfather, and this was done before that. Maybe back then, this was how the world heard Don Corleone. Either way, its good stuff, as was all of Daws Butler's work, in my opinion.

     I may be misquoting here, but I think voice actor Jim Cummings once remarked that a bad voice impression of someone works great as the voice of a brand new character. That's definitely true with Mr. Jinks.

Let's Dig Up THE ROAD!!!!

     Here's some more characters from my daughter's favorite television show (at the moment), Peppa Pig, including the IMPOSSIBLY busy, Miss Rabbit, and the strong but delicate, Mr. Bull!

Miss Rabbit
Danny Dog
Susie Sheep
Mr. Bull
     I could say that I'm spending time drawing the characters of a show for preschoolers not because I really REALLY want to and enjoy it, but because my daughter demands it.

I could say that, but...

More MANLY MACHO DUDE drawings of Peppa Pig to come!!
