The Splendid Quill

I sort of don’t know what to say about this. I was poking through CNN.com during lunch, as I often do, when I stumbled on an article about Mr. Rogers. Having grown up with him in my house and affectionately calling the show, “Rogerhood” I decided to read it.

What I like about CNN is that they’ll throw in relevant links within the article. In this case, there was one that led me to a video post that gave me the heebie jeebies. For real.

First of all, the fact that some sick dude made this thing just boggles my mind. FOR KIDS. Stop motion is supposed to be this magical art designed to bring the mystic to life! And yet, here this clip stands, a testament to the wackness of humanity. I could only have wished to have been a fly on the wall when someone sold this concept…

See, it works like this. We take Mark Twain, because the kids love him. And we do a redux on the Mysterious Stranger! It will be a fabulous night in front of the TV with the whole family. They’ll all gather ’round by the glow of diode ray tubes and watch as Huck and his friends journey to Hell and have grand time with Satan! Won’t that be a laugh! So what do you think, will you green-light this project?

I mean….holy cow, right?
