From IMDB.com

Saying that to kids, "this movie is Sept. 11," the producer of the Canadian-produced PBS show Ricky's Room has announced that he will join in a planned protest by family groups of the upcoming Warner Bros. movie Death to Smoochy. Jeff Deverett also told today's (Wednesday) Toronto Globe & Mail that he plans to take legal action against the studio because of the similarities between Smoochy and Ricky the Rhino, the leading character on his show. Deverett said that he particularly objects to billboards and other ads showing Smoochy, a purple rhinoceros, lying dead on a slab. "I guarantee you that if you take any three-year-old who knows Ricky and show them the Smoochy poster, they'll say, 'That's Ricky.' And that's grounds for a lawsuit," Deverett told the newspaper. Warner Bros. has not responded.

I think everyone wanted Barney dead. Say, five or six years ago, when this movie might have been funny! Yow!

Really, though, this movie doesn't appear to have any jokes beyond the "kid's show characters are annoying, what if they tried to kill each other?" premise. I kind of like Robin Williams the Nervous Dramatic Actor (particularly the "Bop Gun" episode of Homicide that he did), but nothing's coming to mind for the last time I liked him in a comedy.

Griamce is awesome. Did anyone see The Man Show on Sunday and see Grimace eat the Pilsbury Dough Boy? It was hilarious.

Fact: "Ricky's Room" does not attract many viewers. Ratings are low, because it's on PBS...and sucks (probably).

Fact: "Death to Smoochy" is not getting a very wide release, largely due to it's content and subsequent rating. I live in the 2nd largest city in Canada, and it's only playing on three screens.

Fact: Ed Norton is the man.

Fact: Barney is gay.

Fact: Uh...I'm alive...or AM I?

Bottom Line: NO BASIS FOR LAWSUIT OR CONCERN.

You know, after Big Mac and Mayor McCheese disappeared, McDonaldland has been a pretty lawless place.

Birdie was the Stephanie McMahon of McDonaldland. Once she showed up on TV, everything went downhill.

Hamburglar kicks ass, though.

I hate getting involved in these threads...

but...

Hamburlger and the Repo Man had a few too many things in common if you ask me.

Hamburgler - Jobber to everyone with the big Red and Yellow guy as the main guy

Repo man - Jobbed to everyone while Hulkamania wore the Red and Yellow.

Hamburgler - Stupid mask that didn't conceal his identity.

Repo man - same thing.

Hamburgler - ROBBLE ROBBLE

Repo Man - crazy laugh...

Okay, just so everyone knows: Death To Smoochy.... is...... AWESOME. Man, was this movie funny. I encourage everybody to go see this strange (but wonderful) flick. It made us laugh, and laugh, and get scared of midget nazis on ice, then laugh some more.

Edward Norton is awesome, and the acting is just great by all parties.

So, true story... one day, me and some friends got into the great "Grimace" debate... I mean, what exactly was he? So, my friend Mike finds the McDonalds customer service 800 number and asks the operator, "What's Grimace supposed to be?"
The operator answers, and this is a direct quote, "He's a big, purple... fuck."

Yeah, random, I know.
