Hurray! John K. is creating a new cartoon about one of my favorite characters: George Liquor. I was laughing out loud while watching this video. I wish he had a video show where he talked about stuff like this every week!
Hi cartoon fans! I’m John Kricfalusi (creator of Ren and Stimpy). I have a new cartoon I need your help in producing. It stars one of the original Ren and Stimpy characters, Mr. George Liquor, AMERICAN! You loved him in Dog Show and Man's Best Friend. Now bring him to life in CANS WITHOUT LABELS!
George is an old school, manly, Republican sort of guy. He thinks today’s Republicans are wimps. He’s leathery on the outside but all mush in the center, at least with his dear ones. He believes in “tough love” and lives his life according to the rules. “It’s Discipline that begets love!”
HOW DID I COME UP WITH THIS PREPOSTEROUS STORY?
IT REALLY HAPPENED - THAT'S HOW! George is largely inspired by my own manly Dad.
Dad believes in the old values: hard work, rules and most important of all – SAVING A BUCK! Wasting money is a sin against Almighty Bejeezus. Hang on to every last penny and put it away for a rainy day, or face the consequences!
Like my Dad, George craves a bargain. He'll not pay sticker price for anything. He ONLY buys stuff on sale and refuses to buy any brand name products.
Brand Names are a Commie Scam!
