New Arf Lovers Feature: THE FLYING FLICK!

I’m very excited to announce a new feature on the Arf Lovers Blog! Every Friday you’ll experience weird and wonderful videos. What Doll Man is to Mondays and D.J. David B. is to Tuesdays and Wacky Wonder Woman is to Wednesdays, The Flying Flick feature will be to Fridays. And The Flying Flick will be hosted by…THE FLYING FLICK! There’s rumored to be an unwritten rule at Marvel and DC that the word “FLICK” can’t be used in scripts because it might be misread as a dirty word. I have no such morals or sense of responsibility, so welcome the latest, greatest superhero, THE FLYING FLICK! : )

If you have a blog please spread the word (and let me know and I’ll link back to you).

The first offering is the 1949 Terrytoon “Comic Book Land”. My pal Bob Beerbohm turned me on to this way cool cartoon. This is the perfect kick-off because it has all the things you’ll see in upcoming episodes of the FLYING FLICK: Wackyness, Sex, Drama and that Cool-Beans Quality! I have many more wonky, wild videos of all kinds coming up on THE FLYING FLICK every Friday…so stay tooned!

  1. Michael Burton Says:

    Why would that silly goose laugh at a thrilling adventure of Mighty Mouse? Taut suspense, yes. Comedy? No.

  2. DJ David B. Says:

    Wow, wotta a cartoon! It had elements of Little Nemo in Sluberland and lots olf cool comic books, while still displaying the subtle nuances of a stellar performance by Gandy Goose.

    I thought the soundtrack could have used more tympani, though.

  3. Rand HOPPE Says:

    Great to see this, Craig. I bet yer FLYING FLICK ™ superhero’s given name is Clint, isn’t it?

  4. Craig Yoe Says:

    Yes, Rand, how did you KNOW?!? I’ll let you know more about THE FLYIING FLICK in the ensuing weeks, but for now I’ll tell you that his secret identity full name is CLINT HARDWOOD! (TM)

  5. Thad Komorowski Says:

    Hah, I love this one, what with its rampant borrowing from the earlier Mighty Mouse “Krakatoa”.

    Craig, you probably don’t remember me, but I was the kid you sat next to at the comic-con breakfast in July with Jerry Beck, Milt Gray, etc. Did you manage to get John K. for your Milt Gross thing? Sorry if you did.

    I love your books, especially “Clean Cartoonists’ Dirty Drawings”!

    ~Thad

  6. Brad h Says:

    Now, by Giant, I guess they meant “Giant Nerd”.

  7. Craig Yoe Says:

    sure, i remember you! glad you like “clean cartoonists’ dirty drawings”!

  8. DJ David B. Says:

    Sitting here thinking about THE FLYING FLICK. I wonder if this is the first blog feature inspired by poor kerning?

I.T.C.H is looking forward to your thoughts. Please, no flame. Thanks!
