neil-gaiman:


It never struck me as one of the best ideas - Neil Gaiman as Badger. A medieval swashbuckling hero maybe, or as a dark overlord from another time zone, perhaps. Or even the lead singer in a very cool band….but Badger from Wind In The Willows?!
And then an odd thing happened: he just started to become Badger - literally in front of my eyes. With wonderfully simple make-up and exquisite robes, he started to move like Badger, he started to smile like Badger, he even started to talk as I imagine Badger talks. When we finally went on set and gave him his chair and book, he just WAS Badger.

Learn about me, Terry Pratchett, Terry Jones, Philip Pullman and the rest of us…

Betty Boop - Bimbo’s Initiation (1931)

Bimbo has to undergo a series of harrowing rituals as part of a secret society initiation before eventually discovering the true identity of the order’s mysterious leader. This surreal short was the last Betty Boop cartoon to be animated by her co-creator Grim Natwick.
