Bailiff… Hold That Dog!

Speculation Theater Monday!

Pat is caught mid cackle while launching a neferious plan...

What if Mr. Peabody was a Lawyer in the Son of Sam Murder Case?

I think we might have been doing prank calls as Mr. Peabody around this time, so we decided to put the character into a real life drama. Who better to interview a dog on the stand than Mr. Peabody? Very Logical.

The logic for a bitter Mr. Peabody attempting to find a new helper was out the window though. We wondered what would happen if his boy, Sherman, finally cracked and left him to his own devices. We assumed the scientist would lose it when he realized he was being rejected, and try to fix things with denial, and getting a new sidekick. However, his social graces on the phone leave a little to be desired…  Enjoy!

    Whoever was doing the voice of Mr Peabody had him spot on, it sounded like the actual voice actor!

      That’s Pat. He does hundreds with that quality. It’s quite eerie.
      I’m still searching the archives for my favorite impression. It the Tennessee Tuxedo crew doing impressions of each other. I still laugh when I think about it. Freaky beyond words. Especially when they start ragging on each other for doing a bad impression.

    I would make a note of a late period Looney Tunes, “China Jones,” which has Daffy Duck playing an Irish detective in Hong Kong, and Porky Pig as “Charlie Chung.” You have an Irish accented Daffy and a Chinese accented Porky. And both are perfectly recognizable as such. Mel Blanc, who did all that stuff, was amazing.

    Pat was usually in that league.

      I agree. Most of the carton and celeb voices were spot on – especially the ones you really didn’t have a lot of background with. James Mason? Mason Adams?
      Don Adams (real and character voices)? He did a great job with Daws Butler’s characters. And a killer Eddie Albert.

      There’s a huge generation gap between these characters and current ones. No frame of reference for the jokes. It used to be doing an impression with one or two lines was funny. We’d have to write material placing them in an odd situation to get some humor out of it – maybe because Pat’s impressions came so easily, we’d take it to another level to amuse ourselves.

      Some of the funniest things were lost in between takes as asides in character. Some ragging and swearing on each other, but also just getting the giggles and trying to make the other guy lose it, even though we knew we were on a time deadline. I’ll have to pull some of those from the archives.
