Much much funnier than it could have been... each one is better than the next.

Also, much, much better than Raggedy Ann and Andy.

not_on_display: thank you SO much for triggering quasi-autistic dark-corner rocking behavior from me on a Wednesday afternoon. My sister forced me to go see this with her in the movie theater. I had blocked it. Now it's all flooding back. I wonder if my shrink has any hours available. ;)

I am SO camping-out for tickets to that one.

Speaking of Toy movies, y'all seen the trailer for Toy Story 3?

Ron Howard to direct Stretch Armstrong movie?

flapjax at midnite: "Speaking of Toy movies, y'all seen the trailer for Toy Story 3?"

I re-watched the original Toy Story recently and was surprised by how simplistic and dated the CGI and physics looked. Pixar has really made some great strides. And while I was a bit concerned that they may be coming down with sequel-itis with Toy Story 3 (and Cars 2), I'm comforted by the fact that Toy Story 2 was just as good as the original, and that both films occupy a cozy #25 and #93 on Metacritic's list of the 100 highest-rated movies of all time.

Now, where's my My Pal 2 adaptation? He talks! Plays Simon Says! Game of ring toss on his head! BOX OFFICE GOLD.

Dan Meth once drew me a portly arrogant fighter pilot.


That is all.

That was much better than I expected - well done! Does he take requests? I'd like to submit Growing Up Skipper and the Sunshine Family. Doing Things Together and With You...

PlayDoh Fun Factory should have been Michael Moore in the style of Roger and Me.
