I have never seen Hercules, but every source I’ve talked to says it sucks, so I’m in no hurry to remedy this. Apparently, one of the mandatory Disney villain sidekicks is a little demon named Pain. This coloring page was originally one of those activities where you have to pick out the nonconformist from a police-style lineup. My take, however, is a graphic description of a few common maladies.
I should totally be in charge of illustrating medical literature.
Mr. CCB’s renditions rarely fail to make me laugh. He has this way of taking the elements already on the page and reimagining it to the next level. This one, he took a page from Winnie the Pooh and the Blustery Day, where a gust picks up Piglet to drop his voice actor in any given 60’s Disney production. Where most people would imagine a breeze, Mr. CCB saw something a little more extraterrestrial.
Mr. CCB managed to pack an entire story into this one. It’s not difficult to imagine a broken, disheveled Pooh wandering the forest for the rest of his days, mumbling, “It WAS an alien. Oh, bother. Aliens. Aliens…” He passes by Kanga and Roo’s house, and Roo whispers to his mother, “Who is that?” “That,” replies Kanga, pulling her son closer, “is a crazy old bear. Don’t go near him; I haven’t been able to trust him since our cow disappeared.”
