Follies of the Madmen #219

The connection? I can only assume that once upon a time, tennis rackets were restrung with sheep guts. But the image is certainly bizarre.

Original ad here.

Fresh-Up Freddie

Disney characters have touted much merch. But rarely has the studio designed a character expressly as a corporate spokesman. The exception is Fresh-Up Freddie for 7-Up.

But what a godawful mess he was, all over the stereotype map.

In this non-embeddable commercial Freddie is manic like Woody Woodpecker or Daffy Duck. Then he does a Maurice Chevalier imitation. There are real humans and teenybopper birds.



Still manic, but now he's also a "teenager" Fred Astaire.



Some kind of socialite William Powell/Richie Rich.



Texas oil baron.



Now he talks like Speedy Gonzalez, as a bullfighter.



Cowboy.



And last but not least, Freddie has a sex change.

That sure is a swell tune. Weird video, though.

I have no explanation for this micro-video. It might be the work of this fellow. But whatever the source, whatever the intention, it sure is weird.

Atomic Rabbit

image

Radiation makes everything better.

From this encyclopedia entry:

Atomic Rabbit was a lot like Atomic Mouse, but with a species change and a couple less supporting characters. He protected Rabbitville, rather than Mouseville, from the depredations of Sly Fox, rather than Count Gatto. Instead of an inept assistant, Sly had two kids.

He, too, got his super powers from doubly-forbidden fruit by today's standards — drugs and radiation. But while both their power-enhancers were as radioactive as can be, Mouse's was more blatantly a drug. He got his super powers from U-235 pills, whereas Rabbit's U-235 carrots could be passed off as good nutrition, like Atomictot's vitamins and Popeye's spinach. But while Popeye of the E.C. Segar comics ate lots of spinach for strength through nutrition, the animated Popeye treated it like a drug, getting a huge rush from it and sometimes, just for emphasis, sucking it in through his pipe. Good nutrition or not, Atomic Rabbit definitely fell into the category of drug-based superheroes.


Ten full issues here.
