Mostly sketches. Occasionally a painting. Nothing political other than caricatures reinforcing the truism "Politics is Show Business for Ugly People".
Regarding Marty's prior comment about the cartoon's timing:I thought the weird timing in all of the Ren and Stimpy cartoons was part of the joke and a Kricfalusi signature. They seemed to deliberately milk the gag for about 5 or 10 seconds more than it deserved. It repeatedly tries your patience, but in a funny way. The tongues licking back and forth and Yogi's outraged looks are examples of this. Am I the only one that sees it this way?
You're right Tom. Re watchability is what you sacrifice when you play against expectations like that. John K does grotesque well but that lessens appeal. That's funny since his God is Ed Benedict. So he takes the lessons he loves from Benedict and twists them and he lessens the appeal.lessons he lessens, pretty good
Just to make sure my comments aren't misunderstood, I LIKE the oddball timing of the Kricfalusi cartoons, precisely because they were not over-slick-a-fied, (like that word?) and I agree with Marty that it adds to the appeal. Whether they did it on purpose or because of inexperience I don't know, but it works for me. In the same way, a pencil sketch complete with blue construction lines, eraser marks and fingerprints can be more charming than the slicked- up ink version.
It's funny. It's as funny as most everything being made now days. John K oughta take a crack at Adult Swim
