Leslie Nielsen...the guy who completely changed genres but never altered his acting style one bit (as Joe Bob Briggs pointed out). happy.png

One of my biggest disappointments was finding out that, although he did make a couple of appearances on Columbo, he never once played the crook. sad.png

Worked with him for about three years on Katie and Orbie... and he never once picked up a paycheck. He donated them all to kids' charities.

Still, I gotta wonder...was he serious about that, or was he kidding?

That was actually me going "squawk!" at 3:35.

Very nice cartoon, I presume you drew the blueemu, that'd explain your user name.

My job was series choreographer... the technical term for my job in cartoons is "Leica Edit".

I would decide just how much time each action should take (eg: 16 frames to hop out of the chair, then five ten-frame steps to reach the edge of the camera field and exit the screen, then we hold on the empty room for eight frames before cutting to the next scene).

I occasionally did a few other things, like screenwriting or voice acting... SQUAWK!

Interesting, google doesn't show relevant results upon searching either name.

 

BTW, here's an Emu* I found in Myanmar:

*Or maybe it's a Kiwi.

That's awesome.

Yeah, he was a good guy. I've never read anywhere about him doing this charity work, but I saw it with my own eyes. I guess he didn't want publicity for it.

Do good by stealth, that's the ticket.

Great story.  Always loved Leslie N, now... even more.  My favorite scene he did is when Priscilla Presley climbed the ladder....NAKED GUN.

Leslie looks up her skirt and says, “Nice Beaver!”

Priscilla says, “Thank you, I just had it stuffed.”

Then she actually hands down a stuffed beaver to Leslie.  It’s an hilarious scene.

Anyway, 949 worked at a theatre back then, so I’ve memorized a lot of lines from classic movies.

Now I know for a fact that this is a touchy job.  My profession is related to arts and graphics.  One too many frames, looks awkward.  Too few frames, and the action doesn’t flow smoothly.

Of course, Leslie never once picked up the check at a restaurant either!

Hey, if he’d have a happy hour drink with me, i’d Gladly pick up the tab.

- I pay the check, no worries.

- No, I pay

- No, I pay.

- No, I pay you to shut up and allow me to pay the check.

"What is kiss?"

IronIC_U

Keep It Simple St***d.

Sealed with a KISS

ghost_of_pushwood

"And stop calling me Stupid!"

IronIC_U

Okay, as long as 949 can still kiss you?
