I'm serious, this movie is awesome! It's the 2007 remake of the Broadway musical, which in turn is based on a 1960s movie. So it's obviousley based on 1960s Baltimore.
Nikki Blonsky started her whole career in this movie, and she came with a bang, might I say! ;D Amazing singer!
And another song from the movie that featured John Travolta as the main characters MOTHER Edna Turnblad, and with a fake girls voice, high heels and a 30 pound fatsuit, he sang and danced amazingly! ;D Welcome to the 60's
Don't just ignore my post because I'm annoying (sometimes), like you guys usually do.
Da Robot, that was mighty awesome. I cracked up at the Yoshi's Story interval, the Kirby & Yoshi skit and the secret bonus video with Ike in ;D The rest of it was funny too, but they were the highlights!
This was an episode of Steven Spielberg's anthology series "Amazing Stories" that was on for a few years in the 80's. This is the only episode that was animated, but it's usually everyone's favorite.
Of note, it was written and directed by Brad Bird, who currently works at Pixar. He also wrote and directed both The Incredibles and Ratatouille, as well as wrote the screenplay for and directed the very underrated Iron Giant for Warner Bros. According to the IMDb, The Family Dog was his first job as a director, but it's every bit as brilliant as his feature films.
@ Nester, I know I'm seen that Family Dog show before, didn't it get turned into an actual show?
It was spun off into its own series a few years later, some of which is also on YouTube. IMHO, it's nowhere near as funny as the original episode. It's interesting, tho, that one of the series' executive producers was Tim Burton.
I think it's also notable that when the Family Dog episode of Amazing Stories first aired, it was before The Simpsons was its own series. At the time, I thought it was weird to see a cartoon on in prime time. The Family Dog series didn't come around until after The Simpsons had started, so it was really riding on the coattails, I think.
