Media mashups are a common thing on the Internet now, but perhaps the first ones on record were Todd Graham's Blue Peanuts & Apocalypse Pooh. Created right here in Toronto in 1987 and passed around pre-Web via VHS tapes, they were an underground sensation. I saw them circa 1994 and thought they was not only hilarious, but perhaps one of the most clever things I'd ever seen. It certainly got my creative juices flowing and I always wanted to try something similar, but never had just the right sources, nor the technical means to do so.
Fast forward to a few months ago when I finally got my hands on Microwave Massacre. Finding out that its star Jackie Vernon was also the cartoon voice of Frosty the Snowman, the gears started turning in my devilish little mind. Here below, is my mashup debut, Put Frosty In The Microwave. It is admittedly pretty rough, but I think you get the idea.
Merry Christmas all!!!
