This strip was written by my Dad, who likes cartoons more than I do! He wrote:
"Cat is sitting under a tree and gets the greatest idea. He runs to tell Mouse, before he can tell him, Mouse says 'No'. Just like work, just like life."
It wasn't long after he wrote it when I rewatched Real Genius, another one of my favorite movies, for a hundreth time. There is a sequence in the movie where Val Kilmer gets the greatest idea while sitting under a refrigerator. So I used/stole that sequence for this last strip of Prophet Buddy. In the storyboard, I matched pretty much every shot from that sequence and tinkered with the dialogue so it would work with Dad's idea. While recording the dialogue, Eric Bauza and I watched that sequence over and over getting the voices to match the movie exactly. Here is my rough cut of the strip so you can see what I'm talking about:
Coincedentally, it's my Dad's birthday tomorrow, Happy Birthday Dad!
