I started doing chrome Goggin confined gloves. Joan europe. All right, Thursday night for dinner it is. I'll tell the kids. All right. Bye. Bye. That's a high point of action for the take. I wanna play the original live action version of the show is well, this was short lived in ran on, on FOX in two thousand and one and the lead on that was Patrick Warburton, one of the I mean, you couldn't you couldn't find a performer. I love more than Patrick Warburton. And so, basically, the tick is gonna prank call the bad guy who's the terror? Yeah. His name is Tara, but it's two thousand and one so there's caller ID, and so the terror can see who's calling, and then tracks them down bunch to Arthur, chagrin. There. You are hiding underground plucking the strings of your dark web of fear like a spidery. Herp. Tear, you face the his fearless site kick. Arthur, we'll put an end ear reign of. Your reign of just took my drowsy. He will never sleeps, Mr Lee on one hundred twelve years old. I'm done Fernado off quit ler. Talk to me that can't quit ler under tear lewd. Gas mention my name, but he'll protect my on that. Right. You big weenie. These amazing. What's, what's Russia about Warburton? That is also what's special about Serafinowicz.

It's commanding booms, and it has almost a dad like thority. But I feel like I really love these different guys. We're talking about, including towns, and Coleman who did the voice of the original on the. Cartoon there's like a door in the back of that. And all this like, like you're saying this kind of sweet sincerity and love and a little bit of vulnerability is able to come up through that. And that place is just really interesting to me that, like it's a character that could wear many different lake Dudley. Do. Right. Is basically the same thing. You know, he just doesn't realize it even more with Ben edlund still to come. Don't go anywhere.
