my all-time most favorite holiday tv special ever in the history of the world (thus far)

December 23, 2008

opus & bill the cat in their epic holiday show ‘a wish for wings that work’

surely the only holiday special to utter the lines: “you also have a rubbish can up to your nether regions“, “they replaced his brains with tator tots“, “excuse me, is this crossdressing cockroaches in crisis?” and “you’re going to steal my clothes and leave me naked outside albuquerque.”  brilliant i say.

and featuring cameos by robin williams (the kiwi) and dustin hoffman (the aforementioned cockroach) – this is the one holiday special i look forward to watching every year, and the one that puts a perpetual smile on my face the entire time i’m watching….

enjoy perfection:

a) i will miss him dearly.  he was, is and always will be my favorite cartoon character (and his christmas special still makes me tear up)

b) willfully stolen from forty two:

Excerpt from a Salon interview with Berke Breathed:

Your children’s books seem to appeal to your gentler, Charles Schulz side. But how — without Opus — will you exercise your Michael Moore side?

I’ll be on my couch Sunday mornings screaming at Brokaw and Stephanopoulos to call out the blathering bastards on their stupid fucking talking points and pin the dancing, lying, spinning Tasmanian Weasels down about something, ANYTHING for Christ Bloody Sake THE COUNTRY IS GETTING STEERED INTO CHAOS AND INSOLVENCY AND WAR BY ITS UNREAD UNINFORMED DULLARD SHEEP CONSTITUENCIES AND YOU JUST LET THE CANDIDATE SAY ONE MORE TIME WITHOUT OBJECTION THAT HE’S GOING TO CUT TAXES WHILE HE CALLS FOR FREE 24 KARAT GOLD FRANKFURTERS TO BE INSERTED INTO EVERY AMERICAN’S ASS JUST BECAUSE BUTT BULLION POLLS WELL.

You see right there why I can’t have Opus involved with this anymore.
