Bob and Doug: The McKenzie Brothers Animated Series

Postby Retardo_Montalban on Tue Nov 04, 2008 1:05 am

The Canadian contingent of the Zone has been sparse as of late, so I don't expect a whole lot of activity in this thread. I just read on the main site that there is going to be a new Bob and Doug Mackenzie show. It's premiering on Global (formerly ITV, where SCTV first got its start) and Dave Thomas will be returning to his role as Doug. Rick Moranis has been retired from acting for a decade, so I'm not surprised that he isn't returning. Apparently he made so much money from "Honey I Shrunk The Kids" that he never has to work another day in his life.

Can I just say, "freakin' sweet"?

Mind you, this does have an Eric-Idle-esque stink of desperation about it.

Is it supposed to be a kids thing or a more "adult" cartoon like Simpsons or Family Guy? Either way, I hope Geddy Lee makes a cameo or two.

Also, I saw this in the article

Canadian Press wrote:Other characters include .... their good friend Henry Chow, who runs a Chinese restaurant.


Could this be the veiled return of the immortal Lin Yee Tan? I sure hope so.

I would swear to Jesus that this thread is a duplicate, but I can't prove it. There's been talk of a McKenzie Brothers toon for quite some time now...

I remember seeing this preview video, and I'm sure that it was here...

Either way, yeah, I'll totally check it out.

This has defientely been discussed elsewhere in the Zone, but my Search skillz suck. Probably in the Random Something Something News thread.

Somewhere I might still have the test clip they made 4 or 5 years ago, when their town was called Borderton and Moranis did the voice.
