This picture brings me joy & sadness. You may remember this sketch from the last season of TGS. The sketch that aired, only had one bear in it. Liz wouldn’t let me use 4 bears for budget reasons. The new season of TGS is still a little while away, but it’s time for me to start thinking about sketches for the new season. I’m hoping next season we have a bigger budget so I can do this sketch again, but this time the way I originally envisioned it, with the 4 bears, or preferably with 6 bears!
This is a radioactive robot that knows karate & I think 6 wild bears would give it a good fight. Also next season, I hope the costume makers can make more realistic-looking bears. I think the robot is realistic, but the bear costumes just need some fine-tuning. Or better yet, forget costumes, I’m going to try and convince Liz to let me use real bears. There’s nothing like getting the real thing. And I think directing the bears would be pretty easy. I’ve been to the circus & I’ve seen what they can do when trained properly. I mean if a clown with stupid make-up and huge goofy shoes can boss a bear around, I think I can too. I’m going to try contacting Greta, maybe she has bears now. Last season she only trained cats. But who knows, maybe she’s upgraded.
Oh, I almost forgot. Laney, your comment from last week’s blog turns me on.
