Letter From The Co-Editor
I’m the new co-editor of The Looney Bin, Penny (short for Penelope
Pussycat, a.k.a. the cat Pepe Le Pew thinks is a skunk)! Some of you may
know me formerly as Babs Bunny, but I’ve become pretty attached to
Penny myself. Anyhoo, this is my first attempt at producing a
newsletter. Hope you enjoy it!
Pinky and the Brain - Round
Continued from Issue #6

Ron "Keeper" O'Dell (Lines 13-39)
"But Brain, what if people don't watch the SuperBowl?"
Pinky, anyone who is anyone watches the Superbowl. Besides, this year's
halftime show is supposed to be an ice cream store worker singing
Culture Club's Greatest Hits. Everyone loved Culture Club back in the
80s" explained Brain.
Culture Club! I love their song... what is it... Karma Cardigan...
nono... um... Klepto Chameleon..."
FOCUS!" Brain exclaimed just as he was about to hit Pinky over the
head with a pencil again.
Brain went on doing some last minute preparations as Pinky bounced
about the cage singing,
"Klepto, Klepto, Klepto, Klepto, Klepto
You stole my hues,
You stole coooooolors!"
ignored the deranged singing as he put the final touches on his work.
"The device is almost complete, Pinky," he announced.
"Thankfully, with Elmyra's sister being one of the dancers for the
halftime show, we will have no problem getting the Micro-Magnetic
Thermonuclear Hypnotic Device to the stage; it will appear to be part of
her outfit. The only thing
we'll need to do, then, is to get a miniature transmitter to affix to it
here. And I know just where to get one."
behind your ear?" Pinky suggested.
but you're not entirely off the mark for once, my friend. We can get it
from the Helmet Cam. Pinky,
are you pondering what I'm pondering?"
think so, Brain, and I keep telling you, Boomer is NOT a chicken!
that now, Pinky. But we
must get inside Boomer's helmet, dismantle the Helmet Cam, take the
transmitter, and then, when he removes his helmet at halftime, we will
rush out to affix it to this device just in time for millions of viewers
to be tuning in for the Culture Club's Greatest Hits, but instead will
be hypnotised into obeying me, and then, By George, we'll take over the
eyes filled with excitement. "Egad,
Brain! Brilliant! Um, just a couple of little things, though..."
sighed. "Besides your mind?"
It's just, well, um, won't they notice when you dismantle the Helmet Cam
course not. The Helmet Cam
never works properly."
right you are. Poit. Then
the other concern is, well, won't it be rather dangerous to be inside
Pinky. They say he's one of
the greatest quarterbacks of all time.
Who could possibly cause him or us to come to harm?"
the Superbowl, Pinky and Brain peer out from inside a football helmet at
several grunting, snorting, enormous defensive linesmen. They, and the
quarterback with whom they ride, quiver with fear.

- WARRIOR'S BAR & GRILL - AFTERNOON
Bar & Grill is dimly lit & smoke-filled. All of it's customers are dressed in spandex and other
Superhero attire. At the center of the room is a round table with a
little sign on it that is labeled, "Just-Us-League."
- WARRIOR'S BAR & GRILL - JUST-US-LEAGUE'S TABLE - AFTERNOON
at the Just-Us-League's table are the Superhero elite:
BLUPERMAN, THE GREEN LAMP, THE FLASHER, THE HUMAN MARTIANHUNTER and
BLUNDER WOMAN. The only one not present is THE DARK GNAT.
Green Lamp is slightly overweight and looks rather unkempt. He is
wearing a green and black costume and a green mask.
So I'm flyin' along mindin' my own business when BAM,
The Yellow Submarine attacks me. You know him, he's that ugly dude with
the yellow costume and the periscope on his head.

Green Lamp! I don't haveta take this crap!". So's I make this pair

great big green beer can and crush it on his head.
heroes all chuckle.
Human Martianhunter, how are your adventures going?
Human Martianhunter is 5'5" and stocky looking. He is wearing a
blue cape and blue underwear. On the table in front of him is a gun
labeled "Martian Zapper". He speaks in a voice similar to that
of Dustin Hoffman in Rain Man.
Not well, definitely not well. There aren't many
martians around these days. I thought I saw a couple of martians last
week, but they were really a couple of fans who had painted themselves
green for a football game. I got into some trouble when I zapped them.
That must've hurt. Community Service?

I hate it when that happens! I get arrested all the
time. I mean, I TRY to save the people of the world, but how can I do
that when I keep getting arrested for dropping my trench coat? They have
two cops following me around now, Bob and Joe. These two guys are on
standby, just waiting for me. They don't even arrest the criminals anymore! Sometimes after I get out of jail,

starts to wobble a little.
the bar owner looks over at them with an angry look. Charlie is
5'4" Italian man. He's chubby and is wearing an apron.

Earlier today, the Just-Us Leaguers apprehended the

The Weiner was taken to the County prison. The mayor
shortly after held a press conference in which he offered the Leaguers
the key to the city and ten thousand dollars. Here's an amazing clip
from the press conference:
FROM PRESS CONFERENCE:
see the mayor handing the key and an over-sized check to the Green Lamp.
We gladly accept the key to the city, but I'm afraid
we must decline the ten thousand dollar award.
Green Lamp stands proudly. There's some mumbling in the background
amongst the reporters. The mayor looks shocked.

That was amazing folks, a true display of
heroism….and stupidity…. Half an hour later, Con Ed cut off the
electricity to their headquarters as the League failed to pay the
electric bill. They have now opened a lemonade stand outside of their

That's all folks!

Ask Sly Anything!
if we really needed to tell you this…Sly!
trying out a new article for the Looney Bin! The object is to ask Sly
any question on any topic and see what kind of answers you can get out
of him. Here’s what a couple of the members of the Warner Brothers
Club at toonzone.net had to ask Sly:
do you spit when you talk?”--Gookie
Gookie, that's a good question...I usually spit when I talk 'cause I
have a big tongue and that just gets in the way sometimes. Sometimes
I'll spit when I talk if I hear anything about birds or fish. Of
course, I sometimes do it just to get attention.=)”—Sly
you eat Jerry (Mouse) and Tweety and keep them both down?”—Will
could eat Jerry and Tweety at the same time, but that's like mixing Salt
with Water...the taste isn't so great.=) Thanks for the question
If you’d like to submit a question or
two to Sly, send your question(s) to me at Penny@toonzone.net and
I’ll make sure they get answered.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, Part 4 of
“Sylvester and the Case of the Missing Ruby” could not be placed
into this issue of The Looney Bin as originally planned. However, be on
the look out for it in the next issue!
