Letter From The Co-Editor

Hiyas! 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 Robin
Continued from Issue #6

Colin Feder (Lines 1-12)
Ron "Keeper" O'Dell (Lines 13-39)
 "But Brain, what if people don't watch the SuperBowl?" 

"Nonsense 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.

 "Zort! Culture Club! I love their song... what is it... Karma Cardigan... nono... um... Klepto Chameleon..."

 "Pinky... 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 Chameleon...
             You stole my hues,
             You stole coooooolors!"

Brain 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."

 "From behind your ear?" Pinky suggested.

 "No, 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?"

 "I think so, Brain, and I keep telling you, Boomer is NOT a chicken! NaRF!"

 "Nevermind 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 world!"

 Pinky's eyes filled with excitement.  "Egad, Brain! Brilliant! Um, just a couple of little things, though..."

 Brain sighed. "Besides your mind?"

 "Yes. It's just, well, um, won't they notice when you dismantle the Helmet Cam thingy?"

 "Of course not.  The Helmet Cam never works properly."

 "Oh, right you are. Poit.  Then the other concern is, well, won't it be rather dangerous to be inside Boomer's helmet?"

 "Nonsense, Pinky.  They say he's one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time.  Who could possibly cause him or us to come to harm?"

 ---

 At 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.

 "B'kawk ... ."

 (Commercial break!)


The Top Ten Reasons Why Wile E. Coyote Chases The Road Runner:

Written by Sylvester

Illustrated by Federica Giulietti
From the home offices in Acme Acres, office #2B.....

10) Membership at the local gym has expired, and this is his only way to stay fit.

9) He lives in a desert. What else is he gonna do...water the cactuses?

8) Wants to prove Acme products really do work.

7) Let's face it, work for coyotes isn't what it used to be since "American Werewolf in Paris" came out on video.

6) He'd chase Bugs Bunny, but Bugs is too famous to be chased. Lots of people would be disappointed.

5) Wants to prove to female coyotes that he is a real macho coyote…he can chase Road Runners.

4) I dunno...he's bored maybe?

3) The IRS doesn't collect taxes if he writes down he's a Professional Road Runner Chaser.

2) How else was he gonna get to be in a Pontiac Car Commercial?...somebody had to do it.

 And the number one reason Wile E. Coyote chases the Road Runner is :

1)   He wants to be Batman...hey, that Bruce Wayne character has nothing on him!!

The Superhero Roundtable

By Eileen “Harley” Delgadillo

 INT. - WARRIOR'S BAR & GRILL - AFTERNOON

 Warrior's 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."

 INT. - WARRIOR'S BAR & GRILL - JUST-US-LEAGUE'S TABLE - AFTERNOON

 Seated 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.

 The Green Lamp is slightly overweight and looks rather unkempt. He is wearing a green and black costume and a green mask.

THE GREEN LAMP

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.

 He pauses for a second and takes a swig of beer.

So he's poundin' my face in. Then I start thinkin'....

 BLUPERMAN (IN A CONDESCENDING TONE)

How often does that happen?

 The Green Lamp lets out a long burp.

 THE GREEN LAMP

So I start thinkin', "Wait a minute, I'm the Green Lamp! I don't haveta take this crap!". So's I make this pair off big tweezers that pull this dude away from me. Then I make this great big green beer can and crush it on his head.

 The heroes all chuckle.

 BLUPERMAN

Well, Human Martianhunter, how are your adventures going?

 The 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.

 HUMAN MARTIANHUNTER

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.

 BLUNDER WOMAN

Ouch! That must've hurt. Community Service?

 HUMAN MARTIANHUNTER

Yeah, people won't stop throwing stuff at me on the highway.

 The flasher is 5'9". He's a skinny man who is wearing a red mask and a trench coat. 

THE FLASHER

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, Bob, Joe and I go out for a few beers.  

Bluperman is 6'1". he has the build of a superman and the complexion of a smurf.

 BLUPERMAN (condescending tone)

Cheer up, old friend! It can't be that bad. Although, I'm going through some rough times myself. (no longer condescending) Ever since my powers changed...again....I've been a little down. You remember my Super-Breath, and Super-Sneeze? GONE! And the X-ray vision? GONE! (sniff) I can't even really fly anymore and I look like a friggin' smurf!

 Bluperman lays his head down on the table and cries in his beer.

 BLUNDER WOMAN

Wow, what a rough week!

 THE HUMAN MARTIANHUNTER

You too. I think we ALL saw you Wednesday on national TV when you accidentally wrapped your magic lasso around yourself.

 BLUNDER WOMAN

Well, you know, it makes people tell the truth.

 THE HUMAN MARTIANHUNTER

Yeah, but we didn't need to know about you, The Invisible Man, and Bluperman.

 THE FLASHER

I thought everyone knew about that one!

 Blunder Woman blushes and Bluperman turns a deeper shade of blue. Both turn slightly away from the table.

 THE HUMAN MARTIANHUNTER

And how about when you said....

 BLUNDER WOMAN (AGITATED)

OKAY! ENOUGH!

 Blunder Woman tries to regain her composure. The flasher whistles a little and the others remain silent.
 Suddenly, the "Just-Us alarm" goes off. All of the Leaguers groan. 

ALL

Awww!

 Bluperman is the first to put his beer down. He stands up and strikes a heroic pose. He takes a deep breath.


 BLUPERMAN (depressed)

Let's go, guys.

 The rest of the League rises and start to walk towards the door. Bluperman starts to wobble a little.

CHARLIE, 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.

 CHARLIE

HEY!!! WHERE DO YOU THINK YOU'RE GOING?!??!?!? WHERE'S MY MONEY??? 

THE GREEN LAMP

Just put it on our tab, Chuck! 

CHARLIE

Put it on your tab, my ass! You know how much you guys owe me????? 

THE GREEN LAMP

We're Superheroes, you think we actually have lives? You think we have time to earn a living? No, we're  out there all the time risking our lives to save the common folk, Chuck!

 Charlie stares at them with an angry grin and taps his foot on the ground. 

THE FLASHER

Hey, look! It's Marlon Brando!!!!!!!

 

The Flasher points behind Charlie. 

CHARLIE

Where??!!?!!

 

Charlie turns to look to where The Flasher was pointing. All of the Leaguers start to run out the door. Charlie turns back around. 

CHARLIE

HEY!!!! Where do you think you're going??!?!?!?!?!?!

 Bluperman trips on a nearby chair while the others make it safely out of the door. Charlie walks over to Bluperman and grabs him by the ear.  

BLUPERMAN

OWW!!!! Quit that!!!

CHARLIE

You! You are going to do dishes!!!

 Bluperman is dragged towards the kitchen in the back by his ear.  

 

 INT. - WARRIOR'S BAR & GRILL - KITCHEN - EVENING

Bluperman is washing dishes and watching the TV across from him.

 TELEVISION SCREEN: 

REPORTER ON T.V.

Earlier today, the Just-Us Leaguers apprehended the notorious villian, The Gaseous Weiner.  

The Gaseous Weiner is shown in handcuffs being led by police into a police car. 

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:

 CLIP FROM PRESS CONFERENCE:

 We see the mayor handing the key and an over-sized check to the Green Lamp.

 THE GREEN LAMP

We gladly accept the key to the city, but I'm afraid we must decline the ten thousand dollar award.  

The Green Lamp stands proudly. There's some mumbling in the background amongst the reporters. The mayor looks shocked. 

CUT TO - REPORTER ON TV 

REPORTER ON TV

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 headquarters in hopes of generating enough profit to pay the bill. That's all folks!

 INT. WARRIOR'S BAR & GRILL – KITCHEN - NIGHT

Bluperman turns the T.V. off and starts mumbling under his breath. He continues to wash the dishes.

Ask Sly Anything!

By…as if we really needed to tell you this…Sly!

 We’re 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:

 “Why do you spit when you talk?”--Gookie

 “Well 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

 ---

“Can you eat Jerry (Mouse) and Tweety and keep them both down?”—Will 

“Dear Will,

 I 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 bro!”—Sly

 ---

 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!


And now…the credits!
