The Drawn Together Movie: The Movie! is premiering on DVD on April 20th and CHUD has been given a copy for giveaway. Want it? Here’s what you’ve got to do: Since the characters on the show are gross exaggerations, bad spoofs, mean-spirited caricatures and pornographic and profane homages of existing cartoon characters from the entire spectrum of animation, give us your original creation in the same style.
Looking for the following:
1. Character name.
2. Original cartoon character on which your character is based.
3. A 1-2 sentence description.
4. (Optional) If you’ve got the artistic or Photoshop skills and are so inclined, toss in a character design.
You can use the existing character breakdowns (courtesy of Wikipedia) as your guide:
Princess Clara – A pampered, hyper-religious, and racist princess who is a parody of Disney princesses like Ariel from The Little Mermaid and Belle from Beauty and the Beast.
Wooldoor Jebediah Sockbat – A bizarre children’s show character in the mold of SpongeBob SquarePants or Stimpy who displays many of the typical reality-defying behaviors of Looney Tunes characters.
Foxxy Love – A sharp-tongued ghetto-parody of Valerie Brown from Josie and the Pussycats, she is a promiscuous mystery-solving musician. Her name is an amalgam of 1970s blaxploitation characters Foxy Brown and Christy Love.
Toot Braunstein – An overweight alcoholic sex symbol from the 1920s reminiscent of Betty Boop. Toot demands to be the center of attention, cuts herself with razor blades when depressed, and often instigates conflict in the house.
Ling-Ling - A homicidal spoof of Pikachu from the Pokémon franchise, who battles using various supernatural powers/abilities (reminiscent of anime) and speaks in pseudo-Japanese gibberish (or “Japorean”, as Ling-Ling’s voice Abbey McBride calls it) with English subtitles.
Xandir P. Wifflebottom – A hypersensitive, homosexual, overemotional, and effeminate parody of video game heroes like Link from The Legend of Zelda series. The princess he was trying to rescue strongly resembles Princess Zelda in her adult form. Xandir also wears a protective shoulder plate similar to Cloud Strife of Final Fantasy.
Spanky Ham – A sex-obsessed, toilet humored, obnoxious parody of Internet Flash cartoon characters.
Captain Leslie Hero – A chauvinistic, perverted, antiheroic and lecherous parody of Superman and other superheroes, with a visual style taken from the cartoons of Bruce Timm and Max Fleischer.
