I counted two Frisky Dingo references: Radiated ants (Let’s just hope they don’t start eating RAM and get smart!) and Troy being crushed at the waist just like Ronnie the XTacle (Though that was with giant pants)
no. it was just perfect because he mentioned to Lana earlier in the episode that he was goiong to have Kenny Loggins play an acoustic set for him. we actually only paid to use that little amount of the song in one episode so I doubt it will come back.
Actual people are strange creatures. I try to avoid talking to them. Animated people however can be manipulated with cold, logical keyframes — much preferable. But really, I’m not sure what I do. The animators do all the fun stuff.
@Bryan For a scene like the last scene in last night’s EP where the humor is so visual how much input do you get from the script? How much do you use the models the characters are based on to get a feel for what their expressions look like?
Sometimes the script is very specific about visual jokes – other times the way the voice actor performs dictates how they will be animated. Other times one of our animators will just come up with something and put it in there. I would say the model does not really dictate the performance whatsoever.
Dick Holster was the highlight of the night. I once heard a Yankees fan yell “shut your cockwashers!” at a couple of Mets fans cheering for Joe McEwing. If the Archer writers can work that into an episode I will die of glee.
Fairly certain my fantasy football team name next year will be “Dick Holsters”. Because I suck at fantasy football, and my team is usually a bunch of sissy pussies that are always hurt (looking at you, Ahmad Bradshaw).
It might not be left in Vermont. The new Armory guy might have been there for post-mission cleanup and driven it back himself. So long as we’re grasping at straws. I mean, everything we see on screen isn’t the ONLY stuff that happens. Jus’ sayin’ :)
