Re: can you help me?
- The Care Bears, yup, missed that one but in my defence I haven't
found an excuse to watch it yet, being somewhat above respectable
Care-Bears-watching age. I suppose the Jaberwock's the dragon they're
all riding on, on the video sleeve illustration. There's nothing
nasty in Care Bear country.
The Jaberwocky film, yes, not an Alice film so I missed it.
"The Jaberwock, a monster so terrifying that people caught the plague
to avoid it". This was a 1977 UK production of course by Terry
Gilliam with Terry Jones and starring Michael Palin. Gilliam
describes Jaberwocky as "A play on neologisms and linguistic
hieroglyphics, situated somewhere between mathematical theorem and
literary pastime." The Jaberwock was actually a man in a rubber suit
walking backwards. Peter Salmon is credited as "The Monster" (he's
now the new director of Sport for the BBC). Gilliam is a long-term
Carroll fan. He describes the little girl in his "Baron Munchausen"
film as his vision of Alice.
Tskkk, tskkk, AND I forgot the Muppets version of Jaberwocky with
Brook Shields .... any more????
