Barbra Streisand and Seth MacFarlane recorded Pure Imagination from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and someone needs to call the Oompa Loompas ASAP. Time for them come on over and take them away for destroying such a beautiful song. Glee got it right. Josh Groban got it right. Maroon 5 got it semi-right. Mariah Carey got it wrong. And now MacBabs are giving Mimi a run for worst cover of the song that still haunts us thanks to Gene Wilder. That is the thing that MacBabs missed about the tune, yes it is beautiful but it is also haunting. Without that factor, the song is no different than any other ballad.
And what is up with Babs arm movements as she sang the song. Take them to The Chocolate Room and tell them the water is safe to drink!
Oompa, Loompa, doom-pa-dee-do
I have a perfect puzzle for you
Oompa, Loompa, doom-pa-dee-dee
If you are wise, you’ll listen to me.
What do you get when you sing a duet?
Singing as hyper as a wooden puppet
What are you at getting terribly flat?
What do you think will come of that?
I don’t like the sound of it.
A lot of actors from the United States have done have commercials overseas that they hope we will never see in America, and Ashton Kutcher is one of them. He did an ad in Korea for Dr Lee’s Pet Engine Cooking Bag (which does exactly what the title says), and you can’t blame him for wanting to keep this part of his acting career secret. But unfortunately for him and fortunately for us, Family Guy uncovered it and aired it during the show yesterday.
If I were his wife Meg Griffin, I mean Mila Kunis, I would be cautious about leaving him alone with their baby if he has those bags nearby. At least until she is too big to fit in it.
Fox is adding a new show to its Sunday Animation Domination lineup tonight at 9:30p and I am not sure if Seth MacFarlane or Donald Trump is producing it. Bordertown is about Bud Buckwald and Ernesto Gonzalez, who live in the border town Mexifornia, and their families. Bud is a border agent and he is not a big fan of immigrants. His neighbor is Ernesto and he has been in the country for 10 years and has a landscaping company.
On tonight’s season premiere, their oldest children will announce their engagement and Bud is not happy about it. Everyone but him knew they were going out and that is not the only reason why he is unhappy with the news. Will he accept their marriage?
Then on next week’s episode he finds a lot of drug money and convinces to the town to build a border wall. I bet this episode will be like porn to Donald Trump.
I normally like Fox’s animated shows, but this one I think needs to be on the other side of the border wall. Let me know what you think of it.
Family Guy has been having a lot fun making fun of Bill Cosby since before the scandal and they’ve been having even more fun since it broke. Yesterday, they reworked the opening of The Cosby Show and had all the leading ladies passed out while he did his danced around in a colorful sweater. If only they brought Phylicia Rashād, Lisa Bonet and Tempestt Bledsoe into the mix, I would’ve been OK. But why did they have to add the late greats Bonnie Franklin and Bea Arthur? What did they do to deserve that? It’s not like they can defend themselves. Just like…
Seth MacFarlane was on The Tonight Show yesterday and Jimmy Fallon challenged him to a game of Wheel of Impressions. Basically the two of them hit a button to find out which celebrity voice they would have to impersonate and what topic they would be talking about as that person. Obviously, Seth MacFarlane nailed every voice because he is an impression wonder. His first one was Liam Neeson, his last one was Ray Romano and his best one was Bobcat Goldthwait. If you closed your eyes you could actually picture the comedian with his long red scraggly hair harassing the barrister at Starbucks. I wish he Bobcat would bring back his infamous persona.
BTW someone Tweeted, “Thanks @jimmyfallon … #googled @bcgoldthwait so I could appreciate @SethMacFarlane’s impression! #SpotOn”. To which Bobcat Tweeted back, “I’m not sure which part of this I find more depressing.” Poor Bobcat!
