Ok, comic freak random talk today!!
Does anyone remember those two? If you’re a Disney fan or at least a cartoon watcher in the 90’s era, of course you do. Peg, Pete’s wife and her daughter Pistol from Goof Troop. Also, if you’re a die-hard fan of rule 64 you may know very well Peg as a milf icon (You know what a milf is, don’t cha?).
And with that said, that’s, in great part, the info we can find about at least Peg on the internet: Milf related stuff. Not the same with Pistol that is almost… nothing.
So, what’s the point of this post? Well, I remember have seen both Goof Troop movies that, as I see, take place in a time posterior to the series adventures and, as many of us can remember, there is no signal of Peg or Pistol in them, with no explanation at all. So, what happened with them? Not even in the “powerful” Wikipedia says anything.
Several people, asumes Peg divorced Pete for some reason and took Pistol with her. Ok, that can be, but two questions pop out of that conclusion: 1. Why it must be only a supposition? and 2. What’s the reason Disney crew vanished those two characters? There is a dark and obscure background for doing it?
One of the conclusions we can make about it, is that Peg was sorta a ‘sexual’ character for the show (it will not be the first time I heard that). Not for nothing they turned her into that Milf she is today on internet. Also there is the point of people can associate her relationship with Goofy with cheating on her husband (bad example for the kids, blah, blah) or some stuff like that (In an episode she goes so far as kissing Goffy in the mouth. Yup I was surprised too) and then the censorship people made their move. But that leaves us with another thing in hands. What the heck happened with Pistol? They took her out cause she… was… what?
Ok, with argument holes and questions without answers, all of that can be valid. Censorship can be very stupid in U.S. but, why vanishing them that way? They could ‘fix’ their behavior, maybe look or whatever stuff they wanted to. I really hate that “retroactive fixes” or retcon, as many of us know it. When a story erases a character with no explanation like Venus de Milo (the female turtle) in the Teenage Mutants Ninja Turtles comic continuity just because, that makes you think the autors don’t know what the hell are they doing and, for me, lows the quality of the series.
This is a question I have made to me since a long time ago with no answer and I wanted to share it here randomly to see if luckily anyone have the answer. You have something to add?
I really would see an older version of them both as we did with Max and P.J.
Well, I think I could make myself some drawings but lazy today so, thanks to the authors and all credits to them.
Is well said that the old times were better , sometimes I think that’s an absolutist sentence, there are somethings we miss so much but we must to accept that today we have many advantages that we can live without. I think that the sentence refers to those classic things, those for which technological advance are not excuse to forget them. This time in specific I allude to something that I noticed playing the latest portable applications, those of the idevices of Mac.
Those minigames are really fun, is true that there are some silly ones that were made just to catch a casual gamer, which is a fact too extreme to my taste but, at the end, exists some others that deserves the fame they have.
Angry Birds and Cut the rope.
Was then when I found myself wondering things like ¿what could be doing a group of pigs staying in feeble structures watching how birds with a giant slingshot throws themselves in a pure kamikaze style in order to crush the pig’s buildings in a revenge attempt?. All of us know that pigs lives in feeble buildings, right? XD
Or, what the heck is the little candy eater toad from Cut the rope and what the heck has in the head the scientific dude who takes care of him to turn his alimentation into a Pitagora switch every time?
Then I realized that wasn’t the first time I wondered those questions. In fact, those questions comes from the games magic at all. ¿What happened with that magic?, has been along time since I don’t wonder things like that.
I admire the advances and features that new games can have, they’re great but Isn’t the technology gradually making disappear that crazy factor that gives game developers a wide variety of possibilities?
Not going any furter, just watch this image:
Lets see, is a mouthed yellow sphere who moves across a labyrinth where he must to eat all the small pellets in it, while evading being dispatched by multicolor ghosts, don’t forget the power pellets that gives him the possibility to eat the ghost blanket whom must go for a new one at their house… If this sounds very logic for you, you live in a very weird country and if not, I guess you got my point.
Actual games are too awesome, I hadn’t played many of them cause I don’t have the consoles, though , the emulators helps a lot 😀
Now, you can control Siths, half demons with automatics, alien killer armored soldiers and sure that’s great but… ¿why the determination of making only realist games if the magic of the classic videogame is to create a world out of the nonsenseness?
Let’s see this, why Mario Brothers shrinks when hited by an enemy?
Somebody knows what kind of sickness transmits Koopa’s minions?… I don’t think so but, who cares? that’s Mario Brothers reality and sure it has an explanation. The only thing we know is that is a great and funny gag. Now, Mario Brothers stopped shrinking when somebody hits them in many of their games and maybe they has a health bar, would be illogic otherwise :/, more technology, more realism…
The ninja master, Ryu Hayabusa, suffered a drastic and logic change nowadays. The graphics today makes possible better designs and effects, Is great to see Ryu closer but I don’t know is was necessary to change him from a blue ninja who quickly defeated casual opponents and doesn’t show to much worry about stealth to a dark combo based badass ripper ninja
I like the game, it’s good but Ninja Gaiden was more based in how fast you move defeating enemies wisely while interacting a lot with the intricate stages were you climb and jump, dodging enemies who tries to push you off the cliff or in the quicksands showing your joypad hability.
Now all games looks like an astonishing movie and I can’t complain about, I like many of those stories although not all but, were’s the classic games magic? Can you imagine a reboot of pacman game nowadays? That reminds me of a parody that I saw in youtube 😀
The games classic idea was left just for those systems that aren’t able to run a game with the latest technology, I mean, is treated as a plan B . I don’t think technology means take out the “nonsenseness” of the games which, losing this, have less possibilities making them too look alike, the same thing, different character.
I want to see again the things that makes a cliché idea like a platform game to have differences although it is the typic side scrolling adventure, more upside view games, puzzles disguised as adventures and rpgs that could be geat cause its story and surprises.
The realism that technology brings us, is undoubtedly fantastic and for sure it’ll keep surprising us but I think we need to keep in mind that we’re not watching a movie… but playing a game, at least until virtual reality comes… naa, not even then 😀 The technology and the magic should never be rivals, their teamwork is what had made possible all the fantastic games of these decades.
Well, well. This title is so appealing for me, since I’m colombian. I just found this trailer on the internet.
I don’t know how many people knows about this movie but I just found it today. It’s a movie called Colombiana starring Zoe Saldaña :O!
First, I thought it was a coincidental name, just like “Columbia Pictures” (that, by the way, I thought when I was a child that it has to do something with my country. A colombian enterprise in Hollywood! :P) but later, I found it wasn’t. The movie, in fact, narrates the history of a girl named Catleya (The other name for orquídea, the colombian flower) who was born at Bogotá city. The only thing I know about the plot is that, after the murder of her parents as a child, she grows up becoming an expert assassin and now she seeks vengeance.
Yes, at first sight is not a very original story and even the protagonist says the character Catleya, could remind some people of Nikita but it’s Zoe Saldaña in a colombian role :D!
The description says that it will be Directed by Olivier Megaton and writed by Luc Besson and Robert Mark Kamen. Costarring Michael Vartan and Callum Blue.
Yes, I know many people will say it portrays colombian people as violent drug dealers and stuff but that’s a very old issue that makes another good topic, I think.
Ok, let’s see how a ‘paisana’ looks in a Hollywood stuff.
