Subject: RE: BS: Cartoon Characters who didn't make it.
So after the raging success of "Bob the Builder" some genius studio execs decided to pilot some other shows of an alliterative occupational nature. There was me, Andy the Accountant, and Carl the Chemist, Randy the Radiologist and lots of others. We all went over like lead balloons. The only one that came close to flying was Milton the Mechanic, but the studio couldn't get him to stop calling hard-to-reach sparkplugs "filthy fuckin' whores" and that just wouldn't do with a mostly preschool audience.
