With Gisnep/Pixar's Cars 2 in theaters all but the Toy Story trilogy have been airing in shifts on ABC, ABC Family, Disney Channel, & Disney DMX.
But I'm forgetting another movie. A Bug's Life. Pixar's not all that stunning yet in no means terrible 2nd movie.
In it we are told the tail of
7 Samurai, I mean The Magnificent 7 a colony of ants being forced to pay protection grains to a gang of Grasshoppers. The gang's leader the cruel Hopper is played by the talented actor/director Denis Hopper.
Most kids today don't know nothing about history like what Vietnam was about or that there was even a Korean war, and they sure don't know the classics like Porky's, Animal House, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, or the Muppet Movie.
If they would have seen The Muppet Movie then they would have seen the visage of Denis "Hopper" Hopper himself in his very first role, that of the col. Sanders like
restaurant chain entrepreneur Doc Hopper.
This debut act of Thespianisum had Hopper attempt to recruit Kermit T. Frog as the spokes amphibian of Doc Hopper's French Fried Frog Legs and when Kermit refused his several generous yet soulless offers Hopper sent a Frog Hunter after him.
Wanting to see more of Denis Hopper's work I went to the internet to find his discography of motion pictures and to my shock and horror Denis Hopper is actually this:
Star of The Texas Chainsaw massacre Part 2 & the Petticoat Junction episode entitled Bobbie Jo and the Beatnik.
How could he have lied to us like that for so many years?It's like he took a big hairy shit on my childhood, and the childhood of kids who were children in the year of 1998.
