Batman and Hardy by dunwich7 Batman and Hardy by dunwich7
This is my entry for the current #FERALGARGANTUA challenge. The subject is: Buddy Mash-up (Mixing up classic buddy pairings)

So here's Batman and Hardy the dynamic, if slightly dysfunctional, duo :D

(A mix of Laurel and Hardy and Batman and Robin)

I would buy this comic without any hesitation.

Not only is this a genius and very unexpected combination, but you skipped over the Laurel & Batman pair, which I guess would have been a more obvious fit. Anyway, this works. And it looks great.

Thank you^^. I had been toying with using Laurel, but thinking about it I found the fact that Hardy is blaming Batman for a "fine mess" quite funny. So I went with that.

And as *MrWolfeConcoctions has remarked, Hardy and Batman compliment each other better, visually. I hadn't really thought about that on a conscious level, but I bet my subconsciousness had^^.

You're right, and your drawing makes that obvious.

Quiet Earth was a great story- never caught on in america because the hero didnt carry a gun and speak in t-shirts...

Yeah, Quiet Earth is brilliant. First time I saw it was way back when it came out. And I saw it in the cinema. I was more or less alone in the cinema, so it was quite spooky.

And it's never too late... the challenges stay open forever really, so you can still submit stuff to them at a later date. The "challenge ends..." really only means that a new challenge will be put up then :)

A very unlikely pair. I like it.

Thanks^^. It was one of the first things that popped into my mind for the group's challenge.

At first I wanted to do Batman and Laurel, but I think the thing with the catchphrase works better with Hardy :)
With Laurel it would have been Laurel saying: "Well, here's another fine mess I've gotten you into" (or Bats saying it in Hardy style), maybe with the visual of both of them tied up on a rack or something.
But I think it's funnier with Hardy accusing Batman of being the one to cause trouble :)

I think Oliver Hardy was the better choice. Stan doesn't visually compliment Batman in the same way.

Another funny pair would haven been Lenin and Mccartney. Only it would have been Vlad Lenin wearing John Lennon's glasses. I'm not too good at caricatures, though.

You're probably right about Hardy and Batman fitting better visually. Though, thinking about it now, might be fun to do Batman and Laurel and show Batman with a beer-gut :D

Lenin and McCartney sounds awesome, somebody needs to do that. I'm not good at caricature either, but maybe it's time to do some practice :D

Ha! Lenin would have to play some Russian instrument. What's that triangle thing with all the strings?

Hehe^^. Laurel and Hardy are quite well known in Germany, unlike Abbott and Costello (their humour doesn't translate well^^).

When I grew up I watched a lot of Laurel and Hardy on TV (as well as Buster Keaton and Harold Loyd :) )

Do you like Mr Bean? My friend's dad and uncle would always watch him and crack up! I bring that up because they didn't speak a word of English and I speak VERY little Spanish, but to have that connection felt good.
I loved the movie where they met up with the famous monsters! Oh, I think that was Abbott and Costello.
Reply
:icondunwich7:
dunwich7 Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2010   Digital Artist
Yep, that's probably Abbot and Costello meet Frankenstein.

I know Mr. Bean, and it's ok, but I prefer Roan Atkinson's other works, like the brilliant Black Adder for instance :)

But yeah, "wordless" humour is great. Here's an absolute classic, The Plank [link]

I remember seing this video some time back [link]
Did you ever see "The Last Man on Earth"?
Reply
:icondunwich7:
dunwich7 Featured By Owner Mar 11, 2010   Digital Artist
Yeah I know that Atkinson bit^^. I got that on video actually, but it's VHS and I don't have a VHS machine anymore :D

If you mean the Vincent Price version of Richard Matheson's "I am Legend", then yeah, I think I've seen it. Can't remember much though^^. I remember the Charlton Heston version better (The Omega man). And I did read the novel a very looooong time ago.

I need one! I have a few things that haven't come out on DVD.
I loved Last Man on Earth. I want to watch Omega Man! I have mixed emotions about I am Legend. It had so much potential, but I don't like computer monsters... couldn't get passed that.

If I remember the novel correctly, it was actually a study about what is considered "normal" and what isn't. Or in other words, while the protagonist was "the last man" on earth, and he thought all others were monsters, it was in fact the other way round, because he was the abberation from the (new) norm. :)

I tried and watch the new version with Will Smith, but found it too boring to be honest :)

If you like the "last man on earth" scenario as such... there's a brilliant Australian/New Zeeland movie called Quiet Earth with a similar premise.
