Rebooting Ruxpin - Princess Erin

     This is probably the biggest tweak I've given to any of the characters of my ongoing Teddy Ruxpin reboot! So Teddy Ruxpin purists BEWARE! ...Are there Teddy Ruxpin purists?

     Prince Arin was, in my opinion, a little bland. Plus, much like my adolescence, I've always felt that the series was tremendously lacking in female presence. So I've rebooted said prince into a spunky warrior PRINCESS! Sort of a two birds, one stone situation.

     Again, my apologies to all the die-hard Prince Arin fans out there. Take solace (while I lament) that  I have absolutely NO official clout on the subject of ANYTHING fandom.

...but seriously! Is there a Teddy Ruxpin fandom?!?

What Do You Think This Is, A Cartoon Show?!?

     So I've noticed there's not a lot on this blog about the Disney Afternoon. This is odd, since the reason I ever wanted to start drawing in the first place was because of the awesome cartoons that the Disney Afternoon had to offer.

     For anyone who may not know, the Disney Afternoon was a syndicated programming block of such great Disney shows as Gummi Bears, Talespin, Chip n Dale Rescue Rangers, AND my all time favorite, DuckTales! When I was a kid, the end of school couldn't possibly come fast enough! Every day, my brothers and I would race home and plop down in front of the television for two full hours of animated bliss! Then, I'd pull out the ol' spiral notebook and get to work filling it with Disney-inspired doodles! I'm not sure when I was able to tackle such essentials as homework and eating, ...but I'm now an adult that made it through college, so I guess it worked itself out somehow.

     I don't have any art to post this week, but I did recently get to review one of my favorite episodes of DuckTales over on the Disney Afternoon Forever website.
