Ghosts of Halloween Past
Once upon a time, in the land of Boys Town, on a late October night, the Animaniacs met the Del Rubio Triplets.
The year was 1994. Pagers were still the rage and Billy Clinton was almost a quarter of the way through his time in the Oval Office.
The Animaniacs approached the three stately and elegant ladies a-strollin' down The Boulevard, to ask for a group photo.
The First Triplet was a little hairy.
The Second Triplet was more hairy.
The Third Triplet was too hairy.
The Animaniacs relied on the the kindness of strangers to stroke their egos and take their photos (the Kind Stranger was actually BFF Kathy).
The Animanics were chatty with excitement while arranging the tableaux of six, especially Wakko.
"Okay! One more, please."
"Peter?!" The Hairiest Triplet exclaimed. "Peter Varvel, is that you?"
Wakko wasn't quite sure how to respond. "Um . . . Sean?" Fortunately, Wakko was right. The six of them laughed and hugged and took a few more photos before parting friendly ways.
Later that evening, the Animaniacs came across a portly drag queen.
"Oh, look," she said. "The Disneys are here."
Silly, portly drag queen. It wasn't the Disneys. It was the Warner Brothers.
Happy Halloween, Blog-o-Friends!
