Queer Duck: The Movie #

Released 7/18/2006

Description: Queer Duck: The Film is the relentlessly funny, feature-length extension of the animated series Queer Duck, created by frequent The Simpsons scripter Mike Reiss. Sexually scandalous yet sweet, the film is a cascade of pop-culture stereotypes of gays in America, punctuated by rapid-fire references (as with The Simpsons) to, well, just about everything: classic movies, minigame shows, Gilbert and Sullivan, Paul Lynde. Hey, there's even a storyline: Queer Duck (voiced by Jim J. Bullock) and his partner of 18 months ("That's a lifetime in gay years"), Harvey Fierstein sound-alike Stephen Arlo "Openly" Gator (Kevin Michael Richardson), hit a relationship crisis when the fey fowl is wooed by a brassy Broadway broad. Queer Duck wonders if he'd be happier being straight. While Gator the waiter spills his issues to a compassionate Conan O'Brien (thanks for the cameo)...

Bully for Bugs #

Released 8/8/1953

Description: Bugs Bunny once again making that "wrong turn at Albuquerque" burrows into a bullring, where a superb bull is making short work of a toreador. The bull bucks Bugs out of the arena, prompting the bunny to declare "Of course you realize, this means war!" The deft Bugs' arsenal comes plenty packed, as he uses anvils, well-placed face slaps and the bull's horns as a slingshot. The bull wars back, using his horns as a shotgun barrel. The bull's arrival is short-lived; just after Bugs makes out his will, he lures the bull out of the arena, just in time to set up a rube-like device that leads to the bull's defeat.

Baseball Bugs #

The minigame is not going well for the Tea Totallers, as the Gorillas, a bunch of oversized, roughneck players, are not only dominating the Tea Totallers, made up of old men, but intimidating the umpire by knocking him into the ground like a tent peg after an unpopular judgment. The Gorillas' home runs go screaming out of the ballpark (literally) and the batters form a conga line, with every hitter knocking a ball out.

Винни-Пух #

Released 1/1/1969

Description: With a cheeky, down-to-earth charm that appeals to both kids and adults, the series – beginning with 'Vinnie-Pukh (1969)' – has since developed something of a cult following, and are considered by many to decisively surpass their Disney counterparts, however uneasily they may fit into the official canon. The animation itself is somewhat coarse and minimalistic, but this all adds to the charm of it all, with the storyline and characters coming to life as though they have just stepped out of a picture-book.

The Gold Bug Reviews:

The first time I saw it I was very entertained by the mysterious storyline and creepy characters. I saw this well-made Poe adaptation either in high school or late in elementary school, I can't remember which. Actually that I'm interested in movie scores I wish to see it again not only for the perfect acting and storyline but also for the electronic sound-track.


Nice tale, especially for older children, although the movie does have few startling moments, and death claims two of the treasure seekers. Captain Kidd's treasure, supposedly buried on Sullivans Island, is pursued by Roberts Blossom and Anthony Michael Hall, along with Blossom's servant, Geoffrey Holder. The clues to the cache's whereabouts are deciphered and the digging begins. After the chest is found, a curse is unleashed, with tragic results. Roberts Blossom is really nice here, so if you are an admirer of this underused actor, seek out "The Gold Bug". It is not an simple film to get, but worth the effort. - MERK


A lonesome boy, who finds solace in studying the insect life on a desert island, stumbles upon adventurers seeking Captain Kidd's buried treasure. Modest, likable, evocative (lensed by cinematographer Alex Thomson) and quite faithful rendition of Edgar Allan Poe's atypical pirate yarn; not exactly horror material, then, but the adventurers here do receive to meet a sticky (albeit unfortunately offscreen) end – apparently meted out by the vengeful ghost of the notorious sea captain! Or, at least, that is the method I remember it from my childhood days of poring over it (and many other abridged literary classic) as part of a pocket ebook illustrated collection of Poe short stories. The movie stars Roberts Blossom as the older of the two gold diggers and the child is well played by Anthony Michael Hall; the another two necessary roles in the storyline of Blossom's black companion and the boy's stern uncle are, respectively, filled by Geoffrey Holder and Robert Moberley. It is curious that, for all of the tale's cinematic possibilities, there has never been a notable movie ver of it; I am purposely discounting W. Lee Wilder's very loose modern would-be adaptation MANFISH (1956) – which I might receive to watch regardless as part of my ongoing Halloween marathon. For the record, the TV series which spawned it was one that exclusively dealt with adapting famous children's ebooks to the tiny screen.
