The Mental Suppository will be back later in the year with brand new episodes and brand new surprises. But for now, we have a special First Day of Summer Presentation: The Metal Suppository LIVE at the Hotel Vernon reading a radio script titled Man’s Best Friend. An unproduced pilot for a radio series which would have featured Walt Kelly’s comic strip character Pogo Possum. The script itself was printed in The Best of Pogo. A collection of Kelly’s earlier comic strips. One of the stories from those early strips was the inspiration for the unproduced radio play.
Bret, a long time fan of the strip, was inspired by the Twitter group Pogo Re-Antiquated
@pogoreanimated who did a group project of doing their own short animated versions of the animated special Pogo’s Special Birthday Special originally produced by Chuck Jones. Bret decided to get the gang together to record this script.
If anyone involved in that group would be interested in taking what the group recorded and putting it to animation, please contact us.
But for now, sit back and enjoy this either in your living room, deck or front porch with a cool drink on a early summer night.
