Everyone: Wait a minute, this video is missing a couple of moves that were in the one I saw. There must be more than one "Korean Madness" video! X%#X@&$!!!!!!

Though Clampett's contribution to the Warner Brothers animation legacy cannot be underestimated, his peers often referred to him as "a shameless self-promoter who provoked the wrath of his former Warner's colleagues in later years, for allegedly claiming credit for ideas which were not his." [1]

Chuck Jones particularly disliked Clampett, and made no mention of his association with him is his 1989 autobiography Chuck Amuck. Mel Blanc also accused Clampett of being an "egotist who took credit for everything" in his 1989 autobiography That's Not All, Folks!

No wonder John K likes him so much haha

Five bucks says he goes into this rant at the Thanksgiving dinner table, and his family gives him the same blank stare all of us are giving him right now.

That's hilarious! Are they supremely untalented or performing geniuses? Or both?

Doubt there's been too much near that level of over-the-topness.

Jennifer said...

Ummm....I don't know, Uncle Eddie...

Regarding this video, I'm torn between "this is so bad it's great" and "what the @#&%! is this".

Still love you anyway, ducky!

Only a genius would let him or herself be completely informed by Wikipedia.

Hi, Eddie

My 2 cents on the "Chuck vs Bob" debate:

Back when I was working for Ralph Bakshi on "Dr. Seuss' Butter Battle Book" I get a phone call from Chuck Jones. Now Ralph was producing this TV special through his company, but Chuck was somehow attached as a "consultant". Chuck had done some drawings of the characters, in Chuck's typical style, and Dr. Seuss hated them. So Jeff Pigeon did some drawings of the characters and we sent them to Dr. Seuss. Chuck found out about this, and he had not been shown the drawings - So Chuck calls me "Hi, Kent, this is Chuck Jones.." Naturally I've been a fan of Chuck's since I was old enough to recognize his cartoons from the McKimson & Freling cartoons, so I'm pretty overwhelmed with fanboy awe - after my gushing praise of his work at Warners, Chuck asks me about these "new models" and could I fax them over to him? Now my spider sense is tingling, and pretty quickly I realize that Chuck has been left "out of the loop" for a good reason, and if I send him these drawings then I could get into trouble or maybe even get fired - so I say "Let me get your number, Chuck and I'll get right on it!"

Well, what was happening ws Chuck was going around behind Ralph's back to try to get these drawings of Jeff's so he could rip them - not for any monetary gain, because he was already paid for his consulting, but just for his ego. I went to Ralph with the story, and after he finished swearing and ranting about that SOB Chuck, he kicked me out of the office and called Chuck and we could hear the ranting through the walls of his office.

Somehow I could never watch Chuck's cartoons the same way after that - he knew I would get in trouble or fired if I did what he asked me, but all he cared about was his ego.

So much for Bob Clampett's ego.

Katie said...

Those girls are geniuses! There's nothing "so bad they're good" about them.

Jennifer said...

Hi Katie - "so bad it's good" is actually a compliment. It's not a typical, standard "good" act, where you have someone singing and dancing very well. The singing sounds off-key, and the dancing and performance are over-the-top. Yet, the off-key singing and the OTT performance is what makes it good.

The part that does makes me say "what the @#%&!..." is the song.

This looks like a whole TV game show based on the YouTube phenominon "The Chinese Backdorm Boys"...

I Want It That Way

The girl with the skinny face does the kind of stuff Curly Howard used to do - like the "Fish face left / Fish face right" move. Somehow I think that knowing what the words mean wouldn't add much.

Shawn said...

Wow! That video is great and really funny! I'm going to send that to some of my friends!


P.S. I like Bob Clampett.

Jorge Garrido said...

Huh??!?! That's your favourite video?

will said...

Awesome! that song was by a Korean ska band called The Witches. Here's the (un?)official flash music video for it.

be careful, it also can be addicting. OMG I need that album.

for more videos like this off of asian television, I really suggest tvinjapan.com. Just RSS it now.

thanks Katie and Eddie!
-will.

They kinda remind me of this duo in a Junji Ito horror manga I read. These two girls perform a comedy routine at a high school talent show... but their talent is to cause people to laugh themselves to death.

This one kid doesn't find them funny, so he's immune to their ability. They try to kill him while he tries to stop them from performing again.

By the end of the story, he's failed and they're about to do their comedy routine on national tv.

But I can't for the life of me understand why two Korean girls would be performing a karaoke song about Bob Clampett versus Chuck Jones...

Eddie Fitzgerald said...

Will: Wooooooow!!!! Nice links! You're right, that song is addictive! I ended up dancing to it infront of my computer.

Kent: I was on that project and I remember you and Ralph talking about the problems with Chuck!

I always wonder how Seuss, a man I much admire, could have failed to publicly acknowledge that Clampet's "Horton Hatches the Egg" was the best adaptation (adaption?)of his work.

Katie: Those girls are indeed geniuses! I only wished I had published the even better version that you showed us that night.

Jennifer: Go to YouTube and look for the slightly different version that somebody put up. It'll grow on you!

This is why Korean tv is so damned entertaining!!!
These girls need their own show!

Eddie Fitzgerald said...

I wonder if that song by The Witches was influenced by an 80s band called Madness. Remember them? They had a good song called "One Step Beyond" which resembles this one. The video of that was John K's favorite rock video at the time.

will said...

I love one step beyond by Madness! I always told my friends I wanted that song played at my funeral. Then in High Fidelity, Jack Black put it in his top 5 songs to be played at his funeral. Dear lord that all takes me back(six years).

good question though! keep dancin.
