The best thing about Halloween for me is that you can raid the thrift stores and dollar stores for all manner of wonderful props. This set was very quickly thrown together, but I love how it turned out.

I’m not a big fan of bathroom humor, but given Doctor Funkystein’s name, it couldn’t help but be part of his shtick. I try not to let it get too gross though. It’s not out of sensitivity to the viewer, because I know that modern society had fully embraced every form of scatalogical humor imaginable, even in kid’s cartoons (maybe ESPECIALLY in kids cartoons). It’s because of my own, particular, distaste, and just because I think showing a character falling into a big pile of poop is a such a cheap laugh that even I won’t go there.
