The Beatles References in ‘The Wish Fish Family’

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

As I have mentioned before, episode eleven of The Wish Fish Family had numerous references to The Beatles. I decided to post some of the references that I remember.

THE BEATLES REFERENCES IN THE WISH FISH FAMILY EPISODE #11

  • When Bass bows after their performances.
  • Brian Epstein, who discovered The Beatles, was also gay.
  • The black and white crowd footage is from The Beatles first appearance in The Ed Sullivan Show.
  • There is a framed photo of The Beatles in Bass’ dressing room.
  • Junior dying and being replaced by a look alike is reference to the “The Real Paul McCartney is Dead” conspiracy. A Paul McCartney look alike competition really did take place in the sixties.
  • Fahn is based on John Lennon. The name “Fahn” comes from “Fake John”, similar to Paul being called “Faul”, short for “Fake Paul”.
  • Fahn mentions laying in bed for a week and eating chocolate cake out of a bag. This is reference to the song “The Ballad of John and Yoko”.
  • Fahn claims to be leaving the band for Yoko Ono, which is what people blamed for The Beatles’ break up in 1970.
  • Harold tells Fahn that he hopes he dies when he’s forty. John Lennon was assassinated when he was forty years old.
  • “From the crapper-most to the tap her roast” references the John Lennon quote, “The toppermost of the poppermost!”
  • The Paul McCartney song “When I’m Sixty-four” plays during the end credits.
  • After the end credits Harold says “I buried Junior” backwards. This comes from “I buried Paul” backwards in the song “Strawberry Fields”.

The Wish Fish Family Back in Production

Sunday, April 15th, 2012

Episode ten of The Wish Fish Family is now back in production for no reason other than I am extremely bored with everything. I am not enjoying getting back to animating again. But what else do I have to do with my time? Look for it to be released this May.

Merely Meerkats Game Coming Soon!

Thursday, April 12th, 2012

Merely MeerkatsI have teamed up with Happy Badger Studio to create a Merely Meerkats app for the iPhone. It is a game where you play as Ferdy trying to catch alcohol. Just watch out for poop and diapers. Get Ferdy good and drunk to try and get the high score. Sounds fun, right? I hope so because my friend is working hard on it. I, however, am doing pretty much nothing. Good deal.

As far as The Wish Fish Family Episode #10 goes, I haven’t worked on it since February. I am just not happy with it. I don’t know if I will finish it or not. I have taken a break from animation. A terrible idea I know, but I am just burnt out since Merely Meerkats did not get into the New York Television Festival. I’m not saying it deserved to, but I still worked hard on it and it bums me out. So anyway, if you want Wish Fish #10 you are gonna have to demand it.
