Let There Be Lips

In the process of getting my old blogs back, and entering new ones. You have been warned. Please subscribe if you wish to encourage me. It won't stop me if you don't, but I'd love to feel more like Sally Field after her second Oscar than Riff Raff after he killed Frank.

Mini Blog on the image you (should) see here: 

The Dudley Do-Right Emporium was a favorite destination of mine from the early '70s when it first appeared until its demise a few years ago. It was also right up the Sunset Strip from my Rocky Horror theater, the Tiffany. Around 1980, I saw an episode of Rocky & Bullwinkle, where Rocky was reading to Bullwinkle from a book that said "Horror." Being obsessed with both Bullwinkle and Rocky Horror, I wanted to get a copy of the image, though way back in those days, there were no home computers with screen grabs, nor DVDs or even on demand. I never saw the episode again, though my boyfriend at the time decided to surprise me for my birthday and went to the emporium (which was connected to the still active Jay Ward Studios) to inquire if perhaps they had a cel in their archive. They did not, but the folks at the emporium thought the reference was hilarious, and encouraged him to order this custom cel based on his description. The image appears in the Bullwinkle coffee table book in a slightly different rendition, as well as a limited edition print with the book in red and a darker background that i discovered via Ebay.  Since Jay Ward hung out at the Emporium in his later years, I had him sign it, as did I have June Foray (the voice of Rocky). 

Hurry! Hurry!
