30 Years of Spitting Image joining Phil Collins and Genesis with The Land of Confusion music video in 1986
30 Years of Spitting Image joining Phil Collins and Genesis with The Land of Confusion music video in 1986.
Yes, Spitting Image is a show ( 1984 - 1996 ) ( 2020 - current )
And the Genesis Land of Confusion Spitting Image music video happened because Spitting Image satirized Phil Collins https://spittingimage.fandom.com/wiki/Hello,_You_Must_Be_Going . And that didn't stop Spitting Image from doing it after the music video either.
The other puppets for the band members of Genesis would be recycled as stock puppets through out the rest of the show's original run.

It's sad that Pepe Le Pew has been officially announced as retired / banned by Warner Bros. He's a satirical character. He's a romantic who's probably watched many romantic movies and read many romance novels but lacks experience in relationships and no one ever told him about boundaries, consent, respect, etc.

It's been an interesting week. I was wondering how would Miss Piggy & Pepe Le Pew respond to the Cancel Culture controversies surrounding them. ;) I'm very happy that the originals are available on the streaming services but unfortunately there's people reacting to them negatively. There's this strong demand for "positive media representation" in characters. And to me, this explains why many favorites in pop culture history aren't as good as the originals in my opinion. Many comedy characters were satirical. But today, people think such characters are negatively reinforcing crime & abuse. And unfortunately, it's nothing new because satire has always been controversial & misunderstood. And the thing is satire and slapstick comedy has been apart of cartoons and puppetry just as long as the art form's existence in history. To me, it's artist tradition. I wish there was more cultural appreciation. But instead, art is looked at as a commodity, instead of what art and entertainment really is about. A reflection on life and the hard working, creative and talented people behind it as well as the fun and love they put into what they love to do. :)
