Has anyone else (yeah, all o you) seen that "bump" on adult swim, where FZ's words as spoken by --Dale Bozio-I think-- you know the lines from J.G. - I'm too dumb to even know what act - "Truth is not..." yeah, that. Well I thought for a sec that it was cool to quote FZ's lyrics, and give him a full screen written by: cderdit, but then I thought --is adult swim the right place for that .... well is it??? I thought maybe it was a little bit -- mmmmmmm?
I like these posts best!! YEAH!!!

Why did you post this four times? Once is (more than) enough.

To clarify "Adult Swim" for those who aren't familiar - it's a late-night edition of the Cartoon Network, with several fringe/unusual cartoons aimed at adults. Some of these, like Aqua Teen Hunger Force, have gotten pretty popular and I hear a movie version is in the works. My personal favorite is "Sea Lab 2020" or whatever. It's bizarre stuff.


Since Turner/Cartoon Network is based in Atlanta, and my wife works for Turner/CNN, I've gotten to meet a couple of people who work on Adult Swim - sounds like a great, relaxed place to work.

it's gotta be yours. :)

I'm just trying to find out what other people might have thought about Adult Swim -the cartoon show on Cartoon Network late at night- using Mary's often-quoted words and using them as a bump for their cartoons?

I think it's great. Hey, at least someone giving FZ props in the mainstream.
I think Mr. Zappa would have appreciated Adult Swim very much. As I said on the other thread: Why not the ZFT and Adult Swim work together to create an FZ-animated special? Maybe call it Music and Aimation Is The Best?
How about Robot Chicken doing a claymation version of Cosmik Debris? That would be too funny! :)
