SKELETOR! (and other baddies.)

Posted: November 7th, 2020 | Author: | Filed under: Blog | Tags: | No Comments »

Here’s something exciting! I’m working on a new show at the moment, and it will be having its first outing live, on Zoom, as part of the Strange Times Online Storytelling Club. We’re not even going to charge for a ticket, just ask for donations.

When Tim Ralphs was a child in the 80s he grew up glued to the TV screen, absorbing endless episodes of cartoons. The Heroes were Heroic and Always Victorious! The Villains were Villainous and Always Defeated!

The rest of his life hasn’t followed the same blueprint.

Which means the time is ripe to re-write the scripts. Join Tim for an All Evil Tour of the greatest antagonists of Myth and Legend. We’ll be looking for murky character depth, ingenious schemes and classy dastardliness in a line up that runs from the Cradle of Civilisation to England’s own Legendary Badd’uns.

And we won’t be alone. Our guide will be none other than the most heinous of cartoon villains, the baddie of which all other baddies are pale imitations: Skeletor! Archnemesis of that bland, burly do-gooder He-Man, Skeletor will be our companion and our measuring stick as we assess what the real role of the villain is in our stories and our psyche.

Adult themes and Cartoon Violence.
