    Both Tom and Jerry spoke in the first T&J theatrical movie. Since then, in all the DTV long-form cartoons, they’ve been silent. (Latest is “Back to Oz,” itself a sequel to “Tom and Jerry meet the Wizard of Oz.” “Back to Oz” features, besides Jason Alexander as the villain, the animated debut of the Jitterbug, based on a sequence that was cut from the Judy Garland film!)

    Even his hair is Tintin-colored! Oh, they knew what they were doing.

    Number of years is missing…

    To TXPAScot from yesterday: Actually, Tintin gone bad would be Freddy Lombard: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Adventures_of_Freddy_Lombard

    Notice that Bandy has a Tintin-style hair tuft.

    I’ve looked it up since. The spinster was Miss Fan Sliver, a parody of Miss Maude Silver, with whom I’m unfamiliar. Oh, and I missed the Appleby character.

    Murder in Pastiche or Nine Detectives All At Sea was one of two mysteries by Marion Mainwaring; the other seems to have made no impact at all.

    The point of Pastiche is that Mainwaring parodies not just each detective’s quirks but also their author’s style in each chapter.

    I want to mention Case for Three Detectives by Leo Bruce. Caricatures of Wimsey, Poirot, and Father Brown are shown up by the local copper, Sgt. Beef. (This is given away on the back cover, but even if it wasn’t, the fact that Bruce wrote six Sgt. Beef books might give it away.) Far from being upset, the three detectives are elated that they failed while in parody form, where expectations are so much lower. Less pressure for their own stories.

    You mean the film “Murder by Death,” right? There is also book called “Murder in Pastiche,” with thinly-veiled versions of Ellery Queen, Perry Mason, Hercule Poirot, Inspector Alleyn, Nero Wolfe, Mike Hammer, a spinster I don’t recognize and Lord Peter Wimsey find themselves on a luxury liner and have to solve the murder of Walter WInchell.

    Bandy Dessinay = bande dessinee = band of designs, or in English, comic strip.

    I can almost buy that the pirates come from different backgrounds and have only English in common. That’s why they talk like Andy Kaufman. But the storekeepers too? At a certain point it’s just insulting.

    Heard a good line: “Trump puts the mousse in Mussolini.”

    I was websurfing in McDonald’s and heard the whole speech. Apparently Trump has a hard time with the separation of church and state (and most words over three syllables).
