    I’m suddenly reminded of the movie “Special”.
    A man participates in a clinical trial of an experimental antidepressant, which causes severe hallucinations and psychosis. He believes that he’s developed super-powers and decides to become a superhero.

    The 1939 Wizard of Oz movie had a foul-tempered talking apple tree, well before the first Tolkien novel was published, and close to when they started to be written.
    I’ve never read the original 1900 Oz novel, so I don’t know if the apple tree or a similar scene was in there.
    Talking trees are fairly common in mythology anyway.

    Groot was much more talkative when he first appeared as a hostile alien invader in a 1960 issue of Tales to Astonish.
    He’s been around longer than any of Marvel’s other heroes, except for the WWII-era heroes who originated when Marvel was Timely Comics.
    It’s been retconned that his species’ larynx stiffens as they age, requiring them to convey meaning through complex variations of inflection in the few words that they say.

    Unfortunately, when the movie came out, I saw a number of people who weren’t even aware that the comic strip existed.
    They thought that the “Over the Hedge” movie was a rip-off of the 1994 anime film “Pom Poko”.

    Why would Jim Davis sue? He should be accustomed to other people drawing Garfield.
    How many years has it been since he’s actually drawn a comic instead of having his staff draw it for him?

    I believe that he’s actually referring to the fact that the idea of lemmings jumping off cliffs originated in the Disney nature film White Wilderness", which staged the scene. The film crew pushed the lemmings into the water themselves.

    Don Rosa, the writer and artist responsible for many classic Donald Duck and Uncle Scrooge comics, including “The Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck”, didn’t like Mickey Mouse and would often include cameos of him dead or injured in his comics.

    From his facial expression, I’m guessing that this is the one you saw.

    Too bad Rob included PETA on his list.
    A bunch of publicity-crazed clowns whose over-the-top antics do more to harm the image of animal rights groups than help animals.
    Granted, this is a ten year old comic. A lot of their more ridiculous stunts were more recent.

    The problem with California’s Proposition 65 warning is that there’s no minimum threshold for the warning.
    OSHA considers a carcinogen to be a hazard if it’s in a product at 0.1% or greater.
    Something could contain 0.00000000001% carcinogen and California would require the warning.
