Movie of the Day – Death to Smoochy

I will admit that the concept of a movie revolving around the apparent cutthroat world of children’s television seemed, well ridiculous.  It is a bit funny to think that once the camera stops rolling, Barney the Dinosaur just takes off the costume head and immediately starts smoking and drinking, all the while yelling obscenities at the interns in front of the young children on the show.  I can only imagine, but if that were true, I guess Death To Smoochy would be based on real life.  Anyways, the point is watching Robin Williams wear a technicolor suit jacket and yell “fuck” and “shit” as he tries to derail Edward Norton in a Rhino costume from stealing his spotlight.  I would honestly watch their shows if they existed during my childhood.  Screw you Muppets and Sesame Street!
