    Apparently they'll be running ads where a woman finds him in her shower, and she completely freaks out and beats him with a loofah.

    Haha, they should have beat sidney crosby with a loofah when they found him in the shower on the "nhl is back" commercials. That would have been funny.

    But seriously, I hope this guy understands that kids now adays... not too excited about animated happy little pucks. Maybe if he slashes a guy in half with his new warrior dolomite stick. That would be attractive to younger viewers. But I dont see it catching on.

    Peter Puck was great. Even as an adult I enjoyed him.

    Too cool for this room, obviously.

    Peter Puck was brought in by NBC back in the day to educate Americans on Hockey. What are you smoking?

    The whole question of who "invented" a comic book or animated character is a grey area, especially since many of them emerge from meetings, focus groups and brainstorming sessions. Who "invented" Supergirl? Otto Binder who wrote the stories? The cartoonist who drew the pictures? Or the corporate execs who registered "super-girl" as a DC trademark 2 years before they got around to producing a comic book by that name? There's a court case going on right now over Ghostrider that may clarify the matter. In any event, McFarlane owns the rights now, because he bought them from Hanna Barbera, who have always claimed that they invented the character and McFarlane was only a "consultant" to get the hockey right.

    I just saw an ad in the hockey news for Peter Puck t-shirts. As soon as I go back to the library, I'm jotting down the ordering number.
