I watched Himself for the first time when I was maybe 5 or 6 years old. The Cosby Show was already on the air, but not by much. It was the first stand-up I really ever remember seeing. There are so many other comedians that I have seen and loved over the years, but this is always going to be the piece that started it and that made me love comedy.
I remember posting somewhere once in a thread about why girls aren’t exploited in animation anymore where some guy said, “all the disney girls are drawn to be generally attractive, but I don’t think there are any eye-candy men… or are there? Are there any Disney men that lots of girls like?” and I mentioned Roger. Tons of girls replied agreeing with me and the original guy was like “wait, Roger? from 101 Dalmatians? What’s attractive about him, he’s tall and lanky and has a big nose, he isn’t muscley at all! Wouldn’t you all prefer Gaston or something? Or do you girls think his big nose is indicative of something else?” and I was like “no, you idiot, he’s a silly, goofy guy who likes animals and can play a bunch of instruments, that’s why he’s attractive. What’s the matter with you? Gaston, seriously?”
This is why we need more girls in animation. And more guys like Roger apparently.
my favorite disney art style
lol “gaston, seriously?”
NOT TO SHIT ON ROGER OR ANYTHING BUT GIVE ME SHANG OR GIVE ME DEATH.
I’m with Giganticism on this one. Roger’s cool and all, but Shang is possibly the best use of ink in the history of Disney. Just saying.
