Batman and Charlie's Angels



I put this one together today based on a suggestion on my Facebook Fan Page. I remember fondly the Farrah red swimsuit poster that was so popular back in the day. When I was a kid - 9 or 10 years old - I had a huge crush on Jaclyn Smith. I thought that she was about the most beautiful women alive (and she still looks great). One day a classmate came in with a book of celebrity addresses, so I wrote two fan letters - one to Jaclyn and one to Mark Hamill. I clearly remember my brothers giving me a hard time about this. Well, I never heard back from Mark Hamill, but I forgive him because he is a big comics fan. A few weeks later, boy were my brothers jealous when a small package came in the mail for me from none other than Ms. Jaclyn Smith herself! It was an 8x10 glossy, and a postcard that said, "Thanks for watching Charlie's Angels!" Not much but still I didn't see any sexy movie stars writing to my brothers! That was a good day!

Funny--all my friends lusted after Farrah, but, like you, I preferred Ms. Smith!

I always dug Cheryl Ladd. Still do.

I remember well that issue of MAD that had Charlie's Angels on it, and the great piece they did inside on the show. Safe to say that if MAD covers are now part of the toolbox, we have some interesting potential mash-ups to look forward to...?

Everything is part of the toolbox!

I just came across this website after seeing it profiled on the Comic Book Movie Website. Some of these team-up ideas are a lot of fun, and most of the covers look very professional and not just cut-and-paste. I did a Batman (the version from The Animated Series) and Bartman (aka Bart Simpson) spoof cover which I am currently selling on eBay.

Here's a few suggestions for covers that I'd like to see in the future ... Simpsons, Family Guy, Archie, Hong Kong Phooey, Darkwing Duck (a must), Underdog, Mickey Mouse, Bugs Bunny, ALF, A-Team, Knight Rider, Hulk Hogan, Star Wars, Forbush Man, Tomb of Dracula, Masters of the Universe, Thundercats, Disney's Gargoyles (another must; Batman and Goliath would be awesome), The Incredibles.
