Méningue is Mr Chance (Mr Fortune)
The slapstick comedies (burlesque films) of Keaton, Chaplin and Laurel and Hardy, greatly inspired cartoon creators. They disappeared however and gave way to animated design which hadn’t the limits that screenwriters had.
Let’s imagine, thanks to the magic of technology, that the world of Buster Keaton merges with that of a “Tex Avery”…
The tooney characters in “Reality Toon” are interpreted by actors and evolve into a caricatured and deformed world just like the animated drawing of “Tex Avery” or of “Looney Tunes”.
Traversant les pires situations, ils ont la même résistance face aux imprévus qu’un “Coyote”, un “Spike” ou un “Duffy”.
“Reality Toon” gives the spectator the illusion of seeing the first hyper-realist cartoon.
Dr. Kill, the best hired assassin, tries all his might to kill Mr. Fortune, the luckiest man in the world…
