Dude just minding his own business.

 

You know, never seen Puff the Magic Dragon. I like looking into older and more obscure (to me) movies, let's see what I find.

That title... :lol:

Gosh, they're so dangerous, but so darn epic. Everything about them is just mesmerizing. Is this another picture from that snake farm? Must be so amazing to get so close to such a deadly snake.

Yes, exactly. :)

I loved the Puff Adders there. One of them was constantly rubbing his face over his own body, just as if he was scratching himself.

Haha, that's a cool thing to see them doing. I suppose it shows their "not always an uber-deadly killer" side. :) Was is close to shedding or something?

Funny enough: No, he wasn't. Superclear eyes (as seen above) and the pattern was just as bright as can be. Perhaps he just felt some itching. :P

I've always wondered...why do they call them adders? Do they...add things?

That's true! And, technically, you can add negative numbers >_>

Gern geschehen :) bei dem gesichtsausdruck deines Fossas musste ich auf einmal plötzlich wieder an das Wiesel aus 'Als die Tiere den Wald verließen' denken^^ Ich bin leider mit diesen Serien und Büchern aufgewachsen und die sind zu gut hängen geblibeen, auch wenn ich vor manchen Büchern und Filmen Angst hatte^^; Wie bei Felida oder Watership Down^^;

Ich glaube, dass das bei etwa 60% aller Kinder und Teenager der 90er der Fall ist. Ich kann schon gar nicht mehr all die Leidensgenossen zählen, die genauso wie ich im zarten Alter von den üblichen Verdächtigen á la "Watership Down", "Felidae" oder "Die Hunde sind los" traumatisiert wurden. ;)

Und ja, natürlich, als die Tiere den Wald verließen. Der Klassiker schlechtin, eins meiner Toplieblingsserien (und -Bücher) aus der Kindheit.
Mein Fossa ist allerdings wahrscheinlich weniger albern als das Wiesel. D8 "Aaaaaahahahaa!"

Wobei ich eine der wenigen Mädchen waren die bei Misses Brisbi und das Geheimnis von Nimh immer Angst vor der Farmerskatze Dragon hatte^^; Mein Freundeskreis fanden die immer cool gezeichnet^^; Ich hatte einfach nur Albträume^^; Aber da bin ich zum Glück drüber weggekommen ^^ XD Aber die Erinnerungen an diese Dinge bleiben immer fest im Kopf^^

Alberner als das Wiesel geht wohl auch nicht^^ Auch wenn ich mich erinnern kann das sie damals echt hinterhältig sein konnte und sogar mit der Hauptstory der Serie eng verbunden war^^ Das Buch war um einiges schöner als die Serie^^ Nur leider nicht so witzig^^

Dragon war...echt over the top. XD Glich tatsächlich schon eher einem Drachen als einer Katze (und klang auch so 8D ), aber was übertriebene Katzen angeht, hatte Felidae meiner Meinung nach nochmal einen draufgelegt. Gott, wenn ich schon an Kong denke. Dat war keine Katze mehr, dat war ein deformiertes Monstrum auf Steroide.

Verstörende Gefühle bei Brisby bekam ich immer, wenn Nicodemus die Vorgeschichte der Nimhratten erzählte. Tierversuche, Veränderungen, plötzliche Intelligenz, Flucht - und vor allem die zahllosen Mäuse, die in den dunklen Schächten für immer verschwinden...die bloße Vorstellungskraft hatte da schon mehr als gesessen.

Bei den Tieren aus dem Thalerwald (bzw. in den Büchern Farthingwald) waren die Bücher ganz klar besser als die Serie, um Längen. Kannte die auch tatsächlich vorher :) (zumindest den Band, der sich um den Kühnen/Keck dreht).
