The CBC airedÂ a video depicting beloved Rusty and Jerome (characters from Canada’s own Friendly Giant Series) as forgotten, retirement home-dwelling, drinking, smoking, and over-sexed has-beens. The Homme Family immediately removed the characters from the CBC museum. Richard Homme, the son of the late Bob Homme (aka The Friendly Giant) stating that trust and contract were violated because approval to use the puppets was never sought. He also insists that had permission been sought, they would have never given the CBC the green light.
I personal thought it was hillarious, but agree on the Hommes stand on the issue.
Check it out for yourself, please be aware that it is for adult audiences only.
Thanks Jerrold forÂ this notice :-)Â
