Cross Genre Dressing


I got the idea for the following from the "Get Fuzzy" comic strip of 3/29/06. Bucky, the Siamese cat is always trying to come up with an idea to become rich and famous.
....The plan du jour in this cartoon featured "cross genre combinations. Characters or titles in one genre are to be combined with one of a different genre.

The examples cited in the strip were:

Simon & Garfield
The Beatles Bailey
Dilbert & Sullivan
Marmaduke Ellington
Sly & The Family Circus
Sammy Hagar the Horrible

Who am I not to take up the challenge? Here are some of my feeble attempts to help Bucky:

Get Fuzzy Zeller
The Fresh Prince Valiant
The Raiders of Boner's Ark
Brenda Starr Wars
Kirstie Alley Oop
Kiss of the Spiderman
Hi and Lois Lane
Calvin and the Hobbit
Mutts and Jeff
Terry and the Pirates of Pinzance
Smokey Stover & The Bandit
Li'l Abner Doubleday
LIttle Orphan Annie Get Your Gun
Romancing the Flintsones
Gumby & Pokemon
Tazmanian Devil in Mrs. Jones
Superman of La Mancha
Space Ghost & Mrs. Muir
Magilla Gorillas of the Mist
The Beverly Hillbilly Bears
Porky Pig's Revenge
Krazy Kat Ballou
Charlie Chan & the Chocolate Factory
That's a few that came to mind. Do any pop into your heads?

Those are cute! It's too earlier for me to be creative. I'll try to think of something and come back later.

I'll hold you to it, Kat.

After a nice hot cup of coffee, the juices will flow, Dawn.

Rachael - Wiley Coyote Ugly is a good one.
