It was recently the 63th anniversary of the Peanuts comic strip. We celebrated in our own way on a recent trip to St. Paul, MN. The city is the birthplace of Charles Schulz and to honor him and his memory Rice Park in downtown is populated with several of his beloved characters. Here are some pictures we took when we were there:
At the beginning of the short, Ollie is perusing the contact list on his phone:
You'll see that his contact list includes:
Dinah (Black Canary)
Diana (Wonder Woman)
and, of course, "Mort"
I believe that this is meant as a nod to Mort Weisinger who is credited as one of the original creators of Green Arrow. (Look for a mention of "Weisinger Street" on an upcoming episode of the CW's Arrow...probably.)
Once Ollie arrives at the airport you can see the arriving and departing flights:
You can see several mentions of Gotham City and Metropolis as well as:
Keystone City/Central City/Blue Valley (the Flash)
I am an independent documentary filmmaker. My work ranges from educational to goofy.
Past documentary projects I have worked on include "Comic Book Literacy", "Fast Food" (following the wild & wacky exploits of product mobiles like the Oscar Mayer Wienermobile & more!) and earth science educational documentaries like "Oklahoma Rocks!" and "RockHounds: The Movie."
