It was announced yesterday that Alex Zamm, the director of Carrot Top’s “Chairman of the Board” as well as “Dr. Doolittle: Million Dollar Mutts,” is developing a live action movie adapatation of the 1970s saturday morning cartoon “Hong Kong Phooey” (pictured at left). The title character was a talking dog, voiced by Scatman Crothers, who transforms from a janitor into a bungling kung fu super hero.
I liked this cartoon as a child. But how can this combination fail to produce a movie that is anything other than scat, man.
Don't believe me? Remember the live action "Scooby Doo" film that was released (to terrible reviews) in 2002? The trailer for that movie is embedded below. Can you even make it through the full 2 minutes?
