Fazed Cookies

I suspect you’re not keeping up with comments on posts from a year and a half ago, but let me share a recent one that was interesting: responding to my rundown of commercial break #4 in the MTV 1988 countdown, “CheezNapkin” informs us that the great animated spot featuring a scientist getting the MTV logo carved into his red hair was directed by none other than Henry Selick! A little sleuthing reveals that this is indeed true; it was called “Haircut M” and it won a Clio Award. (Selick, of course, went on to direct The Nightmare Before Christmas, James and the Giant Peach, and Coraline.) I don’t know for sure, but I’m guessing that the Marie Antoinette bumper in the same commercial break was also by Selick. Thanks, “CheezNapkin”!

    No problem, man! I remember reading about it somewhere on the internet a long time ago. Needless to say, I was pretty surprised.
