George and Neal and the Masters of the Universe

Views: 155/3880
Added: 02/28/2009

In 1981, after the character Orko appeared in the cartoon He-Man, in a move that confused most of the world, Neal sued the cartoon company for infringement of likeness rights. Neal was inspired by George's successful suit a few years earlier for the infringement of likeness rights for the character Skeletor. Both Neal and George are currently receiving royalties on all sales of all the original action figures. So if you sell any of yours at a garage sale, resale shop, craigslist, eBay, etc. please be sure to send us our fair share of the profits.

Super George Brothers

Views: 110/1815

In 1981, George created a ground-breaking side-scrolling video game, Super George Brothers. The game chronicled George's love of eating weird mushrooms he would find on the ground, running around without a shirt, and his penchant for jumping on turtles (George had issues back then, which he has since resolved. However, he still goes into nervous convulsions when he sees a turtle poking its head out.)

 

Super George Brothers - George's macho style was sadly covered in clothes in the Nintendo remake.

Midwest University of Trickery in Elocution

Views: 234/3275

In 1981 George founded the Midwest University of Trickery in Elocution (M.U.T.E.); the most prestigious school of ventriloquism, and the only one to offer a full range of degrees and certifications, including the esteemed Pu.D. (Doctorate of Puppetry). In response Neal founded the Disparate Union of Mumbling Mannequins and Inanimate Entertainment Sycophants (D.U.M.M.I.E.S.) to fight for the rights of puppets everywhere. This short lived organization dissolved quickly when none of the members would speak up for themselves.

On the plus side, before the union was dissolved, Neal was able to buy a used 1975 Trabant from the guy at the bottom left in the hat with the black band.
