"PAPER AIR PAINS - PART 10" - New Newt and John Episode!
In all it's green glory!.. The worlds biggest Olive on a Toothpick!
When Newt originally talked about this back in PART 5, I wasn't entirely sure I'd ever show it. But the idea just sounded too cool not to use it. Well, cool as far as a road-side attraction goes.
Both the United States and Canada are famous for their Giant Roadside Attractions and over-sized novelties. It's all about attracting tourists and passer-by's to the small towns. Everything from giant Wooden Nickels, to a giant Muskoka Chair (wooden patio chair), to a Giant Moose can be found along Canadian highways. The idea of a giant Olive on a toothpick sounded possible... but, "Oh the Humanity!" if it comes crashing down!
This episode isn't really about the writing gags as it is the visuals... aside from the giant Olive in the last panel... I like Newt's "Anime Eyes" in panel 6. Something about his reaction needed this much over-expression. As though this is truly the greatest sight he has ever seen.
This episode is to set up the final showdown between our Heroes and the Military Jet! So, stay tuned for Excitement, Suspense and a Giant Garnish!.. Come back on Monday for the next episode!
