- Joe 2018
Womanizer Johnny Bravo's (Chris Boudreaux) has a job interview, nothing
big, just something in insurance so being on one's best behaviour is all

Cindy (Jessica Rae McClelland) is a really attractive woman he'd love to
date - and he's quite vocal about this ... so before long it's clear he
hasn't got a chance, neither with Cindy nor with the job - when mad
scientist Rick (John Atkins) and his grandson Morty (Nicholas Polley)
enter the scene from another dimension and reveal the whole set-up to be
nothing more than an under-budgeted fanfilm before disappearing into their
own timeline again. But the truth about her existence in a fanfilm hits
Cindy really hard - and she's got a gun ...

getting whatever makes whichever property special but adding his own touch
to it so as not to ape but expand whatever material it is - and there
might be no better example for this than this short that takes on not only
one but two animated series, gets the characters right, mixes them
properly, and tells a story full of surprises nevertheless. In other
words, a fanfilm exactly the way it ought to be ...
