This is actually a one off so far – the only film with Arthur Pettycommon in. I have had requests to develop this character and I’m sure that will happen in due course.
The song “Somewhere over the rainbow” of course comes from the Wizard of Oz film – or at least that’s what made it famous. The film is also famous for transitioning between a black and white opening and colour, and that’s also being spoofed with the colour changes here in this film. Had I had the technology then that I do not, I could have even superimposed a whirlwind onto it!

Dear V.D. Huliganov, Moy Drooog,
Great News! Jimmy and the Pink Diamond is being published in English. Finally made it. Will be distributed by Bertram’s in England. Feverishly correcting the proofs with the editor. I should come out in a month or maybe sooner. You know that I love the way you read it the first time…is there any way you could bundle it in numerical order for easy access to a new reader? I would have written earlier but was having trouble accessing your site. My fault, though. Hope you and the family are flourishing.
There is a playlist on YT, but what I will do is put them on here in order in a special page.
