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!
