Alan J. Shalleck, co-author of Curious George, found dead.
16 years ago
'Collaborator', not co-author. Sorry.
Gosh what a horrible story. I was expecting more of a "asleep in his armchair holding a Curious George soft toy" kindda thing.
I come to this site for happy news. This is not happy news.
*points bernockle to
I feel much better now.
what a bizarre and sad tale :(
Ah, Bernockle, tomorrow's headlines: Logging for rare woods set to begin in remote Indonesian rainforest Bush says clubbing enchidnas only way to prevent terrorism
for the questions from now on?
...cuz, you know, no more
Where do echidnas go clubbing anyway? And didn't Bob Dole have some problem with rare woods?
Ok I'll quit now.
I love enchilladas.
What's up with the trash bags?
tennenho was curious.
in a trailer park...
What? Too soon?
Armchair Holmes here. I wonder if the folded rug underneath means the murderer was going to drag the body somewhere -- to the car? -- in order to hide it. They couldn't move the body as easily as expected so covered it in trashbags and ran. I hope very sincerely that those bags are covered in fingerprints that are on file.
Dear lord this is depressing.
Yes, Watson, indeed. The whole situation is very ...curious.
Man in yellow hat spotted fleeing scene.
He seems like a person genuinely committed to getting kids excited about reading.
Can I be an armchair Mrs. Hudson? Of course, I couldn't bring you tea and kippers from my armchair, but I coud send out.
Very well, Mrs. Hudson.
Two charged in Shalleck's death.
I am curious no longer. Thanks Capt.
Shalleck created more than 100 five-minute animated episodes of Curious George for the Disney channel, working with Rey, who wrote the original books with her husband. The project made him neither well-off nor well-known and he did minimum wage jobs while living mostly off his Social Security...
