Mario & Fafa: The Stars of Glove and Boots
Let’s take a look back for a second.
A look back to October 15, 1951, I Love Lucy first hit the airwaves. It wasn’t a thought provoking or terribly intelligent show, although it did still have superior comedy writing. These writers were not saddled with the social issues of the day, worries of making the show believable or realistic. They had one simple goal each and every single week; to entertain and to make people laugh.
Those writers did exactly that and then some.
The lines of the idea behind just making people laugh seem to have gotten blurred by the downward spiral of creativity. Instead audiences are subjected to overly crude behavior on the screen; laughs have now been substituted by disgust and who’ll outdo who in shock value.
Sometimes too much disgust can make one long for the good “old-fashioned” slapstick comedy that just simply makes people laugh while not necessarily grossing them out at the same time.
Look no more.
If you don’t know them, then get to know them. See these guys right below?
Yeah, them. They’re sure to make you laugh up a storm.
Mario, Fafa the groundhog and Gorilla are the puppet stars of Glove and Boots, a popular video blog series.
Bento Box Entertainment, which is currently behind the online production and distribution of Glove and Boots, is in the process of developing a primetime television series about the up and coming puppets. Currently, Bento Box is the force behind the Fox animated series Bob’s Burgers.
The creators of Glove and Boots, Damien Eckhardt-Jacobi and Vincent Bova, recently won the Best #VideoBlogger award at 4th annual Shorty Awards.
Three exceptionally funny characters will be making folks laugh in living rooms everywhere, hopefully sooner than later. Here’s an introduction the stars of Glove and Boots.
Meet Mario; don’t get this guy started, he is very easily excitable. He’ll change his mind in a New York second. He’ll always push the button marked “Do not push this button.”
Meet Fafa; he is one chill and laid back groundhog who is an aspiring artist.
Meet Gorilla; oddly and unintentionally, he is quite reminiscent of the Native-American character on One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest. He is a very lovable character and quite the favorite.
Damien and Vincent converse about the wildly successful video blog series and do what they do best… Make each other as well as other people laugh.Continued on the next page
