For many years, I have kept my feelings on this topic to myself, lest I inadvertently cause trauma to another. However, a recent headline caught my eye and I knew that I was far from alone in my distaste of this foul breed. The producer of the Teletubbies was responsible for a recent movie release entitled "The Oogieloves in the Big Balloon Adventure". Over its first 3 full-days of release in 2160 theaters, the movie earned $448,000. That amounts to about $70 in ticket sales per theater per day, or less than 10 folks added up over all showings. At a cost of more than 60 million dollars to make and distribute, I sense we shan't be seeing any more movies featuring this sort of "puppetry" any time soon. Whew!
