  • YouTube Tribute Music Video to Blue Characters (Including Several Disney Chars! :) )

    A fan made tribute to blue (and blue-wearing) characters from various properties, including a few of my own characters.

    I recently read "Eldest", the second book in Christopher Paolini's "Inheritance Cycle", which features a blue dragon named Saphira, and I absolutely love the character.

    I also remember someone on the "Making of Beauty and the Beast" TV special saying that Belle was the only character in the village who had the color blue on her (her dress), so as to emphasize how much she stood out. So the general idea was that these would be blue characters that somehow stood out from their society (Saphira being the only known dragon in Alagaesia, Gusto Gummi being an individualistic artist, Bloo having the unique arrangement with his creator Mac, etc.). This is why you don't see the Smurfs in here (they're all blue!).

    Accidentally forgotten was Gonzo from the Muppets, who would have fit this theme perfectly...(Oh, well...sorry, Gonzo!)

    There's also a theme of friendship, (Eragon and Saphira, Lilo and Stich, Mac and Bloo, etc.).

    The song "Who Could Be Blue?" was cut from the 1971 Stephen Sondheim musical "Follies". It would have been cast in a more ironic light in the show than it was in this video. It was replaced in the show by "You're Gonna Love Tommorow/Love Will See Us Through". This recording is from the 1998 "complete recording," with the cast from the Paper Mill Playhouse production. The singer is Michael Gruber.

    Please, no comments of "That character isn't blue!" Some of the characters are very light blue, and some of them are only wearing blue, but blue is featured promeniently on one character in every scene of this video.

    Actually, the Saphira from the movie version of "Eragon" (which I haven't seen) wasn't blue enough for my purposes, so I made her bluer. I read that the filmmakers decided to make her a more muted grayish color because larger creatures in nature tend to be more muted colors - despite the fact that she's a magical dragon, and her last name in the books is Brightscales.

    Note: This is a clearly labeled fan video. Anyone who believes that the companies which own these characters would have a problem with it is asked to inform the companies rather than post about it here .

    Of course, I couldn't resist including some of my own characters -

    Straightstripe the blue zebra-unicorn (listed as "Straight Stripe" on the credits, because the other way it put the "e" on the next line) and Y.C. the blue-trimmed white tiger from my graphic novel project "Camo"

    And Rumples the blue unicorn and Ballad Quill the blue-wearing gryphon (along with Sondrew Hayne the human riding on his back) from my fantasy novel project "Escapia".

    Characters from my own projects are copyright 2007 Brent M. Parker.

          One last bit of Eragon-related silliness:

          What if Eragon had been a Disney movie?





          Featuring:


          Mickey Rooney as Brom

          Helen Reddy as Arya

          Jim Dale as King Galbatorix

          and

          Shelley Winters as the "Queen of the Kull"
