A Scandal in Bilbohemia By Roderick on November 13, 2012 4 You know the Hobbit movie? No, I mean the animated Hobbit movie. No, not that one. This one: Explanation here. So Dale looks like Prague. And Bilbo marries the princess and they rule Prague together. Wacky! Science Fiction
A new witticism can be crafted from this variant fantasy. A princess is worth a dozen dwarves.
Hoch hech! Endut!
I followed the links to animator Gene Deitch’s original post, and he seems a bit confused. He speaks of film rights bought from “the Tolkien estate lawyers” in 1964. But Tolkien was alive in 1964 (he died in 1973), and I doubt he had any lawyers at that time (though his publishers did).
Make that “the mostly not-animated Hobbit movie”!
