Guest Post – Favourites on the Children’s Channel: The Crimebusters of the Sea I

A Guest Post by The Psychedelic Scrapbookin’ Bubblegum Mama

Sharky & George (Sharky et Georges in French)


Broadcast every morning at 7am on the Childrens Channel, this became a firm childhood favourite. This was the reason to wake up in the morning, and then wait patiently until the school day was over to watch it over teatime with the family. I missed it when it took breaks in between airings.

This show, originally French but broadcast in Canada and many European countries, followed the adventures of two detectives, a pink fat shark with a big round nose and his associate, a small blue and yellow fish-maybe a tropical fish, similar to Flounder? This show wasn’t always entirely accurate in its depiction of fish, but I loved that pink fat shark either way – and still do. His antics and his short temper at times made him all the more lovable. ❤  Each episode was them fighting crime in the underwater city of Seacago, where they would be hot on the ‘tails’ of villains such as the 3 thugs (one being a piranha, the other being eel-oid and the third unidentified); a dictator lobster who spoke with a German accent (yes really); or trying to stop evil mad scientist Dr Jelly, who was obsessed with taking over the [underwater] world. In between they would enjoy trips to the circus or Submarinia, which had a whole Arabian nights theme, complete with sultan, Princess and evil adviser.

Like I said, this became a firm favourite for me and my brother, but unfortunately the number of people who knew about it at school was in the minority, with only my brother’s BFF and one of my friends from the class below me. I believe the reason was that it wasn’t perhaps so well known here as in Canada or other European countries, and the fact that at that time it could only be viewed on the children’s channel (a cable channel) which not everyone was in possession of. Later, it was moved to channel 4. I remember when I showed my classmates pictures of it, we had this whole argument over whether Dr Jelly was a Jellyfish or an octopus- my mum, brother and friend a few classes below being the only ones who knew he was a jelly fish (how does someone with the name Jelly sound anything other than a jellyfish though?) Something else, fan tributes. Yes, even back then I would make up my own AUs which revolved around my favourite characters, where I would sometimes make my own crossovers, in addition to throwing in a few ocs (though these were never drawn/written down, they were all in my head.) So i would be skipping around the school playground, while my mind worked over time to create stories of Sharky and George being joined by Huey, Louie, Dewey and Webby from Ducktales, plus my own fish oc Max and his sister and younger brother. The very first origins of my fanart, fics and AUs- even though I wasn’t aware of doing them.

The last episode of Sharky & George had them performing a singing number with all the other characters, which made me sad. But then, it is a French cartoon, meaning that not all the episodes were broadcast in the UK because looking at the episode list in French, there were more episodes after that. Not to mention, their adventures carry on in my AU, I’m fact…..the new adventures of Shark and George anyone?


Fallout OC

I’ve been working on making a character that fits into the Fallout Universe lately. For a couple of reasons. I’ve been playing through Fallout 4 with my husband recently.

We originally picked the game up around it’s release date, but something then didn’t click with us. I’m not sure what exactly, but I don’t think we found the construction aspect to the game right for us back then. But I think we we’re playing Minecraft at the time and wanted to make things pretty; which Fallout really isn’t.

Since we’ve not been playing Minecraft and we know what to expect this time around we have been a lot less picky with the construction side of things.

During the course of playing and seeing a couple of online friends own Fallout OC’s for the past few years, I decided to take the plunge and make one for myself to enjoy.



When making an OC for a game in which you can create your the main character to your liking, I think people tend to use the main character as their OC. I didn’t want to do this, because they already have a set back story. So. I created Simon. A narcotic/Jet addicted saxophone player (with no sax) so he’s had to turn to the wastelands to feed his habit, as I think this idea out of the ones I had, has the most scope for long term character development.
So, yeah.
Have a Simon~
I’ll get a full body picture of him done soon.
For his outfit, I am thinking hipster style, waistcoat, rolled up shirt sleeves, converse style shoes and jeans. Purely because it has no practical use in the commonwealth and I think Simon would have sold everything useful already – like his Saxophone, which I imagine a part of him is really trying to get back or something? I don’t know yet.

It’s just nice to have a character I’d like to develop and play with some more.

Drills head
*remember to update, remember to update, remember to update*

Jeez, one of these days it’ll go in!

So, on the whole Fangirly front, I might be back in action again? I don’t know.
I’ve been drawing a series of ‘First Date’ pictures with Jenn, my fursona. I’ve been active on dA again and seen that most of my friends on there have a canon x oc pairing. So they have characters in relationship with characters from various media/fandoms (Resident Evil, Casper, Mortal Kombat, Fallout, etc.) And, I am just playing in my own settings; which I love, but it’d also be fun to play away sometime too.

So, I hooked Jenn up with a couple of guys~


Some of the characters don’t translate well to my style of drawing. Like Captain Barnacles from Octonauts – who looks like he is closely related to Pedobear when I draw him.

I’ve also written some date report cards up for Jenns thoughts on her dates as well, which I’ll share in individual posts (and schedule them) in a little while.

I just wanted to share these with everyone, seeing as my last update was a while ago again. My bad.


I am having a bit of a proud moment over here. If you do an image search for “Captain Rhodes” you find a picture of my Original Character Kiz and Rhodes (Day of the Dead) before you find anything of Warmachine. I don’t know why, but this makes me feel rather happy!

Rhodes has been a part of my life for the longest ever time now, and he’s always haunted a part of Kiz’ life, regardless of whomever she is with. He’s there, lurking in the background; alive or dead. He is that much of a jerk to her.
What I like about the two of them is that they don’t have a conventional relationship. While I could draw them all lovey-dovey. (It’s not impossible) I just don’t see it as them. Not really. There is too much of a power struggle and abuse in their relationship and Rhodes just refuses to ask nicely for anything; we can see this with Sarah in Day of the Dead, never once does he ever use her name, always calls her ‘woman’ or ‘lady’ and I never once thought that he would ever treat Kiz any differently. Kiz just doesn’t have endless strength to keep denying him – it’s the epitome of a love/hate relationship.

I don’t know, I guess that I have had the two of them in my head for so long that it feels really strange to watch Day of the Dead and Kiz isn’t in it!

The picture in question


Hi gang

It feels like it’s been a long time again. Which is silly because a lot has been going on in my fangirly world as of late.

I have been rekindled with my passion for Kiz and Rhodes which feels wonderful as it has been a long time since I did anything with them. It has helped this time around as I have had a lot of support from outside sources. I’ve had people drawing them up for me which is something that I really, really enjoy. With any of my characters not just them I hasten to add.

So these past few weeks have been a wonderful treat when it comes to Kiz and Rhodes. And I would like to share that with you~

Various amazing pieces by Shakahnna


And these by Horrorlandcop74

I have said it many times in the past, it’s always really nice to be supported when you do something, and for me Kiz and Rhodes is no exception. Especially seeing as their relationship is less than conventional. I’ve also rekindles my friendship with Shakahnna lately, which has been wonderful. I mean, we’ve always been there together, but lately things have been a bit more involved. I’ve drawn for her more and visa-versa which has been really nice.

On top of that I met Horrorlandcop74, and you know something. These two have really helped me overcome the concerns I have been having with online friendships. Maybe not everyone on the net is all that bad after all?

In other news, it seems the US has finally approves same sex marriages regardless of state. Well done America!

I have more to report on the fangirlings, but don’t want to overload my post, so until next time~

Always nice

I have said time and time again. I love it when friends and family support my fangirlings.

So, much to my delight, my friend Nicki drew me a picture for Valentines day. Of naked Alistair and it looks absolutely lush!

On top of that my bestest-best-best-sister-friend has been writing me some Alistair & Zindrafel cutesy stuff. Squeee.

I also put my writing drabble on (Link is on the side bar) As I had that mood I spoke of in my last post.

My Muse has been working overtime as of late.

I really enjoy having him here. I got the second instalment of Tears and Rain written today which I am rather happy about.
I also got a contest entry for the delightful Shakahnna started today, which is good. Been meaning to work on it for a while now.

I need to get this blog back on track though. I am certain I have my fangirling past list here somewhere, so hopefully I’ll get a decent post put up soon, not just the random updates of my creativity.
