Flåklypa Grand Prix

I found this review on the net...
 
5 out of 5 stars Puppet animation at its best, December 22, 2001
Reviewer:  A viewer (Grover Beach, CA USA)
The Pinchcliffe Grand Prix is a very memorable flick. The cast of characters is not to be believed. Theodore Rimspoke, Sonny Duckworth, Lambert, to name a few. My favorite is the drummer Desperados, a gorilla. Il Tempo Gigante (Rimspoke's car) is visually a real winner. Kind of reminds one of a genuine '31 Packard roadster complete with oilers. Imagine my surprise to find it for sale just today at AMAZON.COM. Guess I'll order a backup copy. I'll never forget Ronnie "Turnip" Anderson "the Swede". Oh yeah, the German "Heinrich Von Schnell" who drives an Abarth 2000.

Perhaps the most interesting character of all is Hamburly Diplanog the Pinchcliffe poet/bard with a mane of thick unruly hair.

May the government approve his application for a three month traveling scholarship.

Then there's Rudolph Goreslimy (Rimspokes' nemesis) who drives for Snake Oil and has a dirty tricks button on his dash. Merck Cassandra is Goreslimey's sidekick who operates the 'Dirty Tricks' button.

Shiekh Abdul Ben Bonanza supplies Rimspoke's money and oil/fuel for the race. And what a race it is.

Before this venture Rimspoke's crew built flagpoles for the Swiss Navy."

This is the car of Goreslimy, the Boomerang Rapido, built after the spitfire principle

Flåklypa Grand Prix

Have you ever seen the ONE great Norwegian movie, "Flåklypa Grand Prix" ?? It was based on the characters of Norwegian humorist/author Kjell Aukrust, and Ivo Caprino, a true mastermind with puppets, animated it... It was a major box office hit when it came out in the seventies and was translated to several other languages. This movie is part of the Norwegian peoples soul! ...but the best part about it is the fact that its based around what we like... highly tuned racing cars...! and the sound of these cars... it blows your mind... you got a good idea what to expect if you know what the BRM racing car sounded like...

The story basis is a inventor/ bicycle repairman and his two helpers, who decide to build a racing car and enter the Grand Prix....

I have found some clips from this movie the last couple of days... so bear with me :-)

This is the sheik who sponsores the car called "Il Tempo Gigante"

Race ready...

This year was going to be a slow year in Norway, people was reloading to hit the strip next year.... Mr. Baboon is not ready with his new project, Jøran had just blown up his SPG engine, Jeeracing had postpone the new ULTRA MEGA 2050 racing bug, my car is in pieces, Morten Åse's Ghia is still coming together...  TomR is (still) improving the Oval... Mags has countless projects almost ready... Kormi with the ASS UP BLOWN bug was concentrating on school this year...... just to name a few...

BUT!! Something happened....

Last weekend the whole Norwegian VW Scene re-ignited!!

Seeing Jøran running a 13.04 in his Ghia and Kalle and Baboon setting new personal records in the sunshine was too much...!! Now it seems like everyone has decided to get their act together and be ready to SCC this fall... I hope to see the BIG GUNS there...  don't you?

This fall will be spectacular...  and maybe Therese and the Fireflies chases the Baboon away, and shows up in the Cal Look starting grid...

Herlich oldenford... ish...

Have you ever been very happy for someone, I have felt like that since I got an SMS from Der Thündersodder crew last Saturday....  "been talking to RON for twenty minutes"... was the part of the SMS I recall... the rest is a blur...

In the pic: Mr Kimball, Mr Flemming, Mr Øystein "Screwdriver" "Thündersodder" "Splitman" Asphjell and last but not least Mr Ole Rune "Dean" "Lardal Kid" Moe...  pay close attention to the very limited "NORWEGIAN Empi misprint" T-shirt he is wearing...  real collectors stuff! If you ever see anyone in such a T shirt you know he's a DIE HARD from way back!
