::Next up is a rough-looking mouse with a grizzled face, big
moustache and black hat. He is Cheddarhead Charlie, Monty’s dad and dressed in
his regular Aussie gear. Cheddarhead gets down on the floor like he’s going to
do some one-handed push-ups, a la Jack Palance, then
gets back up and heads for the podium::
Cheddarhead: Cheddarhead Charlie’s me name, and adventure’s me game! Where’d that big owl lady go off to? I wanna tangle with that overgrown buzzard!
::Cheddarhead looks all around, but can’t see Strigidæ, so he continues::
Cheddarhead: All right, me buckos, I’m here ta announce the winner fer the Best Original Male Character. A right shame I couldn’t have been an original character, because with me brash good looks and the way I kin win a fight, it would’ve been a cinch. But, that’s the breaks. So, let’s see who we got ta pick from:
Clark Jent, by The J.A.M., from “Death of a Comedian”
Dr. Qandlier, by The J.A.M., from “Death of a Comedian”
The Batmunk, by The J.A.M., from “I Dream of the New Ranger”
::Cheddarhead looks up from the card to the audience::
Cheddarhead: I’m sensing a trend here…
::The audience laughs heartily, as shouts of “Mexico!” went up and Cheddarhead opens the envelope::
Cheddarhead: J.A.M., get yourself and that Batmunk up here!
::This time, the band plays the theme of “Wuzzles”, as the jaguar bounds down again::
¡¡¡MEXICO!!! ¡¡¡MEXICO!!! ¡¡¡MEXICO!!! ¡¡¡MEXICO!!! ¡¡¡MEXICO!!!
::Strangely enough, the Batmunk joins him and is also bouncing down to the stage with him, *and* he was chanting with him as well. At the podium, they calm down, and the onça lifts the Batmunk so he can speak into the microphone::
Batmunk: Wow, and to think I haven't actually been born yet!!
::The audience laughs at the statement, and his cute voice::
Batmunk: Boy, I loved being the size of Godzilla and crushing all those buildings!! And it was really cool of you to first make me talk like Darth Vader, Mr. J.A.M.!
J.A.M.: Hey, you were 100 metres tall. Do you think it would have been credible if you had talked like *Bink*?"
Batmunk: Ha ha, very funny!
::The jaguar turns to the audience and continues::
J.A.M.: Heh, I guess we won this award paws down? Weren't there other nominees here?
::Both looked around, but saw no one else::
Batmunk: So much for Clark Jent and Dr. Qandlier. Looks like we won with a clean sweep.
J.A.M.: True. I guess the story *everyone's afraid to
comment on* finally got some recognition!! I'd like to thank Jack Hannah and
Bruce Talkington for creating Dale and Foxglove, and
Ken Koonce and David Wiemers
for creating the Wuzzles, because they all came
together for my inspiration to create the Batmunk
::The Batmunk looks questioningly at The J.A.M.::
Batmunk: Say, should we tell them my name, finally?
::The jaguar rubs his chin, thinking about it::
J.A.M.: Nah, not yet.
::The audience laughs::
J.A.M.: I'd also like to thank James Earl Jones for providing the inspiration for the voice in the giant Batmunk, and to Richard Beals for providing the *present* voice, *and* for voicing a character I *so* much liked a long while back: Scat of Biskitt Island.
::Then, for some reason, his voice turned stoic and began repeating himself::
J.A.M.: Muy bien,
muchas gracias amigos, estamos
muy agradecidos-y muy agradecidos-y muy
agradecidos-y *muy* agradecidos-y *muy* agradecidos-y *muy* agradecidos-
J.A.M.: Tu cállate, Chino. -y *muy* agradecidos-y *muy* agradecidos-
::The spotlight on them faded away, and some thought they heard the Batmunk shout, "Sodas!!" but finally, the two ended their Mexican inside joke::
J.A.M.: ¡¡¡MEXICO!!! ¡¡¡MEXICO!!! ¡¡¡MEXICO!!! ¡¡¡MEXICO!!! ¡¡¡MEXICO.!!!
::Waving his broom and flag, the jaguar clears the stage with his award under his arm, along with the Batmunk, who flies above him. Cheddarhead makes a few practice punches in the air, then heads out. The announcer comes back on over the P.A. system::
Dr. Batorious: When we return, we’ll have the remaining awards in the International categories, including Best Drama, Best Author, and the award for Outstanding Achievement. We’ll be right back…
