It is part of these characters to Harry Potter that we loved to hate. J. K. Rowling (author of the books of the saga) took the example of his teacher of chemistry to invent Severus. Physically everything is there, the veuch, teeth…More funny : the teacher in question had absolutely nothing burnt until the day that his students have remarked on the resemblance. A trick to put you in joy, that’s for sure.

And a rare thing, it is first born in the cartoon “Batman” before being picked up by DC for his comics. But if today, you can’t help but think of the hot Margot Robbie at the simple mention of Harley, at the time, Paul Dini and Bruce Timm, creators of the cartoon, have imagined by taking as a model the actress Arleen Sorkin, a friend of Paul Dini. “He was at home one day, and watched the series ‘days and lives’. In this episode, I had a scene where I was having a dream in which I was dressed as a harlequin. He said it had inspired them to Harley.

Even if the Yanks have certainly made the connection, for us, Gauls, it was more complicated. So, do not hesitate to tell me “thank you”.

In 1967 came out the Jungle Book remains today one of the emblematic works of Disney. At the same time the Beatles were at the height of their peak. The quartet should thus do the voices of the vultures in the film and, among others, to sing“That’s what friends are for”. Magic, non ? Except that John Lennon was denied at the last minute. The sparrows are still a tad guarded the appearance of the band from Liverpool…
