Oh, yeah! I forgot about that silk. Another question: How did they get Lady Lightbug in that jar at the end, and why did they put her over the cars so everyone could see her trapped in the jar? :? :? :?

Was that a sort of prison sentence or something?

Well, they put her in a jar because it is like a captivity cell. You know how you put bugs in a jar to keep them from escaping? Well, same thing. In addition, they put Ladylight so everyone can see her because she povides light in the nightime under the bridge, get it?

In that case, I'd like to ask you a few more:

1) Why did Pixar want to make Mr. Incredible & Pals appear to be an old historical film?
2) Why did they make up the villain and use real heroes, as Frozone said in the commentary? Or was Lady Lightbug a real villain?
3) What is blue radioactivity, and how can radioactivity have a color?
4) How can Lady Lightbug be radioactive? Or her silk?
5) Lightbugs don't produce silk, do they? Or is it a stretch, like "mind-reading squirrels"?
6) Why didn't they show Frozone making the ice bridge?
7) How long did that ice bridge last (how long were they gone)?
8) How did they get the bridge back to the city, and back onto the rest of the bridge?
9) Is that city supposed to be Municiberg?
10) GLASSES?!?!?!? ON THE RABBIT?!?!?!?!?!?
11) If the carnival was abondoned, how did Mr. I get the roller coaster working again?
12) How did they get Lady Lightbug in the jar?
13) Should I skip this one?
14) How can evil be attracted to dark remote places? I thought evil involved people and money.
15) Am I asking too many questions?

Bwahahaha - So... many... questions...

Let me answer them all like so...

The cartoon was a spoof of the old Saturday morning cartoons that used to run even way back before our time. This one specifically spoofed an even more outdated type of cartoon that never caught on called "lipovision." These were all cheap, low-budget type films that had crummy animation, simple plots, and lots of story holes that kids were just supposed to not pick up on. The type of production they were mocking was pitiful and cheesy at best but Pixar's ability to mimic it spot on for parody was simply genius! =)

To answer a couple,

2) I guess they wanted to make up some bad guy. I doubt that Lady Lightbug was a real villain in the Incredibles world.

3) I don't know what color radioactivity is. All I know is that it is really powerful and dangerous.

4) I'm guessing Lady Lightbug was a mutant super villain.

More to come later.

Heh heh, totally welcome!

Now let's see.

5) Lightbug is probably short for lightning bug, or a more common name, Firefly. To my knowledge, I don't think they produce silk, let alone radioactive ones.

6) I don't know? :roll:

7) I think it probably lasted for a couple hours. They found out about the bridge at lets say about noon to afternoonish. They went to Lady Lightbug's pad when it started to get a little dark, and at nighttime, all was well.

A113-
All I have to say is that Pixar accomplished what they wanted, to make a cheesy spoof with lots of inconsistencies!

9) Yes, I beleive that it is Municiberg.

10) Well, the glasses make him look a little more cuddly.

12) Mr I and Frozone put her in there is the simplest answer for ya.

13) Skip what? :? The short? no, never skip the short. :P

14) Well, my guess is that dark remote places are supposed to look kinda scary. So scary, ordinary civilians wouldn't dare think of entering.

15) One can never ask to many questions. Questions mean you want your mind to grow and learn. (man was that stupid.)

Oh, thanks! (sorry, I didn't get the 12 one, either :lol: ) On 13, I was making fun of the people who think 13 is unlucky. :wink:

Here is something to think about. What would've Helen, Violet, and Dash think if they just so happen to come across the cartoon of Mr. I, Frozone, Skipperdoo, and LadyLightbug? What would they think?
