The Great Emelius Browne Design Now On RedBubble

As my regular readers know, I am a long time Disney fan. I grew up watching all the movies on VHS and we wore some of them so thin that the movies actually wobbled when we watched them! Bedknobs and Broomsticks was one that we loved to watch. As an homage to that great Disney classic I have created this Emelius Browne design for the RedBubble shop!

If you are familiar with the movie, you will remember that Emelius Browne loves to hawk his wears with a portable stand. This is a reproduction of the sign that hangs on his table! I love the fascination that Disney seemed to have with hucksters and snake oil salesmen. Don't forget DocTerminus in Pete's Dragon and The Apple Dumpling Gang! I suppose it was a fascination of a certain time, and the appeal of a semi-hero from unlikely beginnings. Or at least the reforming of a man. Disney was certainly the eternal optimist!

Here's a picture of David Tomlinson as Emelius Browne:

Redbubble is constatntly adding new products to its site! Now you can find these great studio pouches (excellent for travel anywhere Disney goes!) and skirts! Take a look at all the great new things available. Until next time, may all your days be filled with fairy dust!
