My Christmas present to myself is drawing this super self-indulgent drawing of my versions of the Jekyll and Hyde characters commenting on the musical Jekyll and Hyde. Except for Frankenstein, who … got a much more fun adaptation.
So Jekyll and Hyde has some derpy lyrics and I always imagine my characters making sassy commentary:
How do you tell evil from good?
Jekyll: Well, depending on the context—
Evil does well, good—not so good!
Jekyll: Well, that is one interpretation, isn’t it?
Hyde: DID YOU JUST RHYME ‘GOOD’ WITH ‘GOOD’?
Jekyll: It would appear that my character is not to be tempted by intellectual stimulation in this scene, hmm?
Hyde: AND IT’S WELL. GOOD DOES NOT DO SO WELL.
Jekyll: True, but … I believe that could be excused as a colloquialism.
Hyde: *sputters* Well maybe but— THAT’S JUST BAD SONG WRITING. YOU WROTE A BAD SONG, PETEY.
I also have a huge rant about the Jekyll and Hyde story structure here.
