Werner Herzog Narrates Mike Mulligan, Curious George

Recommended Videos




Just… just gather up your inner child and let it play in the other room for a moment.

Are they gone?  Ok.  Then it might be safe for you to watch “Werner Herzog Reads Mike Mulligan And His Steam Shovel.”

The German auteur (not actually the German auteur) lends his unique interpretation of Western society and modern existence to the colorful children’s story, and we were uncomfortably surprised at how well they intersect.

If Mike and Mary Anne were not a fixture of your childhood, we don’t know, maybe you were raised by gerbils or something, RyanIverson has also made Werner Herzog Reads Curious George.

Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
