TV Moment of the Week for this week: A superhero, oven-mitted Conan O’Brien
About a month ago on Conan, O’Brien visited Bruce Timm of Warner Brothers Animation and talked to him about creating a superhero based on O’Brien himself. Following Conan’s instruction (give him an oven mitt, loafers, and garter socks that old men wear!), Timm sketched out a quick version of Conan’s altered-ego, The Flaming C. This Monday we got to see The Flaming C again, in all his animated glory, delivering a stern lecture to a group of young superheros.
They seem to take it in stride, though if I were in their place, I think I would have been distracted by the constantly steaming oven mitt, or maybe the fishnet stockings.
