Over the past few weeks, I have been listening to lots of music from the Sixties and Seventies. A particular favorite of mine is The Who's 1969 song "Pinball Wizard." I thought, "I'll be clever and make my own Pinball Wizard character." Then I Googled Pinball Wizard and discovered that had been done already (a lot of times---A LOT). With that Wizard in mind, I started thinking of other mythical type characters I could make into human characters. The other logical choices were a griffin, unicorn and a dragon.
I'm not exactly sure what it is that Griffith, Cornelia and Firewall do, but I think that it involves money, and collecting treasure, and being funny. Details, details...
Griffith (based on a griffin) is the main character here and is kind of a grouch. He is voiced by comedian Louis CK (in my mind). I don't know much about mysterious Cornelia (based on a unicorn) except that she sounds like a horse neighing when she giggles. Bold and brash Firewall (based on a dragon) needs a voice that is intimidating, cool and booming: so Keith David ("Goliath" in Disney's Gargoyles) would be perfect to play him.
I came up with a name, a logo and more characters for Griffith to interact with. Majestic Griffith could also be called Majestic Griffith: Middle Ages.
Firewall is the focal point of the world of Majestic Griffith and he is definitely inspired by Benedict Cumberbatch's Smaug from The Hobbit (as well as Disney's Scrooge McDuck).
Griffith has a lot of conflict in his life, including a cocky, pelvis-swiveling rival named Gus (a character inspired by a Pegasus and Conrad Birdie from Bye Bye Birdie).
Mannox is a bullish guy with a personality the size of Texas. He is based on a Minotaur.
While I'm coming up with stuff for these characters to do, I thought I'd push them into the small world of the Internet and maybe Louis CK would see this and be interested in being Griffith. You just never know!
