PIERRE BERNARD'S RECLINER OF RAGE UPDATEYup, as I predicted, the clip of last night's installment of "Pierre Bernard's Recliner of Rage" is indeed available online somewhere, over at ASFdotcom.net.
So, here's a transcription to boost my already spiking Google hitcount.
SINGER: Pierre Bernard's Recliner of Rage.
CONAN: Alright... ah... Hey there, Pierre, are you comfortable and angry?
PIERRE: (Reclining) Comfortable and furious, Conan.
CONAN: Okay, then... aaa... (weird cough/laugh sound)... oh God! Then you just go ahead, Pierre, and you speak for America.
PIERRE: Okay, here goes.
(Pulls himself up.)
I'm a huge fan of animation, especially Japanese anime, so it goes without saying that I love a lot of anime shows appearing nightly on the Cartoon Network. There's Witch Hunter, sort of like an animated X-Files, Big O, the Batman of giant Japanese robots, and one of my favorite shows, Cowboy Bebop, about two space bounty hunters, Spike and Jet*, who team up with a woman named Faye and a computer whiz-kid named Ed. One of my favorite episodes was when Spike met a frog that told him he was on the staircase to Heaven, and each episode has jazz music** mixed into it that helps calm my nerves before I go to sleep.
So you can imagine my annoyance when I turned on the Cartoon Network a couple of nights ago and found the show had been replaced. A new show called Case Closed... this show is poorly-drawn and features music that is completely inappropriate for my pre-sleep wind-down.
Besides, if they needed a replacement for Cowboy Bebop, there are so many better shows to choose from, like Sakura Diaries, Amazing Nurse Nanako, or, my personal favorite, Bubblegum Crisis, about futuristic policemen who masquerade as machines.
(Returns recliner to upright, locked position and points towards camera)
Bottom line, America, the Cartoon Network should get rid of Case Closed, replace it with one of the shows I mentioned or bring back Cowboy Bebop with his nerve-calming jazz music!
(Laughter, cheering, and applause.)
CONAN: (Clapping) Thank you, aaah... thank you very much, Pierre. I'm... I'm sure there are at least two or three other Cowboy Bebop fans out there who know exactly what you're talking about.
(More whooping and applause.)
PIERRE: Hang in there, amigos.

* It sounds like he's saying "Jed".
** He fumbled the word "music" initially, so it sounds like he's saying "myu-music".
