Where there's a whip, there's a way!

Min and i tortured ourselves by watching all three Lord of the Ring cartoons this weekend. And actually it spilled into Monday because Min could not take all the singing in Return of the King and needed to take a break.

we should keep the dvds for archival purposes, but let's never watch these again. EVER.

Hmmm, "Where There's a Whip There's a Way" was also a Faster Pussycat song from the late 80s...but that one was about bondage. Actually, with the whip cracks in the LOTR song, it sounds more like Judas Priest!

3? I only know of 2. But hey, it could have been worse. You could have watched the Peter Jackson trilogy (which should be titled the Neverending story)

Seriously, I liked this song because it gave a bit of character to the orcs. They don't want to fight but are forced by their leaders. Much more interesting than the mindless video game badguy orcs in the Jackson movies.

Well, we're counting the Hobbit. So there's The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings (which really covers Fellowship and Two Towers) and Return of the King.

Hobbit and Return were by Rankin-Bass. Lord of the Rings was by a separate group but Rankin-Bass made a (half-hearted) effort to pick up where LotR ended.

Ok, I didn't know there was a "middle" episode. I only know the hobbit and return.
