Next Time on The Magic of Eyri (06.02.10): “Pirates!” – Our heroes have a run-in with the scourge of the Ralk Sea, Vanderawlt the pirate.
We get to know Alexander the Small a bit better in this episode. He is, of course, named after Alexander the Great, and a friend of mine named Alex (who wasn’t small, but very skinny). His crew, Julius the albatross and Hector the Penguin are named after Julius Caesar and Hector of Troy. I was partially inspired by an article I read once about the Nine Worthies.
With the audio versions of Julius and Hector, decided to try and do a “Bones and Spock” approach to the voices. We’ll see how it goes.
The joke behind the Pixie People surrounding Uncle Shameless and saying “Hi!” over and over, is a poke at Navi in the video game Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.
