One of the greatest honor we ever could receive ... The amazing Dom Carola has done the honor of creating this caricature of us ( Les & Lavalle) as couple of annoying seagulls who heckle guests at Crackerland. Lester & Lee our winged doubles are probably less annoying than the real guys to Dom, but we are forever grateful of the guidance he has shown throughout our time creating
Our first merchandise for Crackerland arrived today! We plan to pass out at our presentation during the Savannah International Animation Festival next week. Be one of the first to get the soon to be rare collectible item :)... featuring our trio of nitwit stars!
