Trivia

As filming wrapped, the child cast members asked dialogue coach James Kemsley to draw a Ginger Meggs cartoon for them to give to the Latimer family as a thank-you present. The Latimers were so impressed with the cartoon that they gave Kemsley the job of writing and drawing the comic strip after Lloyd Piper died in 1984. See more »

Must've been something I ate ---
2 September 2004 | by (Silver Lake, CA) – See all my reviews

Having worked as a projectionist during an L.A. Film Market way back around 1982 (LA- the Tiffany on Sunset Strip), I had the thrill of showing this bit of Aussie weirdness one day. Yeah, there's quite not-so-subtle cultural differences, but who can tell what. Must've been something I ate, like mushrooms or some forbidden fruit, 'cause this oddity left me befuddled but amused by the intense (and I do mean intense) beyondo color palette employed. Quirky and surreal, this baby never made it onto the American market. Someone out there has to have seen this one, too, please tell me, anyone.... Strange but not terribly fascinating. Had the same experience with a 3-D wonder called "Rottweiller," which has somehow slipped under the radar and been on TV. If "Ginger" shows anywhere, watch this truly bizarre kids film unfold in all of its pre-Pee-Wee near Fellini-esque glory.
