Hey guys. Sorry to bother you. I know most of you are probably glued on your televisions, waiting for something to come on that’s not politics-based. Well, if you need a break, I need your help.
I have a project in the works focusing on Sherlock, specifically targeting the fact that Sherlock Holmes is totes Asperger’s. However, this is a big project, and I need a side project to keep me busy.
For some reason, I was thinking about doing a piece on the problems of the “unspoken” or “Third-tier” characters.
The reason I thought about this is pretty interesting. I was watching Goof Troop, and it dawned on me that Goofy is the only one of Disney’s original characters that has no wife or girlfriend. This is weird because he also has a son, Max.
After research, I found that Goofy did have a wife in the 1950s. However, once Goof Troop came around, the wife was non-existent. It has been speculated that Goofy is goofy as a defense mechanism resulting from the loss of his wife, whether it be divorce or the accepted concept that she died. That’s heavy stuff.
So, are there any third-tier characters that have really insane background stories? Stories that fuel who they are and make their character all the more three-dimensional.
If there is no interest in this topic, I will just focus on Neville Longbottom and move on. But if there is some interest, let me know.
