Before we begin this tale, a word: our exposure to animated sex is mostly limited to Ralph Bakshi, Japanese anime, and a picture some guy showed us once that had Aladdin and Jasmine doing things that Aladdin and Jasmine should simply never be doing. It was with this thin resume, then, that Defamer ambled into UCB last night for what was supposed to be a Halloween edition of the the theater's "Comedy Death Ray" show but that unexpectedly provided a sneak peek at the first footage ever shown of Rob Zombie's upcoming, decidedly R-rated animated film, The Haunted World of El Superbeasto. Were you ever curious what a nude cartoon version of Rosario Dawson might look like, fighting? Then read on, pervs (and get ready for some NSFW animated action)!
The El Superbeasto project (not be confused with this upcoming Rob Zombie film) began in 2006, and though it's still in production, comedians Chris Hardwick and Mike Phirman unveiled the exclusive first footage shown anywhere last night. Way to go with the film nerd exclusives, UCB! Hardwick and Phirman (under their comic nom de guerre Hard & Phirm) have recorded songs for the movie, so Zombie sent them rough footage of two sequences to show the audience. In the first, buxom blonde Suzi-X (voiced by Sheri Moon Zombie) battles a rampaging horde of zombie Nazis due to the fact that is a Rob Zombie film. There's plenty of blood, gore, and cleavage, but the real R-rated stuff was saved for the second sequence. That's when Rosario Dawson shows up as the aggressive Velvet Von Black and, after taunting Suzi-X with a series of "broke-down biyatch" comments, leaps after the blonde, engaging in a knock-down, drag-out, eventually topless catfight. As the Hard & Phirm song on the soundtrack reassured the audience that "it's OK to masturbate to cartoons," Zombie provided helpful close-ups of bare T&A, as well as a memorable moment where we're pretty sure a breast-wielding Velvet poked Suzi-X in the eye with her enormous nipple.
Other fun facts: Paul Giamatti voices villain Dr. Satan, Sid Haig reprises his character Captain Spaulding (a Zombie regular), and the cast also includes Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! vixen Tura Santana. Thank you, Rob Zombie; it's good to know that if Wall-E falls short on its quest for Oscar gold, we now have another animated contender.
