Life Could Not Better Be by Zimeta Life Could Not Better Be by Zimeta
For the couples contest going on at my sister's Musicals group, #TheBandWagon.

I decided to pay homage to a film we all adored as kids (and even now); The Court Jester (1956).

I bet a lot of you have seen this epic comedy classic on TV at some point and adored it. But, what a lot of you probably don't know is that for some unfathomable reason, this movie bombed when it first appeared in theaters, making barely half of what it took to produce it. :o

If you haven't seen the movie, here are some classic parts:

You'll Never Outfox the Fox - Song: [link]
The Maladjusted Jester - Song: [link] - (This is where the outfits in my drawing come from)
The Pellet with the Poison routine: [link]

...and many more scenes you need to watch yourself by renting/buying/pirating this movie!

The vessel with the pestle has the brew that is true! I love the art, and I love the movie.

I've never seen any fanart for the Court Jester on here before! Which is tragic since it's such a great film, there's been a ton of great old movies that never got any fame :(

I might be biased by the fact that I love Danny Kaye and love this movie, but I think this picture just might be the most awesome thing ever. I am ridiculously happy about the boarders with the cups in the corner and his tumbling friends, but the two figures are also have really cute expressions and colorful, well drawn clothes.

Aww, thanks!
I'm glad I decided to add in the cups. People seem to enjoy them. :D

I almost squealed with delight when I saw this. A dear friend of mine showed me this movie a couple of years ago, and I've adored it ever since. Danny Kaye was a GENIUS!!!

And so are you, for capturing a sweet moment between these two. :)

And I'm gonna see 'em all! ^0^

I love that you put the cups in the corners! I've loved this movie since I was a kid and I think this is a great homage to it!
