Once inside, Vincent and Victoria are sent on an adventure culminating in a spectacular dance finale featuring an animated Michael Jackson.”

The special was created and produced by Optimum Productions, with animation production by Hammerhead. John Branca and John McClain, co-executors of the Estate of Michael Jackson, serve as executive producers. Daniel Chuba is the producer and Mark A.Z. Dippé is the director.

    Celebrating a Paedo? Well done!

    • Noel Valencia

      your welcome

      To be fair Michael was never convicted unlike the director of Jeepers Creepers 3.

      • Saturn

        Indeed, and what honest person would accept the money instead of making sure the accused is prosecuted so they cannot harm anyone else?

  • Meisha’s Taint

    The animation looks like shit. Talked me right out of it.

    Well, this is Bloody Disgusting now. Where they can be as hypocritical as they wanna be. They stop reporting on Salva’s films, but will continue to cover Polanski and M. Jackson. Haha

    • Saturn

      Nothing was ever proven about Jackson (and many believe he was targeted due to certain comments made about a certain group…) – whereas Salva is definitely guilty as charged – as he was found to have child pornography alongside his charge of child rape.
      I do agree about Polanski though – he shouldn’t be given the time of day either.

      Now, if evidence comes to light that shows Jackson was guilty of child abuse? Then his material should stop being played and the hero worship can end.
      Until then – it’s innocent until proven guilty.
      And no – I’m not a fan of the guys music – but I really hope that with all the great charity work he did he really is innocent.
      But, over here in the UK we had a guy called Jimmy Saville who was revered for all the great work he did for charity – and then after he died the truth came out about what a monster he really was.

        Saturn, the way I see it, if you’re truly innocent, then he wouldn’t have had to pay millions and millions of dollars to keep people quiet. That alone made him guilty in my opinion. If you’re innocent, go to court and prove it. Hollywood is not all innocent, just because something isn’t proven, doesn’t mean it’s not happening. Money can buy anything!

          They found a bunch of child pornography a few years ago at his old place. Including a fucked up shrine to Jonbonet Ramsey and a lookalike in obscene photos.

          • John Connor

            That was a false story made to drum up views.

          • Forca84

            Perhaps. But I don’t know any normal man in his 50’s who would enjoy spending time with a stranger’s kids. Let alone having them sleep in his bed. (Him sleeping on the floor or not.)

          • John Connor

            Michael Jackson was not normal and that’s not a bad thing.

            There’s absolutely zero evidence of anything bad happening.

            Two trusted sources (one very outspoken against pedophiles) has denied anything bad happening when they were kids with Michael.

          • Forca84

            Well it’s all over now. Yes I read the retraction of that article today. (Which BTW only showed up on my FB recently) If he had anything damning in his possesion dollars to Donuts he sure as hell wouldn’t have left it anywhere to be found even after death. If it existed it has long since been destroyed. I feel the truth is somewhere in the middle. *shrugs* Agree to disagree.

          • You’ve just jumped from “there’s proof, it’s in this article” to “well, it seems like it’s really likely” when the article gets debunked. HUGE world of difference, man. HUGE. There are plenty of things that can seem “likely” and not be true. Loom up the definition for “truthiness.”

          • Forca84

            Why do you care?

          • Because I teach rhetoric for a living and proud public displays of rampant poor logic personally offend me.

          • kaileighblue

            This is all fake and you should feel ashamed for believing lies when you can read the reports yourself.

      Gary, I concur. Polanski is a filthy molester of a child and Jackson paid off his complainants – always suspect. I wouldn’t have left my child in his care, anyway.

  • SpaceManSpliffz .

    so that’s why he went out of the public eye, his manager told him that people don’t want to see him sans plastic surgery when he pulled all the loose skin back to “look younger”

    Edit: yes it took me that long to articulate this “joke” from my first comment on here haha

  • gjk2012 .

    Would be nice to watch the Thriller music video before or after this animated special.
