To any MLP or RS fan who's asking 'What the heck is that thing with Big Mac?'
...it's Robot and Monster
's very own Santa Claus known as Saint Crispy
Merry Christmas! And to all the RnM fans, Merry Baconmas! Nothing says the holidays like a roast made of bacon!
Well, it's Christmas night and the whole day has simply been wonderful, and one of the presents I got for Christmas: a Regular Show
wallet, which is why I decided to draw Rigby up there. I can't wait to use it the next time I go shopping.
I'm also very happy to have finished this piece before midnight.
Anyway, a little bit of description for dear Saint Crispy...he appeared in the RnM episode "Baconmas" and represents the union of both Mechanicals and Organics, or robots and monsters in other terms.
He is the show's FIRST EVER Cyborg
. And a totally original Santa
among other ones from most shows.
What makes him so original from other Santa figures you see on various holiday specials is not only his design, but the fact that he represents a purpose more than giving presents. He represents the togetherness of different cultures, well, species, actually. Oh, and he performs magic and hands out bacon by the load every Baconmas. Even my good friend and fellow RnM fan
considers him VERY original.
I think since I saw that episode, I've kept referring to Christmas as 'Baconmas'. And when I eat our holiday ham, I pretend it's the bacon roast the characters ate in that episode. Yeah, I'm weird.
I got to be honest, guys, although said character was responsible for the SEVERE
bacon allergy reaction he gave poor Ogo
, I kind of see him as a sweet guy with lots of spirit. That and I'm starting to realize how incredibly handsome
Yeah, go ahead and call me REALLY
His character is on the same line of originality as the Santa Claus from Rise of the Guardians
. I ADORED
that movie, and Santa with a Russian accent is total WIN
Too bad a few of my friends didn't like the accent...
Also, for any brony who thinks I've made Big Macintosh WAY
out of character...refer back to the Season 2 MLP FIM episode "Lesson Zero" and recall a certain OTHER
doll he showered so much affection for. Apparently, as shown in "Ponyville Confidential", he still has that doll.
Honestly, when I saw the expression on Big Mac's face when he had that doll in his mouth...my heart just MELTED
. He is just so
cute, yet he is the manliest stallion in all of Equestria. That's why so many mares adore him.
And now Smarty Pants has a playmate.
Merry Christmas, guys, and may your holiday be filled with stocks of bacon!
