This afternoon, while my Southern Man took our son back to college, our daughter watched The Incredibles. Every time I see a particular character in that movie, I think of this guy:
That was his last broadcast on that station. Here is the long version of the tribute to him:
looks a bit like a jollier version of Gilbert Huph?
Gilbert Huph, Bob Parr’s (a.k.a. Mr. Incredible) boss at Insuricare, was voiced by the actor Wallace Shawn. You will remember him from The Princess Bride (one of my favorite movies) as Vizzini, a.k.a. “Mr. Inconceivable”:
Anyways, I hope you can see why I can’t stop associating Gilbert Huph with Al Kaprielian every time that movie comes on! Mr. Kaprielian, however, is a much nicer, more lovable guy–plus, he’s Armenian. Some people may think he’s a little nutty, but he’s sure to put a smile on your face with his words, accent and/or antics! And on that note, “Good EEEEEEEEEVE-ning” to you!
