Does Warsaw gecko count as a pun? It's wordplay, sure, but is there such thing as an actual Warsaw gecko?

A pun is just a contextualized homophone. That context can be visual or a setup or anything else really. If you want to kill the frog (heyo), the context is that a lot of super villains/wrestlers have names like The [place] [animal/title] and instead of referencing some positive trait of Poland, it references genocide.

Was Warsaw Gecko even named? I seem to remember him being in the background and people working out what he was from the shell suit and reptile hood. I can't find any reference to the name after a quick google search, at any rate.

He might have been named in the credits since he did speak, honestly I figured it out due to him mentioning his gecko motif and him having a heavy Polish accent

Didn't Hammer say that Brick Frog came from when he was a kid playing superheroes and the only costume left was a frog suit and he used a brick as his weapon? Pretty sure that incredibly clever joke is just a coincidence.

That'd be a hell of a coincidence, especially coming from the guys who gave us Purple Pete Rose and Background Radiation.

Well, to be fair, I don't know if that's his official name. I'm pretty sure that's what a bunch of us here came up with, though.

He's in the picture below. He's the guy in the background, with the radiation symbol on his hat.

Background Radiation would be a cool name if the pun worked in universe. He's just a guy who stands in the background and has a radiation symbol? That's kind of lame.

Is it lame, though, to Doc and Jackson?

"OK, we need to fill the background with some generic villains. Get out the pun book!"
"Alright... ... OK, we have... Purple Prose = Purple Pete Rose, have we used him?"
"Nope. Draw it up. Oh, put in Plug Head. Now... who else?"
"We don't have a radiation guy, but I can't think of any fast pun we can--"
"Well, if he's radiation, and he's in the background of this one shot and only this one shot, then it's got to be Background Radiation."

I can see them having a conversation along these lines, making this character up just because he's in the background. By season 8, he'll have a story arc.

I just imagine he gives off a notable amount of radiation, and a protection racket. 'Give me money, and I won't stand around this public space, poisoning everyone with my unsafe levels of background radiation!'

I used to really like reading the mantis eye a few days after an episode aired due to the capsule notes. The person running it would go through and try and catch the little side notes etc of the show. It stopped after season 5 though, they musta got a job .

The Sketchfest thing was how I imagine a con panel, mostly bullshit (funny bullshit) and a lot of war stories about Dana Gould trying to reboot the Jetsons. Only a couple super nerd questions, one about retcons and the worst which was "what D&D class would you be?" The highlight was James Urbaniak proposing to his girlfriend.

The only tidbits for the future were that they're about to start production on S7 and there probably won't be any Trianna. (He left to door open for Dermott though)

He described it as "pissing up a rope for four years" and talked some poo poo about TV executives I didn't recognize. The best non-Venture line of the night was about Comedy Central [Doc pitched it to them unsuccessfully before adult swim]: "If you handed them a solid gold bar they'd get it bronzed."

One other funny thing: someone asked them if they'd had a lot of standards & practices notes and the two that came to mind were last season they had to fight to keep the Monarch's turd falling in the pool and ultimately shortened it and in the pilot when Brock kills the alligator he originally set the corpse on fire, "had to, it was pregnant." Otherwise Doc said they don't get a lot of "notes."
