“SWEET MOTHER MACHREE!”

When I was trying to work out what to have the security guard say, I wanted something more interesting than “AAAAH!” The phrase above entered my head. I think it was probably something I heard Chief O’Hara say in the 1966 Batman TV show. The character of O’Hara was played by the actor Stafford Repp, as a somewhat clichéd Irish stereotype – hence the catchphrase. Mother Machree is an Irish-American song which (according to Wikipedia) dates back to a 1910 stage musical called Barry of Ballymoore. More recently it was featured in the Martin Scorsese film, The Departed.

He looks like a gingerbread version of Max from Sunset Boulevard.

That's interesting that you make that connection. My first job in the animation industry was working on a film called Cats Don't Dance, which had a character also called Max, which was based directly on the Sunset Boulevard character. Now that you mention it, I wonder if I kind of pulled that reference out of my subconscious for my Gingerbread Golem?
