Did you see Harry fight Kevin Smith for a Corn Dog at COMIC CON?

Hey folks, Harry here...  Life gets weird.   Somedays you're hanging out at home when suddenly a shit ton of messages start pouring in...  "Harry, you're fighting Kevin Smith at Comic Con on THE CLEVELAND SHOW."    I have to be honest, I'd never seen a single episode.   But then I rarely watch Network Television.   I've a DVD column to prep for.   

Then Paul Dini wrote me to say it was awesome and hilarious.   Well, that meant I had to seek it out.   THE CLEVELAND SHOW posted the episode online today entitled HOT COCOA BANG BANG.   The show features me battling Kevin Smith for a really fucking yummy looking corn dog.   I mean, that corn dog could inspire me to go all Tetsuo on a mutherfucker!  I know I dominated Kevin in the fight because it is MY ARMPIT HAIR that beat his genetic armpit hair trait, so I deem that I won.    SO WHERE'S MY FUCKING CORNDOG?   

Anyway...  the fight starts at the 2:30 minute mark of the show.   If you want to watch the whole thing, it features Robert Rodriguez as the bad guy.   Which really cracks me up.

    Here's how to see me fight @thatkevinsmith on THE CLEVELAND SHOW!

  • May 16, 2011, 8:29 p.m. CST

    Nice! Watching the clip now.

    So... Harry, do you feel more partial to THIS... or the fact that Comic Book Guy from The Simpsons essentially had your Web site URL?

  • May 16, 2011, 8:30 p.m. CST

    thumbs up

    This episode was excellent

    by Terrence

    Very nice satire of Hollywood basically taking over the geek scene as of late and how a lot of us take issue with it.

  • May 16, 2011, 8:34 p.m. CST

    BTW... the scene starts at the 4:25 mark.

    by Bob Loblaw Law Blog

    Did I really have to sit through a Kevin Durant commercial though? Yes, yes... I know the Blazers picked Greg Oden with the No. 1 pick, who basically has the body of Elijah Price in UNBREAKABLE and has played 82 games in FOUR YEARS, when they could have had Durant. Thanks for rubbing it in, Internet.

    FYI Harry- a TV show isn't "entitled," but "titled." This is true for all movies, albums, etc. "Entitled" refers to something like "I am entitled to property." Cool cool. Love the site!

  • May 16, 2011, 8:55 p.m. CST

    I actually think that you're in there twice, Harry.

    by cookepuss

    I have to roll it back, but I could swear that's also you being driven around in a petty cab near the end of the ep. It would appear that you dominated Smith.... or ate him. Depends on how much of that corndog he still had in his gut. ;->

    bob loblaw law blog....what are sports?

    by gruemanlives

    I have heard many a tale of these sports you speak of. Are they like pod racing or light cycle racing?

    Re: "Hot Cocoa Bang Bang"

    by ArmageddonProductions

    I'd have figured somebody on here would have flagged this episode before it aired! There were a ton of voice cameos in this one, but that really was Robert Rodriguez doing his own voice as the "bad guy" (and a great nod to EL MARIACHI/DESPERADO at the end)!

  • Furthermore, I have no plans to investigate.

    If AICN is dead, is your coming to the site, reading articles and posting comments equal to necrophilia?

  • May 16, 2011, 9:36 p.m. CST

    That was so awesome!

    by Candice

    My husband and I hardly ever watch the Cleveland Show, but for some reason last night it was on. My husband saw you (or rather animated you) and called me into the room. I went running. It was awesome. We laughed so hard. I think it's a sign of greatest to make a cartoon cameo on a prime time show.

  • May 16, 2011, 10:47 p.m. CST

    Amazing how someone can take pride in being made fun of.

    by SierraTangoFoxtrotUniform

    But then again, this is Harry, whose ego is actually bigger than his ass.

  • May 16, 2011, 11 p.m. CST

    That's absurd, nothing is bigger than Harry's ass.

    by ROBRAM89

    Almost ashamed of going for that obvious a joke.

  • May 16, 2011, 11:23 p.m. CST

    Funny episode... Too bad the show sucks

    by Andrew Coleman

    Tried watching this before... It's horrible. This episode was great though. Props to you Harry taking. They only make fun of you when you're on top. So take pride.

    this is probably the first time I've ever agreed with you on anything.

    ...enlighten me (and the rest of the world outside the US of A). What is a corndog? Is it a hotdog made from corn?

  • May 17, 2011, 3:33 a.m. CST


    by Roger Moon

    it's a hot dog rolled in batter and then deep fried

  • May 17, 2011, 3:41 a.m. CST

    I'm from the UK and the last time I was in the US...

    by Big_Bubbaloola

    ... I tried a corndog for the first time. And you Yanks have the gall to say OUR food is terrible!

  • May 17, 2011, 4:02 a.m. CST

    "And you Yanks have the gall to say OUR food is terrible!"

    by buggerbugger

    That's probably because it's not deep-fried enough for them. No, not even the salads.

  • May 17, 2011, 6:31 a.m. CST

    Oh my gawd...

    by Grrrr.... there nothing you people won't deep fry...?

    I regularly watch the Cleveland Show, this was was awesome. My kids were watching and asked who "those two guys were?" The only thing that saved them is they are too young to know, but my wife remembered Harry from Fanboys (or the actor portraying him!) On a side note, I know you don't watch much TV Harry, but what do you think about the rumor of Seth Mcfarlane getting the rights to re-make the Flintstones cartoons?

    big_bubbaloola: SERIOUSLY?

    by ByTor

    You're from the UK, and you ask if there's anything WE won't fry? Have you COMPLETELY forgotten about Scotland? Are you NOT the country that brought us the Bacon Butty? Jesus Fucking Christ on a pogo stick, there are all kinds of things the UK can mock the US over, but frying shit just ain't one of 'em.

  • May 17, 2011, 10:30 a.m. CST

    Well, it's official, Geek Culture has been completely commodified


    When it has become cool to be a geek, it's no longer cool.

    They even deep fry butter at the Texas State fair. Really. And yes, corn dogs are as vile as you might imagine. If you ever come across one, don't give into curiosity. Every time you eat one it takes 5 months off your life. They've done studies.

    And I thought Harry was bedridden from being too fat.

  • May 17, 2011, 12:48 p.m. CST

    Deep fried butter?

    by Grrrr....

    How do you eat it? Good god.... I have heard of fried mars bars, that is pretty weird already.

  • May 17, 2011, 3:10 p.m. CST

    lol yeah not bad

    by CT1

    It's always nice to still get a few chuckles out of the old "comic convention" kind of premise, and you can always tell when the people creating it actually live it and understand it versus when it's a bunch of old guys just trying to cash in on something that has recognition value. And look at you, Harry, gettin your way back up there.. I mean, obviously, you aren't thrilled and don't seem to really care, which is totally fair enough, you're used to the "fame". I do find it interesting that you were representing for a decent amount of time for a throwaway "gag/bit", especially on a relatively newer show that is made up of the next generation of writers and creativity, and is on what is arguably considered a pretty big place to be in network television. Ah well, it's probably nothing, I do notice you've at least been.. TRYING to make an effort lately, instead of the usual run this place into the ground effort we've gotten in the past, so we DO appreciate it. Oh and sure, bashing Twilight is def old, but then to say it's the Star Wars for teen girls, that pretty much condemns it to being bashed forever.. let's call it the dark knight for teenage girls, I mean sure that's a fine film for "what it is", and can take the life-long bashing.. that's the sacrifice it's making.

    I heard Harry eats a fried chicken for breakfast

    by Nabster

    Every day. And regarding making this site better or more relevant to geeks, I dunno. There is no doubt Fat Harry is one of the worst, least reliable reviewers on the net. He is also shamelessly fat. But his enthusiasm is something ppl like, even if he likes the worst films. Oh, and I'm not kidding. Fat Harry eats at least a fried chicken and a pint of ice cream just for breakfast!

    Cleveland can be pretty funny, but the one to watch is American Dad.

    by JuanSanchez

    Easily the best MacFarlane show at the moment. The funniest animated show period right now is Archer - at least until The Venture Bros. come back. Bob's Burgers is also very funny.

    by sunwukong86

    by far the strongest of the three Macfarlane Fox shows.

    Harry once ate 4 deep fried pizzas at one movie

    During his stupidly named butnumbathon. True story. You almost have to admire his unrelenting gluttony.

    Harry walking no longer in realm of cartoon-fantasy

    by _V_

    I was watching this scene, and I realized that the prospect of Father Geek running around at the floor of Comic Con and having a fight with Kevin Smith is no longer in the realm of cartoon-fantasy. As soon as you're regularly up and about, do you think you might stage a brief re-enactment of this fight with Kevin at a future Comic-Con?

  • May 21, 2011, 6:29 p.m. CST

    I'd hate to be the grammar-nazi of grammar-nazis ...

    by nico_laos

    ... especially since the guy's username is 'journalismnerd', but Harry's use of the word 'entitled' is still correct. Journalismnerd's use is also correct. They are both correct. Imagine that? And another thing: I like how Harry wasn't interested in seeing the clip until Paul Dini called him. Name dropping again. You know how we all love that. Remember all those 'So, I just got off the phone with ...' jokes?

  • May 24, 2011, 8:15 p.m. CST

    And here we have the reason this site exists...

    Paul Dini is the man responsible for some of the greatest US animated series ever made. Batman The Animated Series and Justice League being chief among them.
