Seeing that Little Orphan Annie, Popeye, Garfield, Dennis the Menace and even Marmaduke have been made into movies I suppose it's only a matter of time before Beetle Bailey gets a big screen treatment.
I suppose we'll end up with some brilliant casting of Ashton Kutcher in the title role of Beetle Bailey and master thespian and character actor himself Jack Black as Sgt. Snorkle.
I would imagine the movie would begin with Beetle Bailey graduating college and going on a drunken all night bender with his frat as "one last hurrah". The next morning he would awaken completely hung over and unaware of what has taken place the night before.
Suddenly an bugle playing revelry would go off making him snap awake and Sgt. Snorkle would be in his face yelling at him to get out of bed.
That's when he discovers in his drunken stupor he accidentally joined the army and hilarity soon ensues.
Nothing is listed on IMDB.com as far as I know as of yet. But I imagine it's only a matter of time before it will be coming to a theatre or $1.99 DVD discount rack at Price Chopper near you.
