‘Electric Love’, An Animated ‘Bob’s Burgers’ Music Video Featuring a Love Story Between Thomas Edison and an Elephant

Published by:

“Electric Love” is an animated music video for the television show Bob’s Burgers that features Stephin Merritt and Kenny Mellman singing a love song about inventor Thomas Edison and an elephant named Topsy–which the show alleges Edison had electrocuted—but the actual history of the event is a bit more complicated. The video is part of a series of animated music videos featuring songs from the show being covered by other artists.

The song was originally performed by the characters Mr. Fischoeder (as Edison) and Gayle (as Topsy) with Gene and Tina acting out the voices as part of the third season episode “Topsy,” which aired in the United States on March 10, 2013.

Budsies, One-of-a-Kind Plush Toys Based on Children’s Artwork

Published by:

Budsies

Budsies are custom handmade plush toys based on drawings and photos submitted by customers. Once a customer places an order with attached artwork, Budsies staff creates a one-of-a-kind pattern based on the drawing, selects matching fabric, and sews each toy together.

Budsies founder Alex Furmansky was inspired by his younger sister’s drawings.

My sister Michelle was born when I was already 16 so I had the privilege of seeing her art evolve throughout her childhood. She brought home dozens of drawings each week from pre-school, camp, and a host of art classes. But sadly, the drawings went from being displayed on the fridge to being buried in a dismal box in the basement. From wacky shapes to advanced illustrations, Michelle’s creativity was getting forgotten.

The idea for Budsies came when I saw Michelle hugging her stuffed animals and tucking them in at night. What if I could turn a drawing into a stuffed animal friend that would last forever? Quite literally bring her drawings to life!
