Flatulence Fascination

There are words I prefer not to say, vagaries of the body I see no need to mention.

Apparently, I am alone in this regard because they are mentioned—frequently.

As any five-year-old can attest, there is one noxious noise in particular that is greeted with glee, and awarded with laughter.

Kate Beaton, a Cape Breton cartoonist, has worked this fascination with flatulence into her children’s book, The Princess and the Pony, giving her warrior princess a steed with intestinal issues.


Based on Kate’s book, AppleTV+ is releasing a new animated series, Pinecone and Pony.

Let the laughter begin.

  1. I am reminded of Mystery Men, a “superhero” comedy from about 20 years ago. The heroes are a group of misfits. The wonderful William H. Macy is The Shoveler, a man who can really manipulate a shovel. Paul Reubens, aka Pee Wee Herman, is Spleen. His super talent emanates from his rear end. The best talent in the group is one man’s ability to be invisible, but only if no one is looking. It’s a surprisingly funny film.

  2. If my children were still little, I’d buy this book. It’s great to see stories with kids of color and girls is empowered roles. Not so long ago The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats, was the first children book to feature a black kid. I’m glad to see that we’ve moved on. I’m not as impressed with the Pinecone & Pony trailer but that’s probably my bias against TV as a substitute for reading, esp for small kids.
