Huizenga & Zettwoch Make Up “Facts” About “Leon Beyond”
“Disney was interested in bringing out “Midnight Madness” on Blu-ray, and we talked them into letting us use Leon as a character to kind of bring him back into circulation. We had already decided the strip would be called “Amazing Facts and Beyond,” so Leon Beyond was a natural fit, and their lawyers’ signed off on that. The idea was for us to act like Leon was a real guy, and so we always created this facade of that there was a real Leon Beyond and that he was writing these strips. There was some talk of Leon spinning off into new CGI movie, or a Disney Channel show, but that all fell apart once Tom Wright, the author of the novelization of “Midnight Madness,” and his lawyers got involved.”
