Barkis Bittern and Leo Laporte

Okay, I’m not crazy. Really.

I was installing my Xbox 360 HD-DVD drive this evening, testing the new setup with my Corpse Bride DVD. The image quality, for whatever it’s worth, is absolutely stellar – even though I’m only connected through a classic component video connection (as opposed to the new Xbox 360 HDMI cable on a Panasonic TV that’s only good through 720p. No matter, that’s not the point of why I’m writing this post.

I quickly realized why the Corpse Bride character, Barkis Bittern, looked so familiar. Maybe I’m caught under the spell of high definition DVDs, but… I think he might be Leo Laporte’s cartoon twin:
