I think it would work. I think they couldn't make it work, however. They tried, and gave up on it.
I'm no longer convinced how hard they tried, however, since they didn't really try
that hard to name Murphy "Karrin" instead of "Connie," and at least dye her hair blonde.
I mean, maybe you don't have the budget to really do the efx necessary to make a skull as animated and lively as a person. I get the limitations of TV. But at the same time, they made absolutely, perfectly idiotic choices in the show.
This nigga goes around carrying a fuckin' magic hockey stick, because walking into an office building or a police station with a hockey stick when you ain't dressed for fuckin' hockey is gonna draw less attention than carrying a regular stick. Or a blasting rod that he purposely designed to be concealed under his coat.
