- Babette might have originally been intended to represent Lust (just look at the her depiction in the pirate ship scene near the end, and listen to the song again).
- The "Babette" part of the theory doesn't work because she inspires lust; she is not herself lustful.
- Perhaps the pirates would be lust?
- Still, it's easy to see why some would think they were going that way. King Koo-Koo could be said to represent pride.
- The sea monster, Gadzooks, could conceivable represent sloth. He's first seen napping in the ocean, he tells King Koo-Koo he's bored and his overall demeanor is slow, laid back and just going with the flow.
- You could even say it's a "idle hands are the devil's playthings" theme, since the bored monster is easily swayed by King Koo-Koo into tickle torturing a bunch of random people/toys just for something to do.
- Koo Koo could also represent envy, he wants to be a tall king.
- Dear Jesus Christ! Thank God the last thing he saw wasn't a Metal Gear game! Though to be fair, this was 1977. But yeah, I agree. ...you have to admit, where did the normal scenes come from?
- See the Marcella theory below.
A taffy monster? That's just his cover story.
- Then he'd have a sexy anime voice like Tetsuo has. So that can't be the case.
- Supported. Combine this with the "dolls playing pretend" theory above.
He (actually she) even wants to eat Ann's candy heart the way Witches devour Soul Gems. (Wouldn't be surprised if Charlotte was in fact somewhat inspired by the Greedy; Studio Shaft and Akiyuki Shinbo are pretty artsy, and Richard Williams is well-known to animation buffs.)
- It would definitely explain the weird and trippy images.
