Bad Boy Bubby

Synopsis: Bad Boy Bubby is just that: a bad boy. So bad, in fact, that his mother has kept him locked in their house for his entire thirty years, convincing him that the air outside is poisonous. After a visit from his estranged father, circumstances force Bubby into the waiting world, a place which is just as unusual to him as he is to the world.

Good, healthy-looking specimen, too.

You done well, Flo.

Hey, son!

I'm your Pop!



He's gettin' the idea.

Alright, don't go making

a big thing of it.

Listen, Flo.

I know I should have been back

sooner and I'm sorry and all that.

But do you reckon, you know...

You and me...

You know...

Will you still have me, Flo?

I don't know.

You bein' a man of God now...

Oh, that...

Did a bit of preaching

part-time, nothing in it.

How about it, then?

Make an honest women of you!

Don't know if I can

trust you, Harold.

Hey, what's up, son? You got

a mental condition or something?

If you and me are gonna learn

to live together...

...we gotta have some respect!


I think he comprends.

How about some refreshment, love?

Sorry, Harold.

Hey, son!

Me and your mother

would like to have a bit of a talk.

How about going outside?

Bubby ain't used to going outside.

By himself...

Son, you ain't a poofter, are you?

I don't want any son of mine

growing up to be a... homosexual.

I'd disown him first.

You got to try to understand...

Me and Bubby...

We been here... hm...

by ourselves a long time.

But he ain't like other kids.

He was such a difficult birth.

All alone in here,

no one to help you...

I didn't think

I'd pull through.

So you gotta try to understand.

As long as he ain't a poofter.

Oh, no. No, he ain't.
