I even went a little crazy on the speciality lettering sound effects [in Glamourpuss #23], reasoning that there's a whole different quality of sound in a confined space like a garage... in the same way that a garage is a little darker (actually a lot darker), which meant layers and layers and layers of cross hatching... The sound of a 1956 Corvette starting up inside of a garage - what would that look like? "What would that look like?" Er, pretty complicated. Yeah, evidently. By the time he was throwing it in to reverse and backing the car out of the garage, I couldn't wait to get outside where there were no sound effects.
