As Turbo is proving, snails just don’t cut the mustard… and this is not the first time it’s been tried.

In the late seventies Universal’s Lorenzo Music was in the business of developing an animated feature called Simon and Miranda and he, wisely, sought some advice from the best in the business - Disney veteran director and writer Ward Kimball (the man behind Jiminy Cricket.)

John, tell your friend, Lorenzo to spend his money on something besides snails. I have a gut feeling that snails are only for the French, who beat them into cardboard and garlic, and NOT, repeat, not for us gardeners of America!
