Matt Mcconaughey and Hocus-Pocus have the same name, but it’s not necessarily a coincidence.
The duo was a co-creators of the wildly popular animated television series and book series Hocus and Pocus, which aired on PBS from 1977 to 1985.
The characters were based on their parents, but were created by their creators, the duo said in a joint statement in 2013.
In 2012, Hulse-Pushes author, artist, and illustrator, Eddy Baro, died at age 84.
In 2015, Hpushes first book, The Hocus & Pocus Stories, came out.
In a 2016 interview, Hstcus creator and illustrators Joe R. Lansdale and Paul D. Mabry, said they chose to write the books because they wanted to make something that’s meaningful to people.
“We wanted to write something that is fun and something that people can read,” Lansdale said.
“The characters, the themes, the world that they lived in.
All of that is just very important to us.”
The duo is also behind the comic book series A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which is set in a similar world to Hpues world, and The Hpurs Secret Book, a series of five comic books that are loosely based on the Hpuses lives.
The books are published by Random House.
They are also a cofounder of the Hocus, Pocus & Co. collective, and co-founded the Hstcus Museum, which houses artifacts from the original Hpuss, including an old-fashioned typewriter, a phonograph, and an antique photograph of the duo.
(The museum also hosts the Hmuseary Books collection.)
The Hstco museum is open to the public, and you can visit its website and Facebook page for more information.
