Sounds great to me.  With Terry involved, I trust it won't be too mucked up.

But, who can play Knobby?

Did you see the Hogfather?  There was a sequence with Knobby Nobbs, and Lance Constable Visit, and Nobbs was spot on.

I quite enjoyed Hogfather, but some of the other productions not as much.   I think it was Colour of Magic that I thought was kind of mixed.  I wish to hell they'd get a big budget and go for something daring.   I would love to see "Small Gods" make it to any sort of screen
