Does anyone know if this UK restaurant still exist? Does it, perchance, still have the RAE (for which newer shows have been produced)? The Web doesn't seem to have much info on it...

The last I heard The show got removed presumably because it would clash with the new space theme they were doing I think (And yet no Moon Rockers come back? D= )

I've only ever seen a couple of Mentions for this place. And if they chose a space theme, they should have done their research! ;)

Originally, if I remember correctly, the restaurant was started by someone who liked the whole FEC concept and wanted to bring it to the UK. He contracted with Aaron for a custom show, in which their own character, Hanna Banana, would star with a trimmed down RAE cast. New dialog was recorded for the Hanna character and incorporated with existing show songs. Jenn Wait worked with Aaron on creating the Hanna Banana character by retrofitting Mitzi.

I think the FEC concept didn't quite go over in the UK, and the restaurant closed. As far as I know, no one knows what happened to the show.

A Retrofit mitzi? That's Interesting.

Well, if we are talking FEC's in The UK, Gulliver's Kingdom/land/Palace/Whatever they call it now has an RAE Show (Became the Hard Luck bears-No Relation other than CEI)

I think Jenn did a good job with the Hannah bot. Not sure what's up with that walk around, though.

The mascot/Mitzi retrofit is... pretty good. I wonder if Billy Bob still referred to the trio as the RAE? 0-o

If you go to creative engineering I'm sure he'd have the mold of her face!

Sorry, I posted all these photos in a hurry and didn't have a chance to add any text. I have quite a few more images of the pre-production work (sketches, different sculpts, etc) because Jenn was really good about documenting the process. I saved them all when they were posted to the old forum. :)

I have all of the Hannah shows as well except for one, that I seem to have lost the MP3 for. They recorded a demo track with one voice actress and then switched to another to make the actual recordings. I have the demo and all the ones with the second actress, but am missing the demo show that was re-recorded with the newer voice (the second version of the demo, basically).

There was some huge drama with the girl who recorded the shows and Aaron. Can't even remember what it was, but something along the lines of the girl thinking she was a superstar and wanting a lot more compensation, or rights or royalties, or something to that effect (this was the story from Aaron). I don't think it ever came to legal matters but it sounded like it was headed that route.

Because of that mess, a lot of the Hannah stuff has been swept under the rug and isn't talked about these days. :(
