Honey, I'm Blowing Out The Candles! (Happy Birthday Rick Moranis!)




Rick Moranis was born on April 18th, 1953 and originally started his career in entertainment as a disc jockey in Toronto, Ontario, where he was born.
He ended up doing sketch comedy in the Second City Television Series (SCTV) and continued to rise, heading off to Hollywood.
From there he starred in some of The '80's most beloved comedies. "Little Shop Of Horrors." "Parenthood." The great Mel Brooks spoof "Spaceballs," which was such a treat being a Star Wars fan. And of course the "Honey, I Shrunk The Kids" franchise.
But I knew him from one beloved '80's franchise...Ghostbusters.
His character Louis Tully provided some of the biggest laughs in an already hilarious pair of films and he, along with the famous cast, brought such joy to my childhood.
I used to watch the films, the cartoon show (which his character also appeared from time to time), had the toys, drank the Ecto Cooler. What a time to be alive!
He also had some impressive hits in The '90's, with the continuation of the "Honey, I Shrunk" franchise, along with "The Flintstones" as the lovable Barney Rubble.
But after a few appearances in the Disney "Brother Bear" films, he stayed away from Hollywood.
The good news is that after a hiatus of over a decade, he will be back in another "Honey, I Shrunk The Kids" sequel, headed for Disney +. It's going to be amazing to see him again in a comedy. I sure have missed him.
