Ellen’s 12 Days of Christmas features Kathie’s COMET REINDEER MASCOT!!!

It’s time for another 12 Days of Christmas on the ELLEN SHOW! Watch as COMET appears and stay tuned for an upcoming BuildVlog right here on Fireball Malibu Vlog!!

WATCH! Kathie’s Secret Ellen DeGeneres Project REVEALED!!!

Yep, the cat’s outta the bag with what Kathie’s been working on for the last few months here in Malibu. It’s Ellen’s new Game Show episode called KNOCKIN’ BOOTS.

These were 8.5 feet tall Cowboy Boots that actually kick people off stage. See the build photos and videos below.

All built by Kathie and our team here in the Bu.

Despite the painful build process, looks like these girls are getting the sh$# kicked outta them!

Kathie’s Creations in 2017…

Just a small sample of what Kathie did last year. Amazing stuff, but pales in comparison to what’s planned for this year, starting with her MERMAID COLORING BOOK. Gonna be epic and beautiful. Out in March!

Mark Wahlberg AT&T Commercial featured Kathie’s DOLLAR COSTUME!

Mark Wahlberg reminds us of three vital necessities that include food, water and the internet. When it comes to the internet, no one wants to find hidden fees in their bill, even if the role of those fees is played by Anjelica Huston. Costume by KCL productions.

Kathie set to build for HONDA again…

Come Monday, Honda’s SPOKESCRUMB Mascots are heading back to the Malibu Pad for an upgrade. Kathie will be building a new Gummy Bear and enhancing the rest of the characters with all kinds of cool add-ons. Be sure to watch THE VLOG to get a behind the scenes look!

A day on set with THE ELLEN DEGENERES SHOW… #WB #Costume #Mascot #TheEllenShow


Yesterday, we headed out to WB to deliver Kathie finished Christmas Mascot to Ellen’s set. It was a hit, but while we waited for Ellen to arrive, we had lunch and walked around the lot a bit. I can’t show you the Costume yet until it airs tomorrow (so expect photos here on Thursday!), but it’s pretty hysterical.

Also took this sneak shot of the set of the Coen Brother’s new film HAIL, CAESAR. Wups. Don’t tell anyone, ’cause it wasn’t me and I’ll deny it!

Mascot of the Day… Nintendo’s MARIO & LUIGI in the U.S. Virgin Islands #nintendo #supermario #luigi #supermarioworld #gameboy


Ok, so I normally post MASCOTS on our KCL Blog, but I’ve gotten requests to see what Kathie has done for NINTENDO a lot here. So…. looks like I’ll be double-posting Mascots here too. And today… it’s MARIO & LUIGI.

We shot this spot in the U.S. Virgin Islands a few years back. Pretty hysterical, considering they hung myself and buddy Bob from wires to do the last shot. Yes, I’m Super Mario. 9 days in the USVI… pretty fun.

This week @ THE MALIBU FIREBALL PAD… Superbowl, Toys, 5MD, Cars, Comics & Cool @malibu #malibu @malibooz


BIG week here at the Fireball Pad in the Bu. Lots of fun and wacky projects building that should add to this year’s Official Cool Factor (OCF). So, let’s get to it…

KCL… has secure the contract for the 2015 ARIZONA SUPERBOWL. That means that Kathie is building the Superbowl Mascot to premiere in Arizona. I’ve been designing him for the last couple months and it looks pretty fun. If you recall, she did the Superbowl a few years back with SPIKE. And although his name will be the same, the design is completely different. New KCL Episodes coming also.

TOYS… Because of my writings in the PATCH, an interesting opportunity has come for toys. Just signed a licensing deal with a great new client to design toys for Christmas 2014. On shelves. Now, although I can’t say who or what it is, I can say that the toys are gonna be awesome. And yes, cars. But, if you know the kind of stuff I like to do, then you’ll know they won’t be normal. Cha.

5MINUTE DRIVE… episode was supposed to go live this morning but due to Youtube tech difficulties (Thank you very much), it borked. So, expect that episode tomorrow… but here’s an image for ya until then.

CARS… be comin’ to the Fireball Pad this year and this week is the aggregation. I’ll be driving cars from CHEVROLET, CADILLAC, HYUNDAI, KIA, VOLVO, MITSUBISHI, PORSCHE, BMW & MINI. Looking to secure others, too but there WILL be some surprises.

COMICS… will continue @ the MALIBU SURFSIDE NEWS, but we’ve expanded to RIDE OF THE WEEK. New articles about cool people in Malibu with their Cool Rides. Be sure to subscribe or peruse the site for the latest. This is a year of advancement and serious growth and I’m stoked about that. Do you live in the Bu and want to be featured? askfireball@fireballtim.com

BOOKS… are still in the works. WACKY STATES is looking for a Publisher and Book 3 will be on its way (conceptually) soon. Yes, it’s LETTERS and kids are gonna love this one.

On the Fireball Project Horizon? The Sedona Film Festival, Mill Dog Rescue, Ebay Motors, Talk Show & Hypershorts.
