They're History
The Blue Genie boys -- those whimsical artists responsible for the armadillo-festooned entrance to Threadgill's World Headquarters, the guitar gal atop Fran's Hamburgers, and other mini-landmarks around Austin -- have been fun for the people who see them and fun for the people who made them.

The first proposal (dated July 2000 and tentatively titled This Land Called Texas) would have required seed money from the Legislature, followed by private donations, and a production that would feature voice-overs by six well-known narrators (Dan Rather, Tish Hinojosa, Lance Armstrong, Sissy Spacek, Chuck Norris or Tommy Lee Jones, and Barry Corbin)..."
