Dorko was originally invented in 1991, as a bad-ass gutsy dog who could talk to neighbourhood children. This comic was shortlived. In 1999, this comic idea was unearthed and re-hashed, and Dorko was no longer a dog, but a red-headed punk boy, who bore a striking resemblance to Johnny Rotten in his Sex Pistol heyday.
Dorko is the punked out hero of the comic series "Dorko on the Patio"--a comic which personified the angst of Canadian teens in the 1990s. A Punk classic giving Can Lit the electroshock therapy it sorely needed!
Pickford was played by Shawn Andrews in the 1993 film Dazed and Confused. Kevin Pickford was Michelle's boyfriend who dealt pot for a living, so he could pay off the car dealership who sold him his 1970 Pontiac GTO. In the film he drove around in his rad car getting wacked out on weed, and destroying private property. As you can tell by closely watching his countenace during the film, he spent most of his time in la la land, off in his own imagination. Very expressive eyes, I'll give him that.
