A good laugh can get you through a whole day. A maniacal laugh lets you siphon off all those “crazy” plans stewing in your brain and gives those around you a slight pause to consider just how far they’re willing to push you.

So, start wringing those hands and grinning like a Maniac and belt it out!

Okay, I’m not gonna lie, this is a bit of a cheat, but there is some laughter here so bear with me. While Smaug the dragon has now become the dragon by which all others will be judged in terms of special effects thanks to The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, it was the 1977 cartoon film of The Hobbit, produced by Rankin/Bass, that first introduced me to Smaug the Stupendous (voiced by Richard Boone). Hear him boast and brag to Bilbo.
