File comment: EDIT 2:
I changed Peanut's "Avast, Bino, what doth ye desire?" to "Hark, doth Bino calleth me?" because Peanut doesn't see Bino, only hear him, and looked actually worried for his plight (albeit because it meant he'd have to stop his game at a crucial moment). The new words seem to convey more the
"Nobody listens to me!"
"Huh, did you say something?"

Oh, now you've done it. Now I can just see Bino doing Hamlet.

And if imagining something about a play is but the shadow of a shadow, does that make it real?

Yep - and the "shadows" bit is in my post is A Midsummer Nights Dream reference - but Bino still seems perfect as the overdramatic and more-than-a-bit-crazy princeling who manages to get almost everyone in the play killed.

He'd also do very well as any jealous sibling, treacherous schemer, or similar character (or possibly The Black Adder).

Okay, now I just had to do this. It's Prince Hamlet's first monologue in the play.
Act 1 scene 2, Prince Hamlet has been left alone after being told for several pages to stop worrying about his father's death, and is obviously upset by it.

I know, I could've done better. If I didn't have other things to do, I would've taken the background away.
It also turns out it was harder to find Bino looking depressed than it is to find Bino looking angry.

Maybe we could start a new "translation project" with this?

edit:
I had forgotten what this monologue was actually about, until I reread my post. Please, nobody kill me for this.

I concur, Bino would be a perfect Jaques, for those familiar with As You Like It.
Yes, I just used "concur" in a sentence.

The last frame would be more awesome if the line were "Gadzooks".

That is actually Old English. In fact, it was considered a very bad curse in the 1500s. :P
