I Can't Tell You

I'm working on something but I can't say what it is yet.

Maybe I could give you clues...(this is probably a bad idea)

It's something for Moonstone, who have previously done anthologies for licensed characters like Zorro, the Phantom, and Kolchack, the Night Stalker.

No, it's not Zorro, the Phantom, and Kolchack, the Night Stalker.
No, I can't tell you who it is.
No, it's not an anthology about Darby O'Gill and the little people.
Yes, I do remember that a young Sean Connery was in that movie.
No, it's not a cross-over about 007 and the Little People (where do you come up with this stuff?)
Yes, it has to do with a licensed character.
Yes, it was a favorite character from when I was young.
Yes, they did have fictional characters way back then! How old do yuo think I am, anyway?
(Darned kids these days!)
No, I can't tell you who it is.
No, it's not Batfink. This is a much more serious character than Batfink.
No, it's not Anna Karinina!
Yes, I know that Tolstoy is more serious than Batfink, but that doesn't automatically mean...
Let's just say this character is in the middle ground between Batfink and Anna Karinina.
No, it's not a tragic Russian heroine who poses as an animated crimefghter. That's really not what I meant.
Aaaaaaah! You're driving me crazy with these incessant quesitons.

Okay, if you won't leave me alone I'll tell you. it's

There, are you satisfied?

Clearly I'm referring to a new "Law and Order" anthology, because one day all fiction will (and should) be a franchise of L&O.

Doink doink!

I know who it is.

It is not Robin
Nor is it Robin Hood
Nor is it the Black Hood
Nor is it the Black Fury
Nor is it Nick Fury, Agent of SHIELD
Nor is it the Man from UNCLE
Nor is it Uncle Martin from My Favorite Martian
Nor is it any of the characters from Robinson Crusoe on Mars
Which means that it's not Friday
Which makes sense because it's only Thursday.

What was the question again?
