Sam and Max's "lack of a functioning moral compass might make them a long shot to drive a major studio production," but the cartoon cop duo "would make a great movie", creator Steve Purcell believes.

Talking to VideoGamer.com about his role in the development of recent Pixar tie-in Brave: The Video Game, Purcell said that "Sam & Max have proved themselves remarkably resilient to adaptation".

"They always manage to maintain the integrity of their lunacy no matter the medium. I think they would make a great movie."

Purcell debuted the characters in a comic book in the 1980s, before releasing classic PC point & click Sam & Max: Hit The Road in 1993. The pair later spawned a TV series, before Purcell moved to Pixar in the early noughties.

So given his big screen experience, why hasn't Purcell attempted to take Sam & Max to Hollywood?

"I've just tended to keep Sam & Max separate from my work at Pixar so there's never any confusion about it," he continued.

"I think Sam & Max's lack of a functioning moral compass might make them a long shot to drive a major studio production. Though I'm certainly not opposed to giving it a shot."

Pixar? Dreamworks? Are you listening? If so, don't try to sanitize the humour.
