Decoder Ring Theatre[]

In 2007 Decoder Ring Theatre produced the episode "Slick Bracer and the Giant Nap" for their Showcase series. The episode was well received, resulting in DRT producing all 6 episodes as their 2011 Showcase series. This is probably the most widely known interpretation of Slick Bracer.

Deckers gave DRT director/producer Gregg Taylor permission to change the name of Slick's secretary to "Mabel" for the 2007 show, and "Mildred" in the 2011 series, due to a character named "Trixie" being a lead on DRT's Black Jack Justice series. The 2007 episode was produced with a simple piano for music and starred M. John Kennedy and Gregg Taylor. For the 2011 series, Taylor cast Peter Nicol and Christopher Mott and used a disco-esque soundtrack, creating a completely different feel for the show.
