Fans! Look what happened in San Francisco

Diana and Lauren came to the Cartoon Art Museum and got this:

Sydnie and Ally were first in line at the Kiddie matinee!
See their prizes.

Here's a review of the show!
Candice Ate My Shit Up!
Go say hi to her and thank her for the review!
She's one of the good ones.
So are her pals.

Hey folks.

Thanks for coming to all the shows over the weekend.

It was a lot of fun!

Hey why don't you tell me what cartoon bits or stories you liked best?

I was happy to see people laughing so hard at the damn Ripping Friends! The drawings in those cartoons sometimes make me cringe, but I guess the jokes were working.

The Kiddie Matinee was fun too. I drew all the boys and girls.

here's Max:

At the Cartoon Museum, I didn't really know what I was supposed to do, but it was filled with animators, animation students and teachers who prompted me into a lecture about the history of cartoons and who kept them cartoony and why they stopped being cartoony. People seemed very receptive and lined up after to get drawings and take photos. It's nice to see young cartoonists eager to know their roots!

If you haven't already been to the Cartoon Museum, get your ass over there to see some really cool comic stip, comic book and animated cartoon art from many eras and in many styles!

If you DO live in SF, the Castro people asked me to come back to host a 3 Stooges festival! Would you like that? Of course you would!

Or how about some nights of old time movie theatre experience with:
classic cartoon short (Bugs, Daffy or Popeye, etc.)
comedy short (3 Stooges)
a Ren and Stimpy with references to the classic films being shown (Space Madness or Stimpy's Invention, or Altruists...)
a B movie (The Raven with Bela Lugosi and Boris Karloff)
an A movie (Kirk Douglas in Detective Story)

?? Are you coming to that super fun??

If you don't live in San Francisco but want some of this action, someone set up some shows in your home town for some cartoon fun and film and cartoon history.

Your best friend,
