Yogi Bear proves, once again, that you don't need a $50 million budget (-cough-Lion King-cough-) to create movement of character or humor. It takes construction and strength of character to win a duel.
I gots Mickey an' Popeye. I like dem.
Happy Fat Tuesday everyone! Be happy today!(I will be back to my regular studious self after the mayhem is over)
It looks like the guy with the Popeye head has too many fingers. Is that his pinky sticking out on the end, as the 6th finger, or am I crazy?
Hey John, I am a new guy in here.. First of all I wanna tell you how big a fan I am, and second, I really appreciate the lectures you're giving to us, here on you blogg... I have a question to, I was wondering, are you gonna put all those very useful lectures and comments into a book or something, sometime?- Wormen
Chris, I noticed that about the six fingers too. How fun for kids to see that mask come off and see it's just a harmless six-fingered clown? I love the Yogi Beatles comic too. Great stuff!
Neat!A post about masks would be great! Does Mike Fontanelli collect those, too?
The red panel, in the Yogi strip, with the Smith and Yogi silhouettes, is very imaginative. There's no real reason for it. The rest of the strip is set in daytime, without even an indication of the sun going down, or something like that. Instead, its just an odd juxtapositioning of the two heads.
Elekid, you really oughtta get that cough checked out.
Radio with pictures? It'll never work!
Rummaging through some old research notes, I found a quote John should like:"There is a mania among people these days to have 'good' television for children, and by good they mean vapid, inane, safe, saccharine, unexciting, unstimulating, ultra-puerile, and unentertaining.... Surely children are getting enough education in their classrooms.... Why not let them swing a little?" "Children's Television 1969" The writer was awarded his Master of Humanities degree by the University of Chicago for the thesis quoted above.
There's no way Bill and Joe actually drew that thing..... is there?- trevor.
I love that yogi strip, too. Those teenagers are fantastic. Any idea who drew it? It's not that Howie Post guy, is it?
Trevor, I think that might have been drawn by Gene Hazelton.
The "little person" in the Popeye costume is Shorty Hinkle, a clown on the Clyde Beatty-Cole Bros. Circus for many years.And yes, Shorty Hinkle had six fingers on each hand.Pat Cashinclownalley.net
