New Ranger Smith Story

PINING AMONG THE PINES
Ranger Smith is sitting in his cabin at his desk pining.
He stares longingly at a picture on his desk and sighs.

"How long have I been out here in this God-forsaken wilderness? Keeping order in the forest. And for what? The bears hate me. The trees drop their mess all over the forest floor. "
Mrs. Smith
We see the picture and it's of a very pretty young lady in her wedding veil. She looks lovingly at Ranger Smith. "Gee, I miss Mary." says Ranger Smith. "How long ago were we married? It must have been 10 years since I've seen her. You know, I think I'll take a break from Jellystone and enjoy that honeymoon we put off."
Just then he gets a call from the park supervisor about a rumor that some park bear is causing trouble and Smith better get to the bottom of it. "Yogi! That's it! I'm tired of getting to the bottom of every bear problem! And it's always Yogi's bottom!


The heck with this, I'm going to go home to Mary and forget about bear bottoms for awhile."

BOO BOO PATHOS

Ranger Smith goes to Yogi's cave and tells Yogi he's had enough of him and his childish antics. Yogi and Boo Boo are in bed. Boo Boo cries when he finds out Ranger Smith is leaving them. "Good riddance to discipline and rules!" shouts Yogi!

Ranger Smith leaves, "Well that's a load off! Now to lead a decent human life with my beautiful wife, Mary!"

So Ranger Smith comes home to find Mary pregnant with Yogi's bastard child and she tries to convince her husband that it's the fruit of his own beloved slow-acting seed, implanted a decade earlier?

Bravo!!! Poor Mr. Ranger, sir, he hasnt had any in 10 yrs. That's why he's always so grumpy all the time. And she's a hottie.

Poor Boo Boo. Now who will keep him from sitting in pine needles, and keep Yogi from whispering inappropriate things to him in his sleep?

In some ways this sounds like "Ranger Smith Runs Wild". Will he undergo a Buddy Love type transformation? Can't wait to see.

Trees leaving their mess on the forest floor. Nice. As with most of your stories, I think the premise is interesting.

Joseff said...

can't wait for the rest of the story! Is it another for your Cartoon Network episodes that got rejected?, i loved the one of the "Rangers Retreat" with the animal costumes, funny stuff man.

I am so tickled by this Ranger Smith story - to see he did have a life before Jellystone - and to see he left behind a hot wife - it's about time Ranger Smith went AWOL - the look on his face while holding the picture frame in first panel is priceless - he's positively beaming! - the wife is amazingly cute - I wonder how Katie or Kali might approach her appearance? - the next five panels are great - Ranger Smith getting fed up and P.O'd while Yogi and Boo-Boo are causing bear trouble in background (Marlo would be great for the BGs for this cartoon). I hope this cartoon is beyond the pitch stage and is being produced, this is a great story, so far.

Ooh, great Ranger Smith story once more!

"The trees drop their mess all over the forest floor."

I love how Ranger Smith actually hates nature.

Seeing the Ranger Smith design you did on this new story, I could notice how this Mr. Ranger design seems like the Tony Rivera's Mr. Ranger design.

More details about this new Ranger Smith story: on this scene which depicts Mr. Ranger stares to his wife's photo, the first thing that comes to my mind, in terms of music score, it's the Carl Stalling's version for La vie en rose (in the violin solo), which's from one of the Pepe Le Pew's shorts (mainly at the moment in which Pepe Le Pew attempts to carress the female black cat Penelope [who attempts desperately to escape from his odor]).

There's another detail to ponderate on this scene where we see Ranger Smith seeing to his wife's photo: Mr. Ranger is looking like Robert DeNiro (due to the facial expression).
