That Wacky Jim Tyer

Did you ever read the Jim Tyer stories? They seem to be much weirder than the regular Terrytoons stories. Or any other comic book stories.

Someone told me he wrote them himself, which would explain things. They are full of non-sequiturs and cartoony jokes.

I wonder which cats are Canadian?
Look! A dead pup!

One cat gets so mad at Mighty Mouse, that he just grows into Ralph Bakshi in one panel, with no explanation. You can't beat that.
This is extremely kid-friendly stuff. No character arcs, no filler, just fun.Read the whole zany story here!

I thought animators hated crowd scenes...

They hate to animate them.

Tyer should have been given control of Terrytoons' Story Department.

It's always nice to see a blackjack in a comic book. There's not much room for blackjacks in popular culture these days.

They're so unabashedly comic strips, that you can smell the newsprint, even when you're looking at them on a computer.
Is the cat with the mono-brow Canadian?

Damn, this is some crazy stuff - I love it! Are there any Jim Tyer books out there?
