Heartaches Pilot 2

As Mom and Dad leave, we hear Mom still ranting...

Mom: "You know, it's not that that toy is just old, dirty and disgusting!...
...It's probably covered in germs! It'll give her scabies or something! Probably kill her! Then what will you say??!"

The Curly Fuzz Poodle sits up! Why, he's alive! Alive I tell you! He heard the whole wretched thing!
And he's got something to say about it!
He pulls his string (God it feels good) and a garbled voice box says very slowly: "I........L o v e .................Y o u...."Whoops! That's not it!
He tries again

Fuzz Poodle: "Y'know she's right! I AM old and disgusting! I'm nothing but a worthless...
(repeat) piece of..."
SHTUNK! The pull cord reels back in before he can finish his sentence. He sputters, trying to get the rest out. "PPP...PP...PPP..." (This is a constant frustration for him)
He yanks the string again and finishes the sentence really fast before the cord can retreat back into its rusty hole.

His lips flap frenziedly to get the notion out.
"piece of crap that will probably give Roxy a disease and kill her and it'll be all my fault for being a selfish old filthy bag of moldy stuffing!"
"Whew!" That was a toughy.

to be continued...

You're a genius at eyes. The expressions are just wonderful.

Completely out of morbid curiosity, roughly how long did it take to do those sketches? A week? Five minutes?

I did most of 'em while waiting for a plane. They are pretty hurried actually and could use some beefing up.

But that's what layout is for!

Thanks

A GENIUS way to talk. You made a joke about the functionality of the doll.

I like it!

That poor poodle, having to hear those harsh words from that devil woman.

Oh no! I hope he doesn't run away! Roxy would be so distraught... and on Christmas as well!

Speaking of, Merry Christmas John!

Great idea in regards to the ripcord gag:) I wonder if the poodle has conversations with the "See and Say".

Something about these are different from your other recent notebook page stuff, there's a lot more life to it, just like the triangle choke scene with the duck. DAMN that's good for pen...no fixes and stuff. That, "I love you" pose...two thumbs up!! (p.s King Mo will Rape Choke Fedor)
