Jimmy's Gifts

The most generous man in the world is walking along his humble abode, humming a happy tune.

"Dum de dum, de dum
bibbity boppity poop
iptee ooptee doop
dee yada da dadda da plop..."

He meets up with his idiot nephew. "Here ya go Lad, I bought ya a present!" Jimmy likes presents indeed. He tears it open with vigor.

Jimmy wonders what the gleaming object is. "Ya like that, son?" asks George.

Jimmy inspects it with acute animal senses. "That's your first knife, boy! All red-blooded nincompoops need a sharp object to carry around with 'em!"
Jimmy tests it's wind shearing weight.
He's getting a feel for it! George slyly coughs "A-heh-ahem!"

"I gotta another present for ya!" he sings...

To be continued....

On my seventh birthday, my uncle proudly gave me my first pocketknife. I promptly lost it at the carnival.

I remember my parents making me call him that evening, to explain to him that I had lost the knife he gave me. He hasn't let me live it down, to this day.

I hope George has a firearm for him. Also that knife looks more like a sword. lol

Is it an officially licensed Blen and Kubercheebie T-Shirt? XD I expect this to end with Jimmy stabbing himself [or someone else], but if I know Mr. Kricfalusi, I know he wont take the expected route. And if he DOES, he'll still make it funny.

BTW, do the profits from the new Ren and Stimpy shirts being sold at Hot Topic go to you? A portion of them?

ajajajajjajaja his finger!

Trey Brown said...

Haha george always compensates for his poor parenting with his coy expressions! A-ok!

Isaac said...

The knife-sniffing and the finger-splitting are awesome.

OGB said...

Lol...Jimmy is going to have alot of fun with that sword.

John,
My very favorite feature of your blog is seeing a story develop before our eyes. I would imagine that you find this way of working puts your creativity into overdrive as you avoid being predictable as the story continues.
Thanks and see ya soon.

i like the split finger haha

RooniMan said...

Nincompoops get the best gifts.

Kingfish said...

YES! Jimmy and George!

Damn that's a sharp knife.

Steve Hogan said...

I love it when John K's characters scat.

Rusty said...

If George gives him more weapons to play with he will tear himself in half.

Vauben said...

Knives, lawnmowers, malfunctioning can openers...

Jake Thomas said...

When ever George Liquor says, "You like that?" it kills me.
The second gift is a sewing machine so Jimmy can sew up all the manly cuts he will accidentally give himself.

Vauben said...

And one more...car doors.

Ryan G. said...

That would be funny if while Jimmy is sniffing the knife he slides it across his nose, cutting it off..

John, you really should consider doing another comic series or even children books.

You've already got enough material for a trade paperback. Since individual comics have lost their luster with people a nice perfect bound collection of these would be welcomed. Plus you can get it into bookstores along with "specialty" comic shops, so the Joe Average can pick it up too.

Also, a hardcover edition at 3X the price with a signature plate and a "sketchbook" in back would make a great gift for the ultimate John K. fanboy (like me).

Wouldn't Dark Horse be interested in publishing your work again? If not, I'm sure some other company would be interested.

These are all too damn fun to keep relegated to cyberspace. I want to read these to my son at bedtime.

this is awesome

Severin said...

I hope it's a band-aid.

Dave Jacob Hoffman said...

Yay! More cartoons!

Roberto González said...

This looks promising!

Carmine said...

OMG! LOL.

George Liquor is the best. His expressions are always so specific and familiar, its eerie. Lets just say he reminds me alittle of my old man...thats probably why I responded so much to "Dog Show" when I was kid...it was like, finally, someone recognized the insanity!

The Butcher said...

If these never get made into shows, you should just put out volumes of these for people to read like comic books.

Niki said...

Wear the wrong colours? You get cut!
Step on my shoes? You get cut!

G'Tron said...

I totally cracked up at George being identified as "the most generous man in the world," until I realized it was absolutely true. In all these years of George Liquor stories, I can't think of a single selfish thing he's done. He doesn't spoil his nephews, sure, but he's shared everything he's ever had, from the bugs in his light fixture with Jimmy to his entire home with the lower life forms he feels he was put on Earth to protect. The man even baits his fishhook humanely.

God, I wish George Liquor could be my uncle! *SOB*

Sven Hoek said...

George Rules. And how long before Jimmy slices his own head off?

Sven Hoek said...

Oh yeah, Ren scatting was the coolest.

Boop be doo doo be doop
Doop be diddily do boop

Zoran Taylor said...

@Sven - and what a perfect set-up for a terrified high-pitched scream!
