Mr. and Mrs. J Evil Scientist







I loved these characters when I was a kid. I also liked that comic books would take characters that only appeared once or twice in a cartoon and give them their own series!

Peek at a Snooper and Blabber Story Idea

I had no idea Hanna-Barbera devoted this much attention to Mr. and Mrs. J. Evil Scientist. Personally, I love the Peter Lorre impression that Daws Butler added to Mr. Evil Scientist, and Jean Vander Pyl isn't half bad with his wife either. I could have sworn I also saw these guys on a Snagglepuss cartoon once. Yet again, I could be wrong.

and also cool that Mr. and Mrs. could be Gomez and Morticia's cousins after mating with Frankenstein and Peter Lorre. Lo and behold their son grew up to be Milton the Monster and the rest is history.

I concur. I'd love a Bigelow Mouse comic.

The kids comic books of today can't hold a candle to the Harveys, Dells, and Gold Keys of four to five decades ago. You're right, K. Modern entertainment providers HATE kids.

Never seen these characters before.

At some point, the Flintstones had some kind of Addams Family rip-off neighbors, didn't they? What the heck was that about?

When I see you post this stuff it lets me know how utterly spoiled I was that I was a kid whose dad owned more than a quarter of a million really, really cool old comic books. I doubt there was a comic book published between 1955 and 1969 that I at least didn't take a look at. I recall really enjoying the MR. & MRS. J. EVIL SCIENTIST comic. Also around the same time I was reading the CAVE KIDS comics and MELVIN MONSTER, THIRTEEN GOING ON EIGHTEEN and anything by John Stanley that I could drag out of the boxes or my dad's used bookstore. Of course I didn't know who John Stanley was, but I sure knew his stories and his artwork.

I've never seen these before o_0.

The dad looks like Fred Flinstone but with a smaller nose.

I dig HB more now as an adult, than I did as a kid, but I have to say, having enjoyed the Flintstones more after I discovered The Honeymooners and the genius of Gleason, how did HB get away with "borrowing" so much intellectual property? This is such a blatant knock off of The Addams Family its a wonder they were not sued.

I think I should pitch a new cartoon comic featuring a talking sponge and his starfish pal. I'll call it Bob the sponge and his pal, Paddy the starfish.

COOL! I've never heard of these characters!

Also, is that a film noir Snooper & Blabber frame?

Seeing the Addams Family in a pastiche of Ed Benedict's style is… interesting!

Josh Herubinski said...

I LOVE your taste and style!!!!! I was fortunate enough to grow up having my nervous system imprinted by the Ren & Stimpy cartoons you created & worked on... ONLY the episodes you worked on. Every episode after that seemed like a caricature of your original work.

This might be/iz the wrong way to reach you with such sincerity, but.... I understand there's no way you haven't gotten this type of comment a few THOUSAND times before but here it goes anyway: I LOVE EVERYTHING YOU TOUCH. Now that that's out of the way, I'd like to mention the fact that I LIVE NEAR YOU AND WANT TO HELP YOU IN ANY WAY POSSIBLE!!!!!!!!!

Yea the Flinstones had some kind of ghoulish neighbors, in the original series. Then when they made some new version of the Flintstones, they had another set of ghoulish neighbors called the frakenstones.

Yawn, yes, the 'Flintstones' had Weirdly and Creepela Gruesome. The show had passed the shark stage by then.
