That story reminds me of the Yogi Bear cartoon where Smith takes a vacation in Florida, and Yogi and Boo end up following him! I'm assuming that was an inspiration, eh?
Boy, is Ranger Smith gonna get a big suprise, the key word being "big."
It's not a dirty story, if that's what you mean.
How many HB animators used those mirror-image boots? I was watching an Augie the other day where Ken Muse drew a cop with them.
I find the story quite funny John but also shows a darker side to Ranger Smith. Honestly why would Ranger Smith be so preoccupied with his job that it would take 10 years just to see his wife. It makes me think that Ranger Smith is hypocritical he enforces the park rules but wont obey the rules and responsibilities of marriage and actually get to see his wife much more often. Being obsessed with your job over your wife means you have a lot of character defects.
And then he goes home and finds out his wife is all fat and surly and oh boy, his life takes a turn for the worse!
Poor guy never gets a break.
This is going to be a great story. I remember an episode of Top Cat were officer Dibble could have a vacation if he breaks a record in the police department. At the end he gets sick, but the Top Cat gang end up helping him, so he can win the deserved vacations. This is going to be great. I can wait to see it. Great work like always.
