Reminds me of the Flintstones smoking commercial.

It's how it should be done.

Chris Cormier said...

Haha! That's hilarious!

Oh cra. Personally, I'm trying to quit smoking right now. I haven't had a cigarette in 5 days. We'll see if this lasts for good. Don't judge me too harshly if I smoke at a party now and then...

Alberto said...

Smoking = Cool. I personally smoke Winston's, because it's Fred Flinstone's cigarette of choice.

Thats SOO awesome! I love characters who smoke! Theres just something truly appealing to me about that. That further inspires me. I know in middle/high school Id get in trouble because id CONSTANTLY draw cartoon characters and real people who smoked because i smoke myself and id be DYING to get back home and have a cigarette!! The more pissed off my teachers got the more id draw it. I'll have to see if i can find this one story i drew a few years ago that has this deadbeat kid smoking by the school flagpole! The art sucks because I'm bad now but i was even worse then (im trying to learn though)! Just for he helluvit I think I'll scan it someday. To think that i was really planning on actually pitching the idea someday is really crazy. It would never sell. I guess that proves I was "raised right" though.

Geez, what are they smoking, 300's?
I guess cartoon characters like a nice, long smoke break. "I've got more cancer than the average bear!"

Were kids actually supposed to light these things? In today's world this would be viewed as being just as bad as giving a kid a handful of poison-soaked razor blades as a "toy".

It's about as anti-PC as "Hippy-Sippy" candy. Yes, it existed. A hypodermic needle filled with little candy pellets, meant to cash in on hippie drug culture. It didn't last long even back then. "Hey Kids! now you can shoot up just like rock stars do!"

Wow, times have certainly changed! In that case for the better.

Learning how to blow smoke rings is probably more important that actually smoking! Come on kids, lets learn!

Some "special cigarettes" come with Huckleberry Hound to help contribute to his laid back demeanour. ;)

What really bugs me about it is how ridiculously out of character it seems. With Fred and Barney, at least it's plausible, with them being typical human blue-collar workers. With Yogi Bear, it's just... why?

Sven Hoek said...

Dizzny cartoons were full of smoking.

Mick said...

those chairs are outstanding

kurtwil said...

Ahh, how times have changed. Pinocchio's cigar smokin' sequence now comes to mind.

Any idea when the Diz princesses will join the modern trend of women smoking cigars?
