    It’s a really sweet ‘toon. Looks like Mac the Knife. Don’t suppose those lifesavers would do them any good.

    Missing the fact that a shark replaces its teeth all through its lifetime, so it won´t matter that a few teeth are gone by the time it reaches them :p

    They could work. That’s what saved the life of the Sheriff of Nottingham in Robin Hood Men in Tights.

    Just when you thought it was safe to read comic strips with old (VERY OLD!) cultural references……..I wonder how many people have actually ever watched a Shirley Temple movie? I know I never have and never would.

    GodfreyD …


    I’ve watched almost EVERY Shirley Temple movie!


    They were a staple of late night and Sunday morning local TV here at least through the 1980’s.


    If you’ve never watched even one, how can you reject them all?


    Some are silly, some are overacted … how much subtlety can you expect from a 4-year-old? …
    but most, till she reached her teens, are timeless and delightful.

    so does the shark have wings? anyone familiar with the movie knows that the good ship lolly pop was a plane.

    also great platform for many iconic adult actors of the era. one is overlooked almost entirely now, as you certainly know. the great character actor lincoln theodore monroe andrew perry, “stepin fetchit”. enormously entertaining but unfortunately regarded as “uncle tom” to the max, his characterization is seldom available for viewing any more, and is largely responsible for the shirley temple movies being shunned in our time. it’s a shame, and much like the “amos & andy” series, (among others), its disappearance renders our entertainment landscape a bit less “colorful”, if you will…
