    These “updates” are getting out of hand. Any day now, we’ll see Mutt and Jeff dancing Gangnam style.

    Looks like he didn’t like it

    I thought “Mutt & Jeff” was discontinued before Tom Cruise became famous.

    I’m sure this was originally published before Tom Cruise was born!!

    This one is clearly from the 30’ or 40’s, so yes, the Tom Cruise reference is a mistaken attempt to make it more relevant.

    Mutt may find that throwing out his own personal radio does not prevent broadcasts.

    Reminds me of the fellow who shot his TV because he didn’t like the guy on the screen.

    I wonder who the movie star was in the original.

    That set-up starts with the lineage of specialty potatoes.

    My guess is the original celebrity would have been someone along the lines of Elmer Davis or Edward R. Murrow, (or a young Walter Cronkite), thereby setting up the punch line of "You cant marry him – he’s just a commentator (common ’tater).

    I wish they were not “updated”!

    Me too! How gorgeous do you have to be to rate as a radio pin-up?

    How can Jeff’s “show and tell” 3 potatoes ( frames 2/3) work on radio?

    Back in the days when Radio was King of the Air Waves – it is VERY unlikely that anyone would have been talking about Tom Cruise. My guess is that the ORIGINAL star being mentioned was either Clark Gable or one of the Barrymores!

    A few days ago they referenced Marilyn Monroe. Sometimes they update celebs’ names, sometimes not. Nice job of altering the lettering.
