    Well, at least he didn’t say the simpsons.

    This strip has more humanity than Family Guy. Despite the animals.

    I wonder if Seth McFarlane, creator of Family Guy, is a fan of My Cage…

    The only thing I remember from Family Guy is Surfin’ Bird. Oh god why did I only remember that?!

    Only now do I notice how crudely most of the background characters are drawn. It’s kind of cute, actually.

    No animal pun? Family Gull? Family Aye-Aye? Family Rhino? Family Fly?

    Is he relative of Todd McFarlane, the creator of Spawn?

    Over the run of the strip we’d gotten enough e-mails saying that the pun would sometimes ruin the punchline if it was in the last panel, so the vague, sort-of-a rule became if it appeared int he last panel, no pun. The animal puns were funny to me because we would get literal hate mail about them. Like, you would think an animal-pun killed the writer’s family members or something. :D :D :D

    I doubt it. Our fanbase is loyal but small. Although a couple of times when I’ve pitched something at various places I get responses like “You wrote that strip? So-and-so here could not stop raving about that strip when it was running”. That’s always nice.

    Yes it is sad when the parody of a family isn’t funny because you feel you are in a real situation like it.

    Depends upon how low your standards are. I just find it crass.

    Then just do us all a favor and make an attempt to get it back on! Well, I’ve been doing that on the side, but that’s beyond the point. I’ve even got a few customers to read it and they love it! Especially two, one is Norm and the other is actually Bridget. Norm comments on it all the time :D
