    Did you know that most Hanna-Barbera characters wore collars and ties so that it would make it easier to animate their heads?

    Sad but true.

    Hanna – Barbera was minimalist animation. Many of their cels were of just one body part!

    I am nearly 73, so I recognize the old TV shows and every so often Jim hits the nail on the head. I read the first three panels yo my wife and middle-aged daughter and my daughter said the same thing Baba Louie did without even seeing the strips. You’ve given me some great hours of observations, Jim. Thanks, my friend and God bless you for your alertness and courage to speak up in such a friendly way.

    “Hey, Baba Louie! Y’all right?”
    “S’alight” [slam]

    Anybody have a clue what the inspiration was for that little ending exchange? Hint: think of a certain early popular variety show.

    Good observation, Mr. Gilchrist.

    .
    About 5 years ago I quit watching most TV. Just couldn’t handle the violence and other garbage. I watch METV while running or watch an old disc while running, but that’s about it.

    Senor Wences. Also the Mexican dub of Quick Draw was supposed to be really classic.. Quick Draw as a dumb Tejano and Baba Louie as a chilango(Mexico City person).

    There is a lot of good programming on Hallmark, the History channels, Science, HGTV DIY and a few others.

    the difference of ‘cartoon’ and ‘real’
    i wonder if the viewing of the ‘real’ is the cause of a lot of the disconnect and non-interaction of people today with the real world around them?

    In the 1950’s. you had Dr. Wertham infantilizing comic books, to protect children from bad things. Somehow the whole idea of sparing children from imaginary violence on cartoon shows, has evolved into today’s Social Justice warriors working to stop people from having access to video games they find distasteful. It seems no generation is safe from social do-gooders who wish to protect us from ourselves.

    Sorry, Guy, but this just isn’t accurate. If this were any time from the early 1970s to the late ‘80s, when these ultra-draconian restrictions were placed on TV cartoons and old theatrical shorts were being censored on network broadcast, this strip wouldn’t be all that far from the truth. But longstanding restrictions against violence and slapstick were blown down HARD starting in the late ‘80s and especially in the early ’90s, as the watchdog groups lost their teeth and more and more series began to break free of the shackles. And it’s all been a steady “escape” process ever since. This strip depicts a reality that isn’t true anymore, thank goodness.
