    Perhaps hair-on-fire girl was just a supporting actress, in a minor role — or even just an extra. Typically, extras are prohibited from even attempting to speak to the stars during a production.

    Otherwise, I completely agree with everything you said. Good insights. In fact, what I said above supports what you said — the movie cast is not a “family” — unless you mean a hierarchical family, where the stars are the patriarchs and matriarchs.

    Yes, he’s a bit stooped; however, as Crispy Bacon mentioned, he’s not stooped (or squatting) enough to completely equalize the apparent heights. That’s where the “camera” angle comes in.

    “Should they really be the same height? "

    Why not? You could easily stage a photograph to produce the same result. (Hint, if the panels were extended vertically, you’d see that Oop’s feet are well “below” those of hair-on-fire girl.)

    I’ll give you the thing about the extra-long legs.

    Is that the actual ink-blot, or is it just Stephan’s drawing of what he thought the ink-blot looked like? Does the cartoonist/avatar actually have complete control over what happens in the PBS universe? (I’m using “avatar” in the sense that predates computer chat rooms.)

    Rednecks know that rabbits are lagomorphs, not rodents.

    The artwork in panel 2 is superlative! Only the most inveterate (or half-blind) critics could complain about it. The cave beauty’s facial expressions tell a lot (same goes for panel 2, yesterday). Comic strips are a visual medium, and these panels are making the most of that. It seems that Jack Bender still has some chops, with the drawing pen.

    I think Whiskers takes the “dysfunctional orange cat” thing to a whole new level.

    The comics business is like any other mass medium — and they’re all like a lottery. Most comics artists don’t make much money. A few become filthy rich.

    For instance, Jim Davis, who does the Garfield strip has a net worth of over $700 million. Garfield merchandise grosses nearly $1 billion/year in sales.

    Dan/Beardo is obviously talented. One day the financial rewards may follow. Then, he’ll be able to hire someone else to whine in his beer for him.

    Men and boys should avoid soy milk — it’s loaded with phytoestrogens.

    I just read the Sunday Sept. 21 strip; and the joke about the slang language doesn’t appear. Obviously, this is a “gag-a-day” type of strip, which was easily deleted for the Sunday strip. It’s a good technique (inserting a gag that isn’t necessary for the continuity of the serialized story) — even habitual critics should agree that it’s better than simply repeating panels in the weekday strips. Or perhaps not.
