    Classic Pig misinterpretation. This isn’t as good as a Pastis pun, but it was close.

    Christmas lights sure are pretty.

    There are maybe 25 “essential” movies which kids under 10 should be allowed to see, plus a few more movies or tv programs. Then more can be added as they grow older. But keep it to video, so you don’t get enslaved by the tv schedules of having to watch whatever happens to be on at the station’s choice. This is one reason why I abandon broadcast tv in favor of videos and internets only. My ideal list of essential movies, which varies in my own mind constantly, is a balanced view of cultural and cinematic history. I think it is important for children to eventually read/watch books/movies their parents might not approve of (e.g. Harry Potter type books), because that is only a subjective point of view. Objective information sometimes requires multiple points of view, which might not agree with each other, to be considered.

    TV programs are really just another kind of books. Many tv programs are superior to most books. I myself don’t have television that broadcasts, but I watch videos (which complete the transition to “book with sight and sound” full circle) and would rather binge watch a complete season of some fantasy-sf show than read a Charles Dickens or John Steinbeck snooze fest. At the time when this comic strip came out, good video-tape options included The Wizard of Oz, The African Queen, Singing in the Rain, Mary Poppins, the first 3 Star Wars movies, and the first 2 Indiana Jones movies.

    Immorality is a point of view. One person’s immoral garbage is someone else’s great work of literature.

    The scumbag was her old flame. She dumped Mike and went back to him.

    When I first heard my mother talk about “PETA people,” I misheard it as “pita people;” I thought it referred to vegans who were so obsessed with staying on track that they would swear to eat only pita bread. This is a misunderstanding worthy of Pig.

    Shades of the snowman song from the movie Frozen.

    Robert & Richard Sherman wrote the songs for the movies Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, and Bedknobs & Broomsticks.
