    Love Creature Features—can’t wait to see Rover’s homage to “The Wolfman”!

    With the magnifier, now I see it. they glued the corks to their necks.
    Ok, so I’m slow.
    I could blame that on late nights watching Creature Features with Bob Wilkins.
    But I won’t.

    My eyes probably would have been closed for this part.

    @x_Tech

    Thanks, x_Tech, for pointing out what the corks and rubber cement were for. I couldn’t, for the life of me, figure it out.

    Brian – you’ve outdone yourself again!

    @x_Tech: I agree with StelBel. I thought it was an USA thing that I wouldn’t understand.

    Yes, thanks x_Tech! It’s a very cute comic (and the classics are better!), but I missed that detail also.

    The heart of the cartoon art is in the details. Walt Kelly would have a whole different story line running in the lower edge of Pogo.

    Half the fun of the creature features were the skits and videos in between, during the comercial breaks.

    @ wuzone – I think mightaswellbe likes both strips. I certainly do.

    @ mightaswellbe – I don’t know about an online archive, but you can still get the print collections. Might try igopogo.com.

    In Chicago, back in the dark ages, we watched Marvin and “Dear”, then in the late ’60"s there was “Screaming Yellow Theatre”, which begat Svengoolie, later Son of Svengoolie…this all might explain my wasted youth!

    mightaswellbe: Of course, Pogo is history. There was a brief attempt after Walt’s death to continue the strip being done by his widow and two of his children. However, newspapers’ recurring reduction of comics’ size worked against such a finely detailed work of art.

    Now newspapers are fading away (cause and effect relationship not necessarily implied). But online media such as this one and webpages can be as detailed as the cartoonist wishes. One of Walt Kelly’s kids is going this route, starting with a fan site, but ultimately wanting to revive the strip. Try pogopossum.com

    Red has a wine cork collection?
