Dads are often strict. Moms are often sensitive. Pucks are adventurous imps.
Ah-hah, there it is! I was waiting for this one. Gotta love Toddler Logic. :D
The Toddler must be watching some rival newscast to come up with this inaccurate information.
I wonder if Lupin took the back position to avoid getting marked up. It’s no fun if someone else does it to you. Love the annoyed loaf positon.
I would give anything to be Puck for a day.
I love Lupin curled up (and sulking), sitting on the back of the Toddler’s legs. And hey, it looks like the Toddler is drawing that picture of Puck he did for school! https://www.facebook.com/GeorgiaDunnStudio/photos/a.447790771933015/2254844411227633/?type=3&theater
My guess? The names have to do with whose cat each one is.Mom has PuckDad has ElvisPuck has Lupin
Mystery solved! Next up on “Can You Think Like a Toddler?”, episode 2: “What does he call his little sister?”
“Snowguy” seems fine to me, but I gather that, these days, we are supposed to call them “Snowpersons”. Not all birds are owls, but they probably should be.
This is one of my favourites!
Is Pengo an owl?
This was laugh-out-loud hilarious. I’ve gotten more guffaws from BCN that any other comic strip I’ve ever read, except maybe Pogo (RIP Walt Kelly).
This is another of my all time favorites. When Elvis is the only one happy, you know their world has been turned upside down. I can understand Puck’s disappointment at once again having his boyhood questioned, especially since he’s been told he’s a good boy. Once he realizes he is being compared to the woman he will see it’s not an insult but a compliment. Perhaps if Lupin ever reads or sees a production of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” he’ll understand that Puck would probably have been a more appropriate name for him than Lupin.
Ohhhhh! I love that flashback of Pucky as a ladybird for Halloween! Poor sweetie, he’s always having to defend his manliness. Awww! “Don’t they know I’m a boy?” It’s because he’s so sweet, sensitive and in tune with the feelings of others just a touch more than most males, in my humble opinion. ;-)
For historical context, this was the first strip back after the real life family made their cross country move to California.
Though the line “Wants to hug the moon” appears to be referring to Lupin here, in the original it was all part of one banner referring to The Toddler.
Lupin’s got a real catitude lately
Elvis got that pair of Toddler socks matched. Whew!
I thought Lupin liked to be picked up. Is his stiff-legged stance in panel 10 just because of the whole “Puck” thing?
Toe beans and a chart. Life is good.
Lupin in panel two is just the image of Irate Felinity.
Saw in yesterday that TODAY is Susanna’s Birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY SUSANNA!!!!!
I love the Lupin face-brace in panel 10. We get this from Salem, too, when he doesn’t want our faces so close to his face. “Talk to the paw.”
Happy Bunday, orbsters and orbabies! I love Lupin’s aggravated ears in the second frame. It’s odd to see Elvis grinning and smirking, when he usually so dour. And poor Puck, his masculinity called into question again.
It’s going to be a nice mild Super Bowl Sunday here in Barrie, with temperatures above freezing. On the down side, we are expecting rain and freezing rain this evening.
Elvis seems to have forgotten that paybacks are hell! Next scene: Revenge of the Boys.
Identity crisis among the team today?
Elvis, dignified as ever.
Elvis is not withholding his glee very well. Pucky and Lupin realize that Elvis will be rather insufferable for at least a week.
OMC, I love this strip so much! By that I mean everything… all the earlier ones, the repeats, and this one in particular. I just LOL’d and BWAHAHA’d at every panel.
I have a question – not related to this strip. On this month’s page of the BCN calendar there is something sticking out from under the back of the woman’s dress. It’s white with some pink stripes and a pink pattern of some sort that I can’t make out. Does anybody have a guess as to what it is? Also have to say that I love how the woman is all dressed up for their romantic dinner but the man appears to be in jeans and his sock feet. And of course I love Elvis eating the flowers with a knife and fork!
Ever since my avatar kitty, Max, unexpectedly crossed the Rainbow Bridge last September, I have been without a cat for probably the first time in my adult life. BCN helps fill my need for a kitty fix. Thanks, Georgia for your great work.
Elvis in panel nine looks like he just made it past the bouncer at Studio 54…and is “making the scene!”
Looks like he slid into the panel…cat’s got moves!
I usually just go with “Kitty” none of them seem to mind that
“I’m a boy.” :D
Was Puck a ladybug when he was younger?
I don’t understand “wants to the hug the moon” on Burt’s crawl. Can anyone explain please?
When our daughter was that age there were two species of animals, bears and dogs. Bears could stand on their hind legs. Dogs were always on all fours.
Elvis is gloating big time.
Off Topic: Spreadsheet.
You’re Puck because the Toddler finds you the most lovable cat, Lupin.
But really… who doesn’t want to hug the moon?
Love it all, especially the last panel where Elvis is coming to Puck’s aid.
Wow Lupin got up on the wrong side of the cat bed today. Poor Puck his same old problem nobody understands that he is a true male. Elvis well he is dad cat after all. Nothing wrong with that. Gloat, gloat…
First of all, this is one of my favorites. Second, the mouse on my computer has cat hair in it! I guess the cat shed on the desk, and then the mouse rolled over it…?It was such a hassle to remove.
This was always one of my favorite strips. I love (actual) Puck’s little paw on his hip, annoyed with Lupin.
And with as overly-cautious and detailed-oriented my own dad is, “Dad Cat” is a very apt name for Elvis.
A friend of mine, when much younger, referred to kitties as ‘Keeeeeyyys!!’, as she couldn’t, at the time, pronounce the whole word properly. Admittedly, it was really cute!! :)
I love voice-acting this one.
The toddler has misgendered Mom Cat
I learned long ago from my female friends that they call each other guys, as in “C’mon, guys.” I’ve never heard a woman say “C’mon, persons.”
Poor Puck. The real one, that is. Lupin is younger than the other two, right? Maybe that’s why he’s not a “parent”
