    Good morning™, furries and anti-furries!

    It doesn’t take much expertise to recognize plastic that’s not from the 1930s, but these fake cels are probably not aimed at the serious collector. Who are they going to find down by the food court. One guess!

    Good morning™, set up for bad guy meet up !

    In a 12 panel strip we would already see what’s-his-name and him being recognized as a former Tracyville bad guy. Nice furball graphics in P.1.

    I actually kind of like jury duty—a nice break in my routine. Except the one time it was clear across Tracyville, almost two hours Via public transit.

    Dress in fur

    For him or her

    Kinda strange

    It’s a change

    To each their own

    If that’s your zone

    Give it a try

    Not for this guy

    Over the past while, I’ve been viewing a lot of live court video streams. Often there will be some off-the-record chat between the judge and attorneys during downtime. The other day they got talking about jury duty. The assistant county DA said she was called for a federal jury. Naturally, once she gave her occupation, she was excused.

    New vendor has staked out his turf at the Fanfur Con

    Outer aisle across the way. The far side he is on.

    Narrow focus is his thing. Art of animation

    Glad to offer up his wares. Fat renumeration.

    Judge the costume not the one inside the furry suit

    Some just roll their eyes and sigh. Others think it’s cute.

    Costumed furries far and wide. Let’s not begrudge their fun

    Counterfeiters not allowed. Detectives make them run.

    Anyone dressed like that in public deserves to be fleeced.

    Every time I was summoned for jury duty, I was dismissed before the trials even began.

    Is Dick Tracy going to investigate Eric Graymuzzle’s room in the basement at his mom’s house ?

    Is he the one selling animation cells from the live action Dick Tracy movie?

    “Serve cheerfully” sounds right up my alley. “Gee howdy, fellas, looks as if we’ve got ourselves a case of arson!”Seriously, though, jury duty sounds interesting. It’s the kind of thing we don’t have in my country.

    Another Take  over 1 year ago

    1-JERRY: Hey, Bernie. How ya been? BERNIE: OK, Jer. Say does anyone know what this weirdo, horned lizard is or even WHO it is? This convention is for FUR FANS ONLY.

    JER: Nope. They’ll sell a ticket to anybody these days – gettin’ tough to make a buck. I mean, check out the uni-color geeks they let in over there! No doubt they were looking for the Teenage Mutant Turtles shindig down the street but old Fuzzface took their dough anyway…

    2-FUZZFACE: So…is there gonna be any shootin? DT: All you need to know about that is IF there is any shooting – THE PERP SHOT FIRST! Now – have a look at these.

    3-FUZZFACE: That’s too cornball for this show. We usually get the soft porn look here.

    4- …Sorry. DT: I DIDN’T MEAN THAT CARTOON CHARACTER IS HERE! I meant someone is selling cels like these for big bucks BUT THEY’RE COUNTERFIET!!!

    5-FUZZZFACE: Oh sure. He’s right over there. I’m trying to decide if a shooting will help business or hurt it…OH – WHAT THE HELL – FIRE AWAY GUYS AND LET THE GREAT FURRY IN THE SKY FIGURE IT ALL OUT.

    SAM: Uh, I left my gun in the car. And my bullets too…

    So, essentially the cels, of a cartoon that never existed, are printed on a material that is obviously fake to anyone who has ever heard of cellulose nitrate. Will really stupid people be willing to pay a premium for such an obviously fraud? (And the answer, based on the sale of books with themes even more bogus, is, sadly, Yes.)

    The feline and rodent warriors appear to be staunch comrades-in-arms. No stereotypical Tom & Jerry blood feud there!

    What does Mike mean by “conservator” in the context of Graymuzzle saying that those cels were not appropriate to the period they were supposed to be from?

    Talked with Mike last night, and TRACY is going to be entirely retooled in a BOLD effort to pull in the very aged and very young market!

    Barney the dino will assume the lead, with Felix the Cat as his bow tie-addicted sidekick. Wally Walrus will be the new Chief. The role of Liz will be amply filed by Hoppapotomus, the bunny-eared hippo that JoAnn Worley voiced in THE WUZZLES. And, in a daring cost cutting move, the Teletubbies will do double duty as a Keystone Kops-type police squad AND as a nefarious criminal gang. They just need to be dyed and redyed repeatedly until the fumes start to get to them. Odie from GARFIELD will replace Hemlock Holmes, who recently retired to a pound in Altoona.

    ‘Toon veteran Wile E. Coyote has agreed to come on board on effects and special makeup, bringing a well-seasoned anvil to make sure a new Flattop will be on hand as long as the TTs can stand the repeated headaches. Speaking of whom, one of that merry little band has been ’volunteered’ to soak in vinegar for hours so there can be a new Pruneface on hand for this all-new mix of cheery (depressingly perky) songs and merriment. It’ll make you recall COP ROCK fondly.

    You all will THRILL to the Case of the Counterfeit Gumballs, in which a shady dentist looking to expand his clientele substitutes colorfully painted ball bearings at the new CANDY IS US outlet! You’ll be on hand when Sam, reporting for a routine cleaning, cracks the case (and a molar) and gets his new catchphrase, ‘OWW’!

    He’ll say that a LOT from then on, and a lucrative deal on tee shirts and verbal ring tones is pending.

    In fact,that story shows so much promise that it will fill the entire 300-week first ‘season’.

    So…be there!

    “We haven’t met yet. His table is in the outer aisle across from the food court”. Am I to understand that the Lochner museum is part of a shopping mall with a food court?

    They would have used highly flammable sheets of cellulose nitrate, whence is where the word “cel” was derived.

    I’ve been summoned for jury duty a few times, so I recommend bringing something to do while you’re waiting in the jury room.

    Celluloid, cellulose nitrate, gun cotton, smokeless powder. Any wonder it was banned?

    Here we are at the FurryCon, meticulously portrayed by Shelley, and cheery-faced Graymuzzle (seriously?!) points Tracy and Sam the way to the New Vendor peddling probable fakes in the outer aisle (The Outer Limits?), across from the food court. I think we all know who the New Vendor is [Art Dekko, of course]. But that location sounds to be pretty far from where Eric and the MCU are; maybe slick-haired Art will spot them coming and vacate PDQ?

    I see this cartoon references “furries” and “greymuzzles”. This isn’t much of a stretch. Before joining Team Dick Tracy, Mike Curtis was responsible for a furry comic called ’Shanda The Panda".
