Adams, it’s not “April Fool’s Day” yet!
There’s a butt crack in your belly.
I can’t say I’m a fan of Family Circus, but having Dilbert ignore Billy’s punchline to call security is pretty funny. I guess this was an opportunity for Keane to show a slightly edgier sense of humour.
First time they had a guest artist?
I don’t now read Family Circus. But I have nothing against it. It’s good at what it does. It makes people laugh.
What I like is the gesture of respect and trust made by two pros to each other.
Like the necktie on the little boy A LOT.
So that’s why your pointy haired boss cancelled bring your kid to work day!
I presume that Scott drew a comparable one for Keane? Does anybody have a link to it? remember when it was?
Was it something you ate Dilly….?
I truly enjoy intermixing of different cartoon characters in some of these strips. I would love to see Dilbert meet Andy Capp. How would Cliff and Andy get along?
I almost forgot about family circle. I wonder what ever happened to lil Abner and Dick Tracey. In Montana we had Rick O’Shay too. I sort of miss them.
Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss :-))
In another strip, he could call for a security blanket.
Is his last name Psaki?
Who did this? I Dunno. Not Me.
Nice touch with Billy’s tie.
What is this, Bring Your Antithesis to Work Day? :)
I would sic Dogbert on Billy.
I love Billy’s tie.
As some people have already mentioned (and of course you can google far more details than any of us can provide here), this is from 1997 — 04/01/1997, to be exact. I had the original pages from New York Newsday and The New York Daily News, and before they deteriorated completely I scanned them to my computer. In all, 46 comic strip artists collaborated on this gag, where they drew each other’s strips.
Gotta go with Dilly on this one: call Security on those Keane characters, always tracking up the place and cloying our sensibilities!
This is great! For some reason, it reminds me of a joke of sorts that a coworker tried in the past. We had work IDs with pictures that we had to wear. He replaced his picture with one of his 4-year-old nephew. We thought it was hilarious, but Security was not amused Ah, good memories!
