I love you just the way you are.
A lesson many in the entertainment media still haven’t learned. Remember a few years ago, when Annie was ‘updated’ to make her more relatable. A twelve year old girl wrote to protest, saying that the character was an icon and did not need to be changed. This from a young person, the very audience the media want so badly to reach.
Somehow, I just can’t picture these guys with tattoos and body piercings
Wonder what generation that was?
I’m guessing this was in the 1950s; in panel 4, they look like Ed Norton and The Beaver.
I’m 17 years old… And I love Mutt & Jeff for who they are.
A very serious “error.”
@#6Good to see you back on the grid, pal.
Wonderful! I love Jeff’s little “helicopter” thingy on his cap in frame 4!
Never mess with a good thing.Look how New Coke turned out.How many B&W classics have been colorized lately?
…Exturk , I’m glad to see (I assume) another person who doesn’t entirely like the colorizing here !!!!!!!!!!! :-) BTW , have the present-day strips been re-lettered , as well ??? It should be said , however , that Little Orphan Annie got discontinued as a new strip in the Seventies , going to reprints then , and coming back as " ANNIE " only after the success of the musical ! Tomorrow , tomorrow… If you subscribe to this strip , sometimes you’ll get a B&W version in your mailbox , although I’m unsure if that’s just the colored version with the color still there , just shown in B&W… M&J’s appearance make me think of the " earlier " 50s and Jack Kerouac and NeallCasady (now that the ON THE ROAD movie is coming out) !…
