Santa's early years of research and development.
I was wondering why my parents said they never got gifts from Santa when they were kids!
It was even worse when he tried using wolves …
Turtles or skunks?
you would be lucky to train a cat to sit on your shoulder, much less……….
Hey, is that Pauly in the harness?
That’s a purrrrfectly awful idea.
Reminds me of a VW ad running in the paper: A dog sled has three sled dogs and one cat hitched to it. The cat is of course sitting down licking itself. The caption is, “Use only genuine VW replacement parts!”
He needed to use more catnip, it would gotten them flying.
Freya could have given him some tips on how to harness cats to a chariot. Or sleigh.
Led by Priscilla, The Pink Nosed Persian.
Pauly would never allow himself to be picked up for this. He’s more clued in to keeping Capt. Ed above water.
hi im new
And the near lead cat is apparently making a commentary of his own.
I assume that these aren’t the Alien cats that abducted Cpn Eddie.
I’ve seen CATs working heavy construction and road work.
Just think if he needed elephants!
You could dangle a mouse on a pole in front of the cats, like the rabbit in greyhound races, but the ride would be awfully jerky: cats don’t course, they pounce.
Santa’s problem is that he forgot to strap the buttered toast to the cats’ backs. If he did that, the cats would instantly levitate, because (as we all know) cats always land on their feet, and toast always lands butter side down.
Stop puss-footing around.
Suddenly a flashlight beam flickered from wall to wall and a frenzy of activity sent Santa on a wild ride around the room.
Santa - you ever try to herd cats? Stick to caribou…
Cat-hate…comics like this should be banned…
Thank goodness he didn’t try pigeons!
Oh, I really hope you’re kidding, yohannbiimu.
I was kind of looking forward to a Danae and Santa Christmas mini-series this year, as Wiley has done some really memorable ones in the past. One that sticks out, when an elf checks out the Naughty list - “Oh, you’re THAT Danae.”
That looks like a scene from Santa Claus and the Ice Cream Bunny. (Google it). (If you want to really laugh your #$% off download it from Rifftrax.com)
how did he ever get that many cats in one place at one time? great toon! LOL!
The mouse trick doesn’t always work.
One evening while we were watching TV in the living room a mouse strolled across the floor right in front of my cat, “Junior,” who was in a “Sphynx” position in the middle of the floor. Instead of going after the mouse, Junior folded his paws under his chest to make way for the mouse (Yes, the mouse was that close to Junior’s nose). It was a scene worthy of Garfield and his mouse-friends.
If reindeer fly, why can’t cats?
Reminds me of a quote I read once
“Cats are smarter than dogs…You can’t get 8 cats to pull a sled through the snow.”
This calls to mind Brooke McEldowney’s little 9 Chickweed Lane jape about Christmas–or perhaps ‘twas only the Iditarod– in July ‘04.
The cartoon was great, and the comments terrific. What a group! Nebulous’ mention of Freya was learned and funny. Reminds me of why I put up with the popup ads.
I know where he got the cats… “http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Pk7yqlTMvp8”
Reminds me of the funniest commercial of all time. The one featuring the cat herders. Don’t remember the product but the commercial was one of the immortals.
My little 3-D brane sees this one in technicolor and panavision and all the other superlatives and it is
Santa was never this dumb, LOL.
@Gerald: As an Alaskan Malamute owner, I can assure you that the dogs enjoy pulling the sled. In fact, it’s stopping them that is usually the problem….
Merry Christmas to you and yours…
“Don’t remember the product but the commercial was one of the immortals.”
Every advertising executive will tell that your not being able to remember the product, just the commercial, makes the ad a failure.
They’re more likely to get the sled to our troops in the “sand box”– so might be the right choice this year?
This reminds me of a “Bizarro” cartoon some years ago that had a similar premise, and one of the cats was saying “We’ll get there when we get there…”
All Santa needs to do is turn on a vacuum cleaner and those cats will fly…
Does Santa refer to the port side reindeer (or cats) as the “Left Wing” and the starboard as the “Right Wing”?
Sorry Wiley, just couldn’t resist.
While we are telling cat stories:
Jam, pictured at left has learned to open the bi-fold closet doors. Then she hides for hours.
I put an 8 lb. dumbell in front of the door, but then I have to move it, so I gave up.
I don’t remember the name of the company either, and I worked for them for a few weeks as a temp worker. The company processed checks, back when more people wrote them.
So that’s how he got all over the entire world in one night… except for where he was trying to go in the first place.
Wiley, love your dry humor.
By the way, is that front (sorry, lead) cat making a Cat’s Cradle??
(I imagine that Mr Miller has that kind of humor & would have the subtlety to include it : )
Biltil said: “All Santa needs to do is turn on a vacuum cleaner and those cats will fly…”
That’s true, the problem is getting them all to fly in the same direction.
Here’s the link for that cat herding commercial
Simon’s Cat has new Cmas clip too. LMBO !!!
What a cat-astrophy!
Who ever remembers any of the commercial products? – I sure don’t (and don’t want to). They are totally wasted on me.
Thanx for the link MrsCalabash – That’s so neat!!
Our 8-month old declawed kitten sent my husband to the ER with so many wounds and so much blood they couldn’t believe it when he came in. The cat had gotten trapped, we rescued him, and he was just showing his appreciation for all our efforts.
I’m also reminded of a SNL skit in which seeing-eye dogs were replaced with seeing-eye cats. The most memorable image was the blind person walking the top of a fence.
