I had to look this one up. Egghead Rides Again was released on July 17, 1937, making the character “Egghead” 82 years old today. As Wikipedia notes: “Many cartoon historians believe that Egghead evolved into Elmer over a period of a couple of years. However, animation historian Michael Barrier asserts, ‘The Egghead-Elmer story is actually a little messy, my sense being that most of the people involved, whether they were making the films or publicizing them, not only had trouble telling the characters apart but had no idea why they should bother trying.’”
So happy birthday to Egghead/Elmer, and happy hunting, whether it’s for Daffy Duck, Bugs Bunny, or Bruce Wayne!
Barfly doesn’t have even the minimum energy to laugh.
Is Linton’s Dad still the police chief? I thought he had stepped down from the top job. (Claire’s Dad is still the fire chief, though.)
So the Mystery Girls started out as just Lottie and Shauna? Have there always been three Mystery Boys?
Why is Mildred a “beginner” at information pumping? She’s been a Mystery Girl since they started. Don’t they all pump for information?
“Well, I say you live in Chicago and play for the Bulls! Let’s decide this right now! Rock, paper, scissors!”
Well, now we know what sort of guy would name his daughter “Hadley V. Baxendale”. Mr. Ed really is a horse’s ass.
Every cartoonist’s attitude towards Lichtenstein, I suspect.
That was one of my all-time favorite C&H slogans. Nicely done!
Is “Dew-Ball” somehow a variant of “Mildew”?
