Cathy thought that this was a very funny cat photograph. His name is Tucker, and we love his look of anticipation and the subtle touch of the fork and napkin on the left side. The little fish name tag seems to suggest what this kitty wants for dinner!
Felix is from 1-22 to 1-28-1933 this time. The Sunday page features Felix making a Northwest hero out of himself as he dons a borrowed pair of shoes, then accidentally lures a lot of game animals to the hunter’s cabin. In the dailies, Felix is still trying to quell the romance between Danny Dooit and little Doris. I like the cheap Scotty dog joke in the 1-27.
Myrtle is from 10-25 to 10-31-1948. I like the 10-25 as Myrtle squirts Sampson with her father’s fountain pen and quips that she’s “writing off a few debts”! Dudley Fisher’s poses are beautiful in the 10-30 as Susie hugs Freddie for bringing her flowers, she’s leaning so far over that she’s nearly off-balance. The Sunday page is a Halloween special, the little ghost that appears to Slug in the right hand panel, and Hyacinth the cat looking into the apple tub are nice touches.
Krazy is from 2-1 to 2-6-1943 this time, War time. Ignatz combats the blackouts by painting Offissa Pupp’s buttons and star with phosphorous paint, Ignatz faints dead away over “synthetic” coffee (probably Postum) and Joe Stork delivers a “bindle” to Offissa Pupp by mistake due to the blackouts. Mrs. Kwakk-Wakk thinks that Pupp is kidnapping an infant! In Coconino County, the World War Two restrictions, rationing and blackouts are the stuff of Komedy.
