From all your pals in Lattaland (and Frank Zappa too) Have a happy Valentine’s Day…Or not. I guess it’s really up to you. What,do you want today to be boring like all the rest? Jeez, cut loose a little. Broken hearts are for assholes.
“Ah, my little darling, it is love at first sight, is it not, no?”
Hello, gorgeous readers, and hello to the ugly ones too! Have I got a cartoon for you little melon baby collies. This short doesn’t get much play these days, but then again, what Looney Tunes cartoon does? I hate this modern world. At any rate, this short is worth mentioning for shaking up the skunk chasing the cat dynamic by having the object of desire in the form of a jungle cat. It also seems to be that our hero, Pepé actually LIKES to get beat up. You and me both, Pepé. You and me both.
If I said it once, then I said it, well, once. Disney cartoons aren’t funny. 1954’s Donald’s Diary comes pretty darn close, though.
This short displays more cynicism than anything else to ever come out of The Magic Kingdom® before or since. I think another reason this cartoon totally excels, I mean, besides the handsome backgrounds and animation, is that it circumvents the obstacle of Donald’s voice.
Also of note, Daisy Duck has never looked sexier. Qu-Quack! I wouldn’t mind throwin’ crumbs in that pond.
AW! How romantic. This avatard features my good buddy Keith Malley and his lovely lady friend Cat. I am happy for you two lovebirds to the point that it is bordering on jealously. Happy Valentines Day, you @*#, all all the rest of you too!
Man, what can I say about Crumb that hasn’t been said before?
I first discovered Crumb around the time the documentary hit theaters. Well, I was familiar with his name and his work, but come on. No comic shops here in the greater Atlanta area had his comics on the shelves or anything.
Crumb was such a revelation to me as a teenager in the politically correct 90’s. Here’s a guy admitting to some pretty dark stuff about himself in form of a comic. I was outwardly repelled, but inwardly, I was hooked. Through the power of Crumb, I came to terms with the strangeness in me and my taste in women.
Don’t get the wrong idea, though. Crumb isn’t all about spilling his guts and pushing buttons. He can draw. He can draw like no one else. I would go as far as to say he’s the greatest living draftsman. Beat that, super hero hacks. Not only can Crumb draw shapely women and cartoony dudes, he can draw lamps, iceboxes, telephone wires and bodily fluids with the same vigor.
But, like I previously mentioned, this has all been said before. I love you, Monsieur Crumb.
