Nothin' Abaft the Foregammon Bowsprit Two Points Off the Starboard Gam

Well, I thought last week's post seemed a bit familiar. Turns out that I posted it quite some time ago, and not realizing it, I scanned and cleaned it again. Sheesh. 

Well this week's strip also was posted some time ago, but this time I was savvy enough to find it in my archived files. I'm reposting it here to keep continuity going with the current arc. 

To make up for this repeat, I have some nice material to share later this week that was sent over by one of our great Friends-in-Kelly.

Nossir! I Was the Hero! He Was the Ball!

Who else but Kelly would write those words for a comical strip? 
No one before, no one since.

LLK!

Yoo Hoo! M'sieur le Butch!

Since our brick-throwing cat named Butch took leave of the Sundays, I thought it'd be fun to get a glimpse of him over in the dailies and how he spoils Pogo's usual good nature.

I love how Kelly can fit a detailed automobile into a daily panel!

It's Not All Beer and Skittles

Sam, cat and gypsy moth exit stage left. Enter Albert.

These current characters have been fun, but I was kind of missing Albert, if not the others, even if it had to be a football story line to bring them back (Kelly's sports stories could get a bit repetitive). 

This strip was a bear to clean up, taking me longer than usual, but it's always swell to get one more strip archived.

Nimble Fingers of Patagonian Maidens

This Sunday's strip that I clipped, oh so many years ago, wasn't too bad for bleed-through marks, but as ill luck would have it, it had a fair amount of printing press dirt marring it. To add injury, it was also torn here and there. But thanks to the miracle of photoshop, well, here ya go!

Long Live Kelly, I allus say!

Whew, it's good to know these aren't really skinned canines...or at least so sez Seminole Sam...hmm...

Yonder Behold


September 7, 1969

This strip took extra long to clean up due to bleed-through from the other side, but the show must go on. And this show is a little creepy, 'cause of those wigs for dogs. Notice that Sam doesn't deny Beauregard's accusation of skinning his pals.

No other comic strip came close to such dialogue as Kelly gave us.

Below is a pic of a Komondor, descended from an Aftscharka. One wonders if Kelly had a personal history with such a dog.

Fleein' From a Varmint!

No time to say much this week...just this: 

Gleek! Gleek!
