No Room in this Perfession for Quackery

Sorry it's taken me so long to post up another vintage Pogo strip, but life's got all kinds of DIS-tractions, don't it? 

This Sunday strip isn't part of my favorite arc, but it's Kelly, it's vintage and it's original Sunday color. Good enough for me, sez I.

Besides, when this was published I was just 2 days from entering this ol' world.

And HAPPY (as happy as it can be, under the circumstances)

Wake Up! Wake Up!

I've had this Sunday strip ready for some time now, but this one skips a week in our current 1952 continuity, and I was hoping to find that missing strip . . . but haven't. I almost scanned it from the Fantagraphics book, but decided not to, and just plunge ahead so that you wouldn't need to wait any longer.

Them Ears is Blindin'!

Who knows why someone thought Rackety Coon Chile was a white kid, but 1952 is still my favorite Kelly year.

Yoicks! Yoicks!

Kelly had a full house when he played the 'cute' card. Cute art, cute characters, cute shenanigans—without being sugary. I can't think of another cartoonist that could out-cute him.

Agin All the Rules of Tellin' a Story

Yay, Pup Dog makes a Sunday appearance. 

What a great year 1952 was.

This is MUNITY!

Again, sorry to have been sparse and sporadic with postings, but getting ready for a gallery art show is a full-time demand. This is a late Saturday night, here, so I've earned the chance to put up another Sunday strip ... and here it is, as it looked in the Sunday funny pages from 64 years ago.

Pogo Primer for Parents

Sorry to be prolonged sporadic in posting of late, but I have an art gallery show that opens one week from today, and I'm nowhere near ready. But in the meantime, our #1 Kelly Korrespondent, Hun, sent over a link that should be of interest to you Pogoholics. A lot of you may have seen this item before, but it's nice to see the whole primer again. Thanks Hun!
