Perfessional Duty Calls!

These boys are always doin' something re-dickledockle! This is a fine looking Sunday strip from so long ago, thanks to David Burd and the Tony Peters Collection! One of these times I'll take the time to tell you about that collection.

By the way, I dedicate this Sunday strip to Larry Kuenning, who took the time to write a nice email with some information. Thanks Larry!

Happy Sunday, Kelly Sunday!

A Old Negative Proverb Somewheres

Kelly could make each and every panel fun to look at and read, which is of course the objective of a master cartoonist, Kelly being strip-meister of them all.

Long Live Kelly

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.
