It's not often that I get the thrill of seeing Pogo art that I haven't seen before in some form. But this Christmas 1960 page, from the collection of David B, showed up at the "Super I.T.C.H." site (International Team of Comics Historians), and indeed it was a thrill to not have recognized it.

This arc is finally and rapidly coming to a close—one more week, I think. Then we'll move on to something else. But until then, today is Christmas and I'd like to wish you a merry one!

A lot of animators enjoy and appreciate Walt Kelly's work and look to his art for inspiration.
I received a nice note from Bob Scott, an intrepid animator working at Pixar, an amazing place to work I'm sure. On the side, Bob creates a fun online comic called Molly and the Bear.
Bob is also a big fan of Pogo—big enough to slip Pogo and the others into his comic strip as a tribute (it looks like a Little Nemo tribute in the last panel as well). Check out today's Molly and the Bear by clicking here, and then subscribe.
Thanks Bob, for the heads up — and best wishes to y'all at Pixar!

STILL we're in the same ongoing arc. Some mighty powerful science goin' on here. And I can't swear that's Waldo the fish in Miz Beaver's arm. Waldo used to talk up a mighty storm and this fish seems mighty mute. Perhaps Waldo expired by this point. Oh don't be sad about that. Fish just don't live long away from mighty moisture.
