A Minor Aberration in Navigation

Here we are again—Sunday, Kelly Sunday. Woosh the weeks just fly by.  Slow it all down, sez I.

The boys are allus aiming for some heavenly body—Moon, Mars, Sun. T'aint no Easter strip, but it'll have to do.

He is US!

Ever wonder what the Pogo strip would look like if it was properly animated, that is to say with gen-you-wine Kelly art and production values?

We received a wonderful link here from our friend Yves, that tantalizes us with what might have been.

This is an absolutely delightful effort by Kelly himself (and Selby Kelly) to bring the swamp alive (even with those wonderful herons winging through the background!). I've always wondered what the proper voices would sound like for the swamp cast, and Kelly himself demonstrates a charming homespun cornpone take as well as lovely narration. The animation needed a few more between cells, but so what. It's bee-you-tiful to behold.

Thanks Yves!

High Class Junk

Things is purty busy round here, so I'm forced to do what I don't like doin'. Namely posting a strip without cleaning it up — bad registration, lumpy colors and bleed through from the other side. I just ain't got the time, so I'm throwing this post up 'as is', so at least you got somethin' for Sunday, Kelly Sunday. I got some great stuff for the middle of the week if I kin jes' get to it.

14 Karat Madmen

Albert is forever swallowing inappropriate things, but really—Miggle's socks?. If you want to see the previous Sunday to this strip, look elsewhere on this blog, posted some time ago.
