My Little Margie Comic Book

My Little Margie was a popular TV series that ran from 1952 - 1955. Gale Storm was the star. It was a another TV show that came out in a comic book.

I'm not sure how long the comic book lasted but I'm finding out there are lots of comic books based on TV series.

Krazy Kat

I'm not really too fond of this comic but Krazy Kat was pretty popular. The cartoon is often referenced when learning how to make your own cartoon. He kind of reminds me of Felix the Cat as far as his appearance.

Olive Oyl in Thimble Theatre Comics

This is kinda cool. Popeye first appeared in the Thimble Theatre in 1929 and later became the comic strips title.

Here is a 1919 Thimble Theatre strip long before Popeye first appeared. Yep - that's Olive Oyl. Doesn't the villian remind you somewhat of Dick Dasterdly?

In an earlier strip there was mention of Brutus but he was a child. A mean one though. I'll do some more research on the Thimble Theatre (the spelling for theater a long time back) and see if I can find some more characters from Popeye. Olive Oyl seems to pretty prominent in this strip.

Cartoon - Is There Life On Other Planets

There are all sorts of thoughts as to whether there is life on other planets. Sometimes people tend to get irate when people disagree with them.

I thought it would be fun to show how we here on earth might tend to become argumentative when discussing the subject and how the same discussion might be held on another planet.

Check out the video . . . Is There Life On Other Planets?

Drawing Stickmen Can Be Fun

Who has never done some doodling in their life? Put some paper in front of someone and give them a pen and almost anyone will doodle.

Drawing stickmen ranks right up there when it comes to doodling. They are actually becoming pretty popular and are seen in commercials at times. Who hasn't seen people's stickman family?

If you want to get a little creative, sit down and just start drawing. Think of a joke or something and see where it goes.

We're talking stickmen. There are no rules.

Leave It to Beaver Comic Book

I get surprised from time to time when I realize some of the shows I use to watch a long time ago actually had their own comic books. Leave it to Beaver was one of them. Here's the cover from one of the comic issues.
