Rabbit Bye Bye Bun Toons. No Yay.

We bunnies stick together, mostly because we can’t get this horrible gooey stuff out of our fur.

I try not to pass gas at a polite dinner party, or police cruisers on the highway, but there’s no denying the passing of a era with the discontinuation of fellow bunny creator, Matt Groening’s LIFE IN HELL strip.

At least the name BONGO lives on in the comic company that publishes the Simpsons (and occasionally employs me), and the name Akbar lives on as a really cool font.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Here now your Matt Groening Bunny Bonus Moment.

When I did my first Simpsons comic, lo those many years ago, the editor asked for a photo of me so they could “Simpsons-ize” my portrait in the back of the Halloween issue.   Because I’ve always been a bunny, I sent them a photo of me in a bunny suit.  This is the image that ran in the back of TREEHOUSE OF HORROR #8, drawn by Bill Morrison, I suspect.

The Ty-Bunny, disguised as the Bongo-Bunny, on the inside of a Bongo Comic.  The universe collapses upon itself.

For last week’s Bun Toon, click Sherlock Holmes above.

For every Bun Toon ever, click the bottomless rabbit on his furry bits.

My latest issue of the Simpsons is out

Oooh, that's a quality comic book right there.

And of course, I expect you to rush to your local comic store and buy it.  If you can’t find a local comic store, simply find a local citizen with a copy, and steal it.   Yes, you heard me, steal it.  As long as you’re stealing it from a civilian, and not from a store, I’m fine with the process of how you acquired it.

The BONGO people have, again, given up the idea of having the creator’s names on the cover, so you’re forgiven if you didn’t know this issue was mine ( I wrote and drew it).  But now that I’ve alerted you, your excuses are over.

Fan out.  Get one.  Read it.  Live life to the fullest.
