Deadline Doom Bun Toons! BOO! @#(*&!

xmas logo

‘Tis the season to placate editors.

The deadline is not just looming, it’s zooming past, and I don’t have five spare minutes to sleep or eat without drawing, so I certainly can’t draw something else….The Bun Toon must re-run this week…I’m out of choices.

Here’s two of LAST YEAR’S holiday themed Bun Toons to satisfy your ravenous appetite for rabbit based cartoon stories.

See you next week, when HOPEFULLY I’m a little caught up.

In theory, that Bun Toon above works just as well with Mueller as with Santa.

And now, this:

Merry non-denominational holiday season to you and yours.

Moo! Bark! Howl! Bun Toons! YAY!

Four legs good.  Two legs bad.  Screw the penguins.

It may be the information age, but there are so many mysteries yet unsolved….

Someday we’ll find out of the critters have souls.

After we’re done eating them, I mean.

This is the oldest of my many, many Walt Kelly ANIMAL COMICS I’ve picked up over the years.

You can see proto-Albert and proto-Churchie in the drawing.  Pogo, one assumes, is off sleeping somewhere before his debut.

I’m still crazed for Kelly and Pogo, but haven’t picked up any new issues for a while, as they’re no longer dirt cheap “kiddie comics” that no one wants, like they were when I was young.  Apparently Golden-Age “animals” are popular now.

By the way, Flounder, like all flatfish, have what is called the “wandering eye mutation”, one of the more controversial elements of the evolution/intelligent design debate.  Once a joke gets explained, it’s no longer funny, so I’m explaining it here, long after it wasn’t funny to begin with.

 

Even More Holiday Bun Toons! YAY!

I’m not relenting.  It’s gleeful holiday joy from here on out.

The rabbit is sketching furiously at a one-day Comicon in Toronto today, come down and see a real live, fuzzy-eared cartoonist at the Convention Centre on Front Street in the Big Smoke– if you DARE!   Until then…

If I have one message to share during this season of peace, it’s that we should all take the time and really ball-kick someone who deserves it.

Merry-o, everybody.

Ty the Guy OUT!

Remember when this was supposed to be funny?

Here I am, wearing my fine Christmas Hat.

I don’t care that’s it’s been a lousy year.  I’m having Christmas season all month, and you can’t stop me.    It’s my favourite month of the year, mostly because of the cheery X-Mas festivities we do up here in the Great White North that might be unfamiliar to our southern neighbours.  Let me explain…

Who didn’t know Santa was a Canuck?  Show of hands?

Ty the Guy OUT!

Is it just me, or is more going on, metaphorically, with that broom than I want to know about.  And where did all those snowballs come from?

And now…for your BONUS Christmas Story…

This year’s #4 position, BOTH the most popular and the least popular, come from the last couple of weeks.  It was a wild swing in readership from one week to the next this December, but that’s standard around here.  You fickle monsters make me paint my backside and dance, and sometimes you love me, and sometimes it’s head first into the mud holes.

Not that I’m complaining, mind you.  I know how complaining comic book artists get treated on the internet….

For example…

THE LAST CRUSADER

For those who don’t recall this tempestuous teapot, back at the beginning of December, a comic book artist (of my generation) named Pat Broderick had a word or two to say about cosplayers ruining conventions for people who turned out to be the same age, height and weight as Pat Broderick.  It was something about women in skimpy outfits blocking aisles, not earning their place, and generally being on his lawn when he clearly wanted to get them off his lawn.

Pat’s probably a wonderful guy, and the backlash was more about how inelegantly he complained about getting older, than any real animosity towards him, but for god’s sake, don’t wear any odd hats around the man…he’s nervous.

Our #4 LEAST favourite Bun Toon was the following week.   My fame and fortune crumbled and died in a scant seven days, and all because I cut off Santa’s foot.

the christmas the elves forget

I’ve learned my lesson.  No more hurting Santa Claus.  To make it up to my emotionally damaged readers, here’s one of my MOST popular Christmas Bun Toons from a couple of years ago, in which I do not hurt Santa at all, except for one or two moments in the “agonizer”.

MOMENT OF DOOM WEBSIZE

See you tomorrow, for the THIRD most and least popular Bun Toons of the year….neither of which will be from the month of December, I promise.

I didn’t want to be the one to break this story, but there’s been a lot of controversy lately, and only the actual truth will put the rumours to rest.

north pole babylon websizeI’m sorry if there were any kids reading this.  But we all have to grow up and face the real world some time.

Now, today’s amusing ponderable…

The winter solstice is upon us soon, and, unless that Mayan Calendar is to be believed, Christmas is leaping up quicker than a tiger at a steak convention.  For a half-Jewish atheist from Canada, it’s a special time of a year for me and my family.  So I share…

I wonder if the snow falling on this Bun Toon will put out the fire in Lucifer’s heart?  We can only hope.

Here now, your BONUS Satan Comic Book Christmas!

son of satan 1It is not well known, but the SON OF SATAN comic book produced by Marvel Comics in the mid-seventies was the result of a typo.  It was originally going to be marketed as “SON OF SANTA”…
