I like this little sideline blog... I gotta tv guide from October, 1962, with schedules for the North Carolina region. Here's the Saturday Morning line-up-:7:00 on 11, we got Funtime (cartoons)and at 7:30: Ruff and Reddy; 8:00, Movie on channel 5-:"Bandido" (from '56 with Bob Mitchum)and on 12, Cartoon Carnival. 8:30, on 2: Old Rebel, Pecos Pete; on 6, a light unto my path (religious); and on 11, Felix the Cat (doubtless the ol' translux prod.). 9:00 on 2, 3, 9, and 11 we got Captain Kangaroo (including the Tom Terrific cartoon "Prince Frog"); on 7, Clutch Cargo; on 9 "Deluxe Theater" (cartoons); and on 12, Bugs Bunny (with a run of "Bad Time Story"). 9:30 on 6,7,9,and 12 we take up Ruff and Reddy, yet again. 10:30, Mighty Mouse on 2,3,9,and 11 (including the shorts "the dead end cats", "the jail break", "the hep cat", and "better late than never".) and on 5,Bozo the Clown (cartoons). 11:30 we got Top Cat on 5 with "The Violin player". 12:00 noon, we got Sky King on 2,3,9,and 11. Bugs Bunny again on 5 with "Satan's Waitin'"; and on 9 the variety show Kilgo's Canteen (?)... feels a little like johnland...
Hey, you should scan it and post it!That sounds like a great schedule for kids.
Great stuff, John!
I love this new blog. I like the mix of old an new stuff. It's so cool. H-B is one of those things you have to caricature.
all of the drawings on this blog are freakin' blowing my mind! great stuff, John!
I really love your take on the characters! Did you ever do a wally gator or snagglepuss? they were amongst my faves as a kid!Thanks for sharing all this stuff with us it's awesome! :D
@Rudy Tenebre-The Old Rebel and Pecos Pete! I remember them!! I grew up in Burlington, NC, and their show was the one on which I saw Clutch Cargo, Space Angel, Felix the Cat, and Diver Dan.
These drawings are fantastic! How delicious. I'd love to see you make more HB cartoons!
This is AWESOME!I just got here, from a link on cartoon brew...So Inspiring...thanks so much for making this lovely artwork available for viewing!
I love the distorted mouse with the Dumbo ears and cocked arm.
I absolutely MISS your paint your own cell kits.I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, REALLY wish that Spümco would either release some more, or rerelease the ones that you'd made previously.My god, I LOVE your doodles.The sketches you make while you're on the phone are pretty good too.
