Intermission

The setting sun marks the end of the first act of this episode, which means this is a good place to take a break. I get a lot of great feedback from you guys and one of the things I hear repeatedly is that people who enjoy reading this comic want more more more! Specifically, you have told me that you would prefer to wait longer in between updates if it means that you can read more pages at one time when the updates are finally done. I can't argue with that -- the comic is written to be read at one sitting, and so at your request this comic will be updated only when I have enough finished material to make it worth your while. Expect the next update to the comic in early 2008. I will give you a more specific date as soon as I know it.


About today's installment
For those of you who aren't total cartoon geeks like me and Crane, you can hear a clip of the music he is talking about here. This is the opening and closing music for the Yogi Bear Show. You have to sit through a few seconds of the opening music to get to the clip that Crane is referring to. I hope you like it and that it triggers some distant childhood memory. I know cartoons don't play the same role in everybody's childhood that they did in mine, but what can I say? My childhood was clearly better. Now go play the song and picture the Fire Island sunset fading to black. The Michaels will return in a few months with more obscure Gen-X pop culture references and wide-eyed cartoon characters engaged in sex, drugs and profanity.

I haven't stopped laughing at the:

"Your Beast becomes a Prince! And you're not a Fish anymore!"

"Ew, wait..."

Hilarious. Instant classic comment.

Glad to see this chapter in it's complete form. Sad (call me selfish...) to hear that I won't be getting my weekly fix til early next year.
But I completely understand your decision---and eagerly await more of your addictive series.

Huggles,

Thanks for the childhood flashback! I loved the old HB cartoons too. Thanks for the audio reference. You should make a special Flash episode with music and sound FX! (More work... I know.)

Until 2008!

XOXO,
