Winnie the Pooh



The week starts out strong:

Bo Nanas by Mark Leiknes John Kovaleski*
Brewster Rockit: Space Guy! by Tim Rickard
Non Sequitur by Wiley Miller
Sally Forth by Francesco Marciuliano and Craig Macintosh
Winnie the Pooh by Disney Enterprises

The official credit for the syndicated Winnie the Pooh strip is "A.A. Milne & E.H. Shepard."

Yes, Milne has come back from the dead to write gags as generic as Costco toilet paper. And Shepard (also reanimated) has decided that the Disney versions of his characters are, in fact, much more charming.


*Edit, 1/9. Thanks to fact-checker Charles for correcting this embarrassing miscredit. (In a post about misleading credits, too.) The biggest difference between blogging and real writing is the lack of editorial oversight. Oh, how I would love to have an editor.

If you keep reading "Winnie the Pooh", you'll see the characters acting like total jerks to each other.

Heh...

Keep in mind the "Winnie the Pooh" comic strips are actually reruns from late 1970s/early 1980s.

Uh...you got the name of the cartoonist for "Bo Nanas" wrong. The guy who draws that strip is John Kovaleski.

Does Piglet have Parkinson's now? (Or maybe he's just faking so we'll vote for stem cell research...What a jerk.)
