2016 Welcome_To_The_Jungle_Cast_Strip_Michael_Pohrer_34

Welcome To The Jungle© Wednesdays roll on featuring selected strips from the previous run for your ocular enjoyment right here. The first few years the strips were very different than what they are now. Eventually all the characters for the feature showed up in previous panels before they were all thrown together as a core cast.

Sailing Takes Me Away To Where I’m Going

Easy Button at no extra charge, Click on the cartoon images to enlarge them.

Woo Hoo! Here’s a look at the final strip of our favorite traveler of the high seas from January 25, 2016. This is the fourth cartoon feature that eventually launched onto the printed pages. It officially launched on April 28th, 2014. Captain Obvious has sailed back into port on permanent leave. Yes, you read that correct. Sadly our Captain has decided to retire. Please Stay Tooned In© right here for a look at the feature which will always be special to us here in the studio. It was no easy feat in these times to have four features appear through the printed pages. There was just not enough print circulation to make the feature feasible to create. We will feature more madness from A Minute With Captain Obvious© through flashback looks. We like his style and will miss writing for our fearless oceanic inhabitant.

During 2019 if your local newspaper doesn’t carry the funnies from the drawing boards in their lineup we are running select strips from the dailies, and weekend strips from the syndicated features Welcome To The Jungle©, and FIDDLESTIX© right here at TOONED IN©. As the schedule has changed up since signing on with a new syndicate.  Feel free to contact your local features editor and request they add the funnies, a little help goes a long way friends.

We hope you will stick around to see more of our worthy traveler as he may come out of retirement for a crossover event.

Not likely but always possible.

Addison Morton “MortWalker

September 3, 1923 – January 27, 2018


Still reeling from the Sad News  about the cartooning world losing a legend! Addison Morton “MortWalker,  a World War II veteran who satirized the Army with antics of the lazy private “Beetle Bailey,” died Saturday, January 27 last year. He was 94.

Walker died at his home in Stamford, Conn., Walker began publishing cartoons at age 11 and was involved with more than a half-dozen comic strips in his career, including “Gamin and Patches,” “Hi and Lois,” “Boner’s Ark” and “Sam & Silo.” But he found his greatest success drawing the private “Beetle Bailey”, along with the other denizens at the fictional Camp Swampy for nearly 70 years. The character that was to become Beetle Bailey made his debut as Spider in Walker’s cartoons published by the Saturday Evening Post in the late 1940s. Walker changed Spider’s name and launched “Beetle Bailey” as a college humor strip in 1950.

I had the honor of knowing Mort for many years, and he was a huge supporter of the scribbles from my humble drawing board. Mort created many of the strips that I always turn to first on the printed pages. I will miss speaking with him, he was such a warm and great individual. Simply at a loss. There will never be another cartoonist that will compare to the awesomeness that was Addison Morton “MortWalker.

Ha! I will always smile when I think of my friend. Here is some coolness that Mort personally gave me. It has been hanging proudly in my humble studio since I received it. A great memory that I will always remember is that I would make old school hand drawn birthday cards for Mort. The second image is the inside image from the last card I sent him. Mort as “Sarge” alongside PINHEAD as “Beetle.”

Stay Tooned In! cartoon fans more fabulous nonsense is coming.
