Welcome To The Jungle© Wednesdays 


WOW! 30 years already and still having a great time drawing the funnies. I started drawing the characters at least 9 years before they debuted on the printed pages. Whew, I’ve been creating FIDDLESTIX© characters for over 39 years now and appreciate meeting all the readers during this time.


We sure would enjoy seeing more guest strips from other fellow cartoonists to help celebrate the epic FIDDLESTIX©30th Anniversary milestone in 2018.


2016 Strippers Wanted Draw Fiddlestix

Here’s a glance from the 25th Anniversary celebration for reference material that was created by fellow cartoonists. We supply the template sizes that we work with for strips, splash panels, full page pin-ups. Fairly easy process to help celebrate the 30th Anniversary event.

All the characters from the other features salute ” The Captain” on his brief but triumphant appearance on the printed pages as well we hope to see him return for more High Seas Hi-Jinks. Please feel free to share the funnies with your friends. A Minute with Captain Obvious© The Daily Syndicated Feature debut Friday April 28, 2014. Sadly our favorite traveler of the high seas has retired as of January 2016.

Stay Tuned though I recall our Captain making cameos while at the drawing boards.

We will continue on with our special TOONED IN© FEATURE that showcases the feature films that SVENGOOLIE broadcasts to the masses on his television program!


During the upcoming weeks we will finish off installments of Monday Movie Madness. Featuring, The fabulous Svengoolie, one of America’s favorite Horror Hosts. Programming every weekend on the MeTV Network.  I thought since I shared some of the art from the drawing boards that was broadcast to the masses through the small screen I would share other art I did for my friend Svengoolie.  Please give a great friend some love and visit his online presence for all the information you need to join in. I’m sure he would really appreciate your support! I know I appreciate everybody that reads the funnies here at TOONED IN©!
