Sometimes you just have to link to a page of sound clips from a Pete Puma cartoon.

Given to me by Employee Aaron is this fine example of science journalism:

He’s a card, that former employee Aaron.

And given by me to pal Dorian was a bottle o’hooch with a custom label featuring Dor’s favorite character. You can see the actual bottle at Dor’s site, and right here is a better look at the label itself:

In other news:

  • Bully, the Little Stuffed Bull, is just about to wrap up 365 Days of Hank McCoy, but get a load of this new thing: 365 Days with The Guy Freaking Out on the Cover of Action Comics #1. Fantastic.
  • It’s time once again for another installment of Nobody Else’s Favorites…gimme a D!
  • Here’s the full original art for a very depressing Christmas story, illustrated by Rick Veitch and written by the late Steve Perry.
  • For no good reason whatsoever, Employee Aaron and I like doing impressions of the relatively little-used Warner Brothers character Pete Puma (as voiced, back in the ’50s and even ’til today by Stan Freberg). And that’s why I’m posting this page of clips from the Pete Puma cartoon “Rabbit’s Kin.” Enjoy.
  • P-Tor over at Sanctum Sanctorum informs me that there is are a series of fundraising auctions for Bill Mantlo, the former comics writer who was seriously injured years ago, and now needs full-time medical care. All the pieces feature Rom, and some of the contributing artists include Zack Soto and Mike Allred. You can also the see the artwork here.

    Um… I hate to correct the BEST TYPO EVER, but it’s “Sanctum Sanctorum,” not “Sanctum Santorum.”

  • Mikester says:

    Got El Santo on the brain, I guess. Fixed now!

  • I’ve always liked his screeches.

  • JRC says:

    Gotta soft spot for D-Man myself–as it seems a lot of the commentors @ Nobodys Favorite do–he had a good sad/poiniant bit in “The Pulse” that basically laid out his mental problems but kept him mostly intact as a character.

    Kudos on those Pete Puma clips. I’d been meaning to dub off the little bunny’s voice for years now, and slow it down to see what he’s really saying. Not surprisingly, he’s speaking actual dialogue that fits the scenes. What is surprising is that he’s got Daffy Duck’s voice.

    Even today I will proclaim, apropos of nothing, “Tea gives me a headache.” Much to my wife’s delight. And by “delight” I mean “dismay.”

    Thank you for the best almost-birthday gift ever.

  • Mike says:

    Actually, through the magic of the YouTubes, you can watch the entire cartoon with the bunny’s voice slowed down:

    “Heelp! He’s going to cut off my ears and fry my tail! Heellpp!”

  • Many thanks for the link-love, Mikester!

    Any funds that can be raised for the benefit of Bill Mantlo’s care would be appreciated by anyone interested in original artwork of ROM: SPACEKNIGHT.

    Hey… while driving to get my original artwork scanned for the auction,
    I got into a car accident and totaled my vehicle.
    I gave til it hurt!

    AND I’m also bidding on pieces, so… c’mon folks. There’s one more day left of auctions on many pieces.

    Oh, as for the typo. Don’t sweat it.
    I can’t tell you how many times I’ve mistyped it myself.
    Heck, just now in the “leave a reply” info fields, the letter “V” kept popping up in there.

    Maybe by “V”isitor ALIEN mind-control.
