I almost typed his name as “Fast Eddie,” for all you classic video gamers out there.

So the other day, on one of the free streaming TV apps, I ended up watching this Hagar the Horrible cartoon, based on the long-running comic strip. I hadn’t seen this before…in fact, I had no idea this animaated version of the strip even existed. Apparently it was a one-shot special which aired on TV in 1989, which feels awfully late for this, to be honest. But, it’s got a few good jokes in there (particularly regarding Lucky Eddie’s ejection from Viking School) and the voice work is nice (for you fans of the robots that transform, Hagar is portrayed by the fella what does Optiums Prime).

And, to tie it all back to the post at the beginning of the week, it reminded me that amongst the comic strip reprint books I had as a young Mikester, there was at least one Hagar book that I remember really enjoying. It really was a fun, amiable strip.
