Exit Stage Left, Even!

“Heavens to Murgatroyd!” It’s a bust at a local highway rest area. This is where we find our friend Snagglepuss, we all knew he had a problem. I just wish that the Hanna Barbera gang had that intervention they had been talking about for years now. It’s a real shame…. “even”.

This is number two in what I plan to be four paintings based on these guys. The remaining victims will most likely be QuickDraw McGraw and Baba Louie at the local TJ Donkey Show and maybe Auggie Doggie & Daddy Doggie in court for some “sensitive family problems”. I don’t know if even I have the balls for that one. It might just be a series of three. We shall see. It may depend on the feedback from these guys if i should push it any further. Fun stuff as always, enjoy!

Smarter Than Your Homicidal Maniac

Yoggi

Taking a break from the Cult Cinema paintings but still in the Pop Vein, I felt like doing something to bring out the “Itchy& Scratchy” in me. The thought being what if Yogi actually snapped and made sure he got the picnic basket. I mean seriously, who the hell does the Ranger think he is anyway? He’s dealing with a wild bear in the forest for cryin‘ out loud! I think Yogi’s natural bear instincts have kicked in and what you see is what happens when you mess with bears. It’s not good. Boo Boo on the other hand is still a little unsure because his murdering instincts haven’t kicked in yet. His huge purple bow tie cracks me up for some reason though. So maybe consider this a public service message of sort, if you see a bear in Jellystone National Park, just let him have the Picnic Basket. Time to get off your high horse ranger, should have let him have the f’ing picnic basket. Were you even going to eat it? Jerk.

And for the record can I just say that Hanna Barbera sucks. For some reason I never liked it, I did give it a shot. I think I watched the Flintstones and Jetsons when i was 5 for a bit. But I always felt it was so weak compared to other stuff out there. I felt Mickey, Donald and Goofy owned it, followed closely with Bugs Bunny & Co. I just wish Mickey and them and the awesome violence that Looney Toons had. Anyway, enjoy.

Up next is another portrait of a Hanna Barbera “masterpiece”, Snagglepuss. Oh the possibilities, he might be the gayest cartoon character of all time. ( excluding Big Gay Al of course )
