Throwback Thursday: THE CARTOON REBELLION!
In 1993 I was 11 years old. My sixth grade english class was given the assignment to write and construct a short book so I, missing the point entirely, made a comic book. It was called The Cartoon Rebellion. My 2 main characters were a rabbit named Justin and a spikey haired guy named Moe who were dissatisfied with their working conditions at the hands of a crummy cartoonist (ME) and decide to go on strike. Over the course of the 15 page story they are joined by other cartoon characters Charlie Brown, Linus, the spies from Spy vs Spy and others each with their own grievances against their respective creators. It’s agreed that they should take all cartoonists to court so they hire a lawyer (Steve Dallas from Bloom County) and all end up in front of a judge. The Judge is so star struck in the presence of so many famous cartoonists that he rules against the cartoons. Upon hearing the verdict, Steve Dallas physically attacks the judge and everyone gets thrown in jail.
I was given a C on this project. I was only given partial credit since I didn’t follow directions (to say nothing of the fact that I appropriated dozens of copyrighted characters) and was told that I would receive full credit if I followed the assignment and wrote a “real story.” I never did and the C stood.
I haven’t thought of this book in over 20 years but I found it recently at my parents house and upon reading it I still think that it’s really funny. I’m really proud of my sixth grade understanding of the legal system and my suspicion that famous people get preferential treatment, the rift between labor and management and the fact that no matter what my english teacher said, comix are great.
The best part of this book, which sat between Herman Wouk novels in our parents’ living room as we grew up, is that IT ENDS ON A CLIFFHANGER- there’s a “to be continued” and a splash page teasing the action and characters who were to appear in The Cartoon Rebellion II which, Tim, I mean, how funny and amazing would it be to finally make twenty years after the fact?

joe is a funny standup.
Joe is one of my favorite standups in New York right now. The 2nd joke in this is set I heard him do for the first time in May, and is the best joke I’ve heard in years.
