Its Comical, Part 8: Clean-up Edition

This will be the last installment of the series, so let’s take a look at some of the comics and comic-related pix we haven’t seen before. One of the longest running comics is Dennis the Menace, and we have had a few different Dennises. There was Chimpy, with Deadeye Dick Cheney filling in for Mr. Wilson…

There are other animated series that were not meant for children, such as Dr. Katz, Professional Therapist. I absolutely loved that show, but I didn’t care for the version with loser Queen Nutmeg Whitman’s hubby, Griff Harsh…

One of the most famous animated series intended for mature (or maybe more precisely, older and immature) audiences is South Park. We had 2 episodes here at the Raisin, one starring Joe “Kyle” Wilson, Lindseypoo “Kenny” Graham, Jim “Cartman” DeMint, and Sparky Marky Mark “Stan” Sanford…

…and the other with some other characters from South Carolina who wanted to be governor, U.S. Rep. Gresham Barrett, two-term Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer, three-term state Rep. Nikki Haley (who eventually won), and two-term Attorney General Henry McMaster…

Well, that wraps up our look back at the comics. I think I’ll let Joe BP Barton have the last word…
