Kirby Your Enthusiasm, ep. 38: "The Funnies!"

IT'S a special on-the-road edition of KYE as Helen and I discuss newspaper cartoon strips: which ones we read as children, which ones we avoided and why Helen didn't like Doonesbury. We also examine why our kids have become so obsessed with Peanuts and Calvin & Hobbes
And why that's a cool thing.
We also find time to digress and talk in-depth about the Mr Men series of books.
The outro theme this episode is the Peanuts TV special theme.
I've also thrown in a Doonesbury public service announcement, Mr Butts Goes To Washington, from 1990 for your aural pleasure.

It's 33+ minutes of vehicular hilarity. Download it HERE.

If you want "the funnies" sent to your inbox every day, then head to Go Comics and order as many as you like. It's pretty cool and dirt-cheap.

Meanwhile, below are samples of some of the other strips we talk about in this episode.
