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.
