    And….my original question was nine years ago.

    Spare us. This isn’t the ’90s anymore, and there is no longer any plausible deniability. You have collectively made the choice to cast in your lot with authoritarians and neo-fascists, and have made moral choices that can never be taken back, and never forgiven. The list of horrors both past and ongoing is beyond the purview of this space, but in particular, the 2018 family separations will be a black mark on this country for the rest of its existence, and every one of you who made it possible would, if there were any justice, spend the rest of your lives atoning for the trauma and grief you inflicted on those vulnerable, broken and in some cases destroyed families. That, more than any other single policy or action, was the absolute moral event horizon for those of you who fancy yourselves “conservatives”. There is no coming back from that. There is not, and never will be, any possibility of redemption for so monstrous an act.

    Yeah——I’m bit embarrassed to admit this, but as a kid I religiously collected Sunday comics sections every week from 1993 to about 2004-ish, and I still have buried deep in my “vault” those very 1994 reruns. (I remember being so impatient through most of that year waiting for Watterson to come back from vacation.) And I definitely remember those reruns displayed their original 1989/90 copyright dates because I noticed things like that as a kid. So these pasted-on 1994 copyrights are confusing to me - I don’t know how this kind of thing works, legality-wise.

    I’d say her kooky side was balanced out by the major upheaval she went through when she found out B.D. had almost left her for another woman and kicked him out of the house, learning to be independent and assertive in ways she never had before. There was a lot of growth there.

    It’s actually from around 1990. I don’t know why that 1994 copyright date is there. Watterson spent most of 1994 on sabbatical, and this is the pre-1991 Sunday format.

    Cool, what’s the date on that one?

    This is actually something I find kind of maddening —-it’s hard to really find any concrete information anywhere regarding how involved Schulz actually was with any of the animated films and specials. He’s given a “written by” credit on all of them, but that doesn’t necessarily mean anything. Here’s the thing, though. If he didn’t write them, who did? There simply doesn’t seem to be any information about that. Bill Melendez never seems to have brought up the subject directly, nor Lee Mendelson or Phil Roman. At least not that I know about. I know that as the specials went on, they relied more and more heavily on simply utilizing Schulz’s strips, which gave them an increasingly phoned-in feeling. But there was still plenty of original material mixed in there, and someone had to have written that. For instance, the plots of the four feature films. Who wrote those screenplays? Schulz? Someone else? Who? It’s kind of amazing to me that nobody seems to know.

    Apropos of nothing, I love that three-afropuff design. It’s such a neat little visual.

    I love how the dad is just standing there. Frozen with nonplussedness.

  10. 3 months ago on Outland

    ’94, actually. The strip ended in early 1995.
