Rather odd to actually HEAR the characters...

Can Bloom County still be relevant in the 21st century? Kinda screams "1980s" to me.

I vaguely remember the animated Christmas special. If I recall, the voices used then worked quite well.

The Onion's AV Club had a pretty good interview with B. Breathed recently. Should be in the archives.
2001-12-20 08:32:59 PM  
The only thing that might bother some farkers is that Berkeley Breathed has been really involved with PETA.

I remember bloom county. vaguely

Here's the Onion interview.

What kind of voice did Opus have in the Christmas special mentioned in the article?
2001-12-20 08:46:14 PM  
It's "A Wish for Wings that Worked" Very good, and I believe that its available on vhs. Opus, Bill, Santa, Cochroaches and ducks. More of an Outland cartoon than Bloom County. I'm glad I taped it when it was on tv the first time.
2001-12-20 08:46:34 PM  
It was kindof high and feminine. Fit the character fairly well.
2001-12-20 08:50:44 PM  
Oh my god. Opus' voice was done by a guy named Michael Bell. According to IMDb. he's been doing cartoon voices since the 50's, including many cartoons from the 80's that I had nearly forgotten about.

For those with semi fast connections, link to The Men's Kouch Club where they have a few 5-8 meg quicktime clips from the x-mas special, so you can hear his voice.
2001-12-20 09:15:07 PM  
Outland was cool too!
2001-12-20 09:17:26 PM  
Pogo was the best cartoon of all time.
2001-12-20 09:19:18 PM  
(Which means I think Bloom County is great.)

Do cartoons just suck ass now or did I get old? growning up I had Bloom County, Far Side, and Calvin and Hobbes. Today, I can't think of anything. Do cartoons suck ass now?

In my experience, those who address others as "you sheep" are immoral people who think that a willingness to victimise their fellow man makes them possessor of a superior intellect.

How sad for you.

If the military had used this, [image from too old to be available]it would have been over weeks ago, and bin Laden would be dead.

3M TA3 mostly I agree with you, but there are a few out there that are good. Examples being, Non Sequiter by Wiley, Foxtrot, and yes Dilbert.

Oh, and Fetus, I think you need to bring out the fish again, some of these people are getting uppity.

made this on the 5th ofOct for a photoshop contest.

preminition? perhaps
2001-12-20 10:06:01 PM  
Didn't that penguin's ass use to always fall off? Or maybe I'm having some crazy non-existant memory..
2001-12-20 10:09:02 PM  
Fudd I never got into Dilbert, lived the corporate life, can identify with it, but never got into it. Don't know why.

There are some good cartoons that are not mainstream.

I enjoy these. I guess I just don't head for the comic section anymore. {sigh}
2001-12-20 10:17:15 PM  
Bloom County
The Far side
Calvin & Hobbes

No need for the comic section any longer.

Gene Simmons did not have a computer when he was a kid!
2001-12-20 10:30:18 PM  
now a Monkey Island movie is what we need...

or an official Kiss Kasket
The "KISS Kasket" will be available exclusively on the official KISS website and through your local funeral homes.
2001-12-20 10:38:02 PM  
Without a doubt, Bloom County is the finest comic strip to ever grace the pages of any newspaper. All Hail Steve Dallas!

2001-12-20 10:53:39 PM  
I await the return of Deathtounge!
2001-12-20 11:09:19 PM  
I dunno... I love Bloom County. It's one of my favorite strips of all time. I'd probably pay full price to see the movie.

So why am I so afraid they're gonna fark it up Rocky and Bullwinkle style?
2001-12-20 11:15:33 PM  
And speaking of Deathtongue, does anyone remember the floppy record that came with the book?
