Yaaaay for Foxtrot making it so high on the list. My favorite currently running strip (even though it's just Sundays).


Also, I am glad Peanuts is on here, and not number 1.

I had no idea there was a Dilbert cartoon,I just added it to my Netflix Q.

You're in for a treat. The Dilbert cartoon was largely ignored because it came out in '99, around the same time we were being deluged with adult animation.

Also the opening credits were awesome.

I can't wait.  It should be here by Friday.

And just then, in a surprise upset, Peanuts took all three top spots.

BTW, the last Peanuts comic shown in the entry is my all time favourite.

While I think it's too bad that it runs only on Sundays now (primarily because my paper doesn't get it, and partly because that means too little Foxtrot on a weekly basis), I do applaud Amend for continuing to deliver how he does. And for also still staying nice and culturally relevant:

I thought they were still on Netflix Instant...

I agree, the voice cast for that is really good. Overall, it's a very good show that should have lasted a lot longer.

I really wanted to see Amend at last year's New York Comic Con, but turns out he wasn't there the one day I was.  :'(

 #2 The Far Side
      
400 Points, 20 Lists, #1 Cjones, ColeStratton, George Harrison, Mrs. Dick Courier

The Far Side is a popular single-panel comic created by Gary Larson and syndicated by Universal Press Syndicate, which ran from January 1, 1980, to January 1, 1995. Its surrealistic humor is often based on uncomfortable social situations, improbable events, an anthropomorphic view of the world, logical fallacies, impending bizarre disasters, or the search for meaning in life. Larson's frequent use of animals and nature in the comic is popularly attributed to his background in biology. Reruns are still printed in many newspapers.

Most The Far Side cartoons are a single rectangular panel, occasionally split into small sections of four, six, or eight for the purposes of a storyline. A caption or dialogue usually appears under the panel as typed text, although word-balloons are sometimes used for conversations. Sunday comics were double-sized, done in watercolor or colored pencils, with captions handwritten in Larson's own cursive.

Most of Larson's comics relied on some combination of a visual and verbal gag, rather than just one or the other. Some recurring themes in the comic include people being stranded on desert islands, aliens, heaven, hell and the life of cavemen. Many cartoons focused on animals, especially cows, bears, dogs, flies and ducks. Notably, virtually all human characters portrayed in the comic were overweight or obese, and usually wearing glasses.

Animated Adaptation:   
No… wait.. yes?  Really?
Unfortunately, video has been removed by user.  But it exists.  Seriously, can someone find this, because when I learned this existed a few months ago, I was shocked!


Trivia:      
Larson is a jazz guitarist. In exchange for guitar lessons from Herb Ellis, he provided the cover illustration for the album Doggin' Around (Concord, 1988) by Ellis and bassist Red Mitchell.

Mallard Fillmore would've work. That strip is such a scary failure that it never ceases to weird me out by its continued, forced existence.

I don't think I've ever heard of that one.
