Cass! Don't just sit there thumbing through your magazine. Your Mom is having a stroke! Call 911!

Since when has Kath been one to make such terrible puns? I don't recall her doing that before...

Careful, Cas! That's an imposter!

I know we make some bad puns at times but those are bordering on being a violation of the Geneva Conventions.

Bill Scott and June Foray were probably those who did the most, to be certain that I would forever be unfit for polite company. I will always be grateful.

Wasn't William Cannon the narrator with the "best" puns?

William Conrad. He did a lot of stuff. He was the original Matt Dillon in the radio version of Gunsmoke, and never got over being dumped when it moved to television.

I think it could have been great.

Conrad got to make a lot of them, yes, since the "tune in next time" almost always had one built in. And, the narrator ended up as the designated stuckee for one really brilliant/horrid pun, which both Rocky and Bullwinkle said they were unwilling or too embarrassed to actually say on the air (it involved a jewel-encrusted toy boat... I later stole this pun and incorporated it into the version of the Adventure computer role-playing game I developed).

Mr. Peabody (voiced by Bill Scott) was accorded the honor of making most of the really soul-searing ones. If I had a dime for every time Sherman winced, I'd have a lot of dimes.

I had the chance to attend a talk by Bill Scott and June Foray, at UCLA, some decades ago, and during the Q&A session I asked Mr. Scott "Who was your punster?". He confessed to having written a lot of them... "We were't trying to write what was funny for kids... we were writing what we thought was funny, period."

Ummm... I see nothing wrong with Katherine's puns... :mrgreen:


BTW, be it ever subtle, Castela DID react, in the second panel... Look at her eye stalks... She looked up from the book.

What a fantastic opportunity to have attended!

I always thought it would be neat to have a red ruby yacht... even a toy version.

Ahhh. The weekend mornings frittered away watching cartoons in the 60's.

Thank you, Omar Kayak.....

Yes, indeed...Saturday morning frittered away in one's pajamas eating cereal and waiting for one's favourite cartoon to come on.

My Saturday morning cartoons were from the 70s, but the feeling is the same. I remember us having to turn on the big, built-into-a-big-wooden-cabinet B&W TV 5 or 10 minutes ahead of the show we would want to watch, in order for it to warm up...

Brain Fart, William Conrad played detective Bill Cannon on the TV show Cannon. I still make that same mistake over and over, since the '80s.

Castela is not looking at Kath with fixed stare and curled lip; nor is she rolling her eye-stalks, reaching for the phone to call for help, or covering her ears. The conclusion I come to is, these sorts of jokes and puns are a common occurrence in the Gilchrist household and Pickle, through constant exposure, has developed a tolerance.
