Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Cartoons & Movies

[Rooting through that box from the liquor store where I toss my writings and doodles, I found a bunch of cartoon sketches from 30 years ago.]

Yet another on the Harold and cats series, this one shows Harrold’s bedroom complete with desk, lamp, Chicago Cubs pennant, skull and cross bones sign that says “Harold’s Room Keep Out” and, above all this a shelf. On the shelf are a baseball and bat and a large glass jar labeled “Cat”. The cat inside can barely be seen. The caption says Harold’s mother finally gave in and let him keep the pathetic little thing he’d found by the side of the road. (i.e., a dead cat)

Cats As Seeds Cartoon

[Rooting through that box from the liquor store where I toss my writings and doodles, I found a bunch of cartoon sketches from 30 years ago.]

Now I’m up to four of these Harold and cats cartoons resurrected from the liquor store burial vault. This one depicts tombstones lined up in a field beneath a happy sun. The tombstones have names of various cats (Kitty, Thomasina, Tiger, etc). One row of tombstones is marked “Catatoes” and the other “Catalopes”. Parked of to the side is a Caterpillar farm tractor. The caption reads Harold took his weird research to the agricultural Midwest, planting the seeds in neat rows.

Cats As Curb Feelers Cartoon

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Cartoons & Movies
[Rooting through that box from the liquor store where I toss my writings and doodles, I found a bunch of cartoon sketches from 30 years ago.]Here’s a third from the Harold and cats cartoon series. This one shows Harold presenting another big idea. With the help of a slide projector, he shoes how cats can be used as curb feelers to protect cars from concrete curbs. (We see a car, a curb and a cat.)  The captions says Harold stood by patiently as auto industry leaders considered his innovative presentation on improvements to curb feelers.

This one describes experiments conducted by a guy named Harold. The caption says “After 97 trials, Harold proved that cats don’t ALWAYS land on their feet.” Harold’s white board presentation depicts a 14-story building with Harold on top and the point of impact below. Plus, for good measure, a close up of cat’s feet.

[Rooting through that box from the liquor store where I toss my writings and doodles, I found a bunch of cartoon sketches from 30 years ago.]

This one shows a song lyrics writer at his typewriter. He’s talking to himself, saying “Let’s see…There’s no business like the TOE business…NAW! There’s no business like the SNOW business…NAW! Hmm… How about there’s no business like the ROWBOAT business…NAW! Let’s try There’s no business like a GROWING business. NAW! There no business IN the snow business… No. Damn! That’s no good.”  The note at the bottom then attribute this cartoon to a series called Great Moments in ______?________ Business, Part Five. The blank is left unfilled because this idiot can’t find the word.
