Dialogue Bubbles Have Feelings Too

In this episode of Gralen & Jeddy, Jeddy’s dialogue bubble wants some “alone time”, so he devises a plan to act all droopy so Jeddy won’t use him to talk.  Yes, apparently cartoon dialogue bubbles can exist without the presence of the ones who use them for speech.  Let’s just hope they don’t all revolt.

I don’t know where Jeddy was that he didn’t need his dialogue bubble.  You would think he would want his bubble around most of the time in case he needed to say something.  I suppose, maybe he was in the bathroom, or he went to visit a monastery.

Note:  Yes, I am going to write the words under the panels, as there are many, and as was my usual style back then, I packed a lot of them into small spaces.  Maybe I needed bigger dialogue bubbles.  …Or maybe I just should have learned to write smaller.

Another note:  Never mind the ghost image of Gralen in the first panel that I didn’t erase enough.  He jumped his cue, I guess.


If I were a rich dinosaur(or dog)

I have nothing against rich people.  Heck, sometimes I wish I was one of them.  I don’t besmirch any rich person.  Most rich people got that way by having an idea or dream, putting some hard work and/or savvy into  it, and taking some initiative to see that idea/dream through.  

Yes, some people got rich simply by being the heirs to their family’s hard work and initiative, so what?!  I say “Good for them” just as I do when someone hits it big on the lottery.  We all have different lots in life.  That’s… life.

Now, rich, snooty dogs are another story!  Who likes a Cardigan wearing, pipe-smoking, uppity dog who takes a leak on someone’s car and makes the car’s owner clean it off, as in the first cartoon?  

But come to think of it, there must be a whole lot of dogs feeling pretty high and mighty nowadays, what with having their owners follow behind them scooping up their “business”.  I guess this cartoon was a little ahead of its time.


The second cartoon deals with another puzzling aspect of this Gralen & Jeddy Comic Strip – and that is the number of talking dinosaurs seeming to roam around the world.  You would think that Gralen would be an anomaly, but apparently he has a number of relatives still roaming the planet, as evidenced by his rich cousin from Texas showing up at his door, unannounced.  I guess he wasn’t rich enough to own a cell phone.  Or else it, like everything else he had, was just too big to fit in his car.
