Of Dodos and Frogs and Lions...

Whenever The Barker sees a couple of kids sneaking under a loose flap to catch a free peek at the Thimbleton extravaganza, he doesn't rat them out! He sees a couple of future carnies there!

However, when The Barker sees a frog and a dodo bird sneaking into the circus, well...he regrets ever taking those brown tabs back in '69!

This week's regular selection of comic perfection comes from the same comic our buddy Trixy came from, Funny Stuff #45, May 1949! The feature characters are Fenimore the Frog and Dodo, trying their best to weasel out of a paid ticket to the big top! Charming and funny, feel free to print it out and share it with your kids...just don't try to explain that "brown tab" remark!

Back on Monday with an All-New Freak of the Week featuring art by Reller and Leo!

Nothing says trouble like the pairing of the dodo bird and the frog. The pairing is always certain to bring laughs. It's a classic combination that always wins! Laurel and Hardy, Abbot and Costello, funny but not quite on a par with amphibian and extinct flightless bird.
