It always interests me to look back and see what all happened "on this date" in history. So today I am only going to comment on a comic strip and a cartoon.
I like anything that makes me laugh or smile, so naturally I like comic strips and cartoons. How many of you have ever read the comic strip "Li'l Abner" by Al Capp? I would take a guess that we all have seen it and gotten a laugh or a smile out of it. You know, I was really surprised to discover that it has been around for a long, long time. It made its debut on this day back in 1934, that was 81 years ago. I would have never guessed that it started that long ago.
How about cartoons? Walt Disney's "Bambi" (an animated feature) premiered in Radio City Music Hall in New York on this day in 1942. Dang, I wasn't born until 1943 so that means that Bambi is older than I am. Double Dang!! How the heck did Bambi keep looking so young and I am looking so old??? Life just isn't fair is it?
Now, you all take time to laugh and have a great day, you hear?
