Family Circus - No 'Cease and Desist' Yet!

Bite me, Billy.

AGAIN.

Since the first and second installments proved to be so popular, I've decided to give it another go.

As I was perusing through the Sunday Funnies as I normally do, it dawned on me that "Family Circus" is one of the absolute worst comic strips of all time.

Why I'm the last to realize this, I have no clue.

Regardless, I decided to take some of the Family Circus cartoons and update them with my brand of humor.

Enjoy.

There.

That's better.

They're not gonna teach you this stuff in the art colleges, kids.

I suppose the next time you'll hear from me, it will be from jail due to Copyright infringement or some shit.

Fuck it. Totally worth it.

Take that, Billy!

Moog out.

Family Circus actually used to be kind of somewhat edgy, as evidenced by the example on this page:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Family_Circus

But Bil Keane totally cashed in on the fact that the fucking stoopider and lamer it was, the more popular it became.

Still he found the Dysfunctional Family Circus entertaining until he heard his readers complain about it. (See the section on FC Parodies.)

Also, Mrs. Family Circus (Thelma)? You know she just aching for it. Totally.

Piggyback pimping is my favorite. Reminds me of my childhood.

You're a sick man. Which is why I've been reading your stuff for years.

I think I like your version better.

I always thought Dolly was kind of a slut.

By FAR my favorite MMofS feature. And I know this is a bunch of hilarious and tasteless nonsense here, but there is a bit of discretion and art in play (I'm serious). Some folks would have taken the restaurant one (where everyone is imagining what they want) and then altered it by having EVERYONE'S new wish changed. But by having only the dad's altered, it somehow makes it way funnier.

Of course, another option would have been to keep the parents the same and have the kids all imagining killing mom and dad . . . but that's too dark even for you.

Love these, yours are always better than his. Thankfully our paper never had Family Circus. We had Wizard of Id, which totally rocked, but no Family Circus, Ziggy or Kathy.

According to Jewels said...

haha I love your take so much more! :) Greatness...as always.

I don't know where that *thing* in your mind flipped to make you like this, but I truly enjoy it.

These are really, really great.

Good stuff! The originals were lame.

VE said...

Totally fucking worth it! I'll send you more of his material to change when you're in jail...

Well played! As a 8 year old child I fucking loved Family Circus- but it was probably just the disney-japanime looking characters. And that probably explains my love for my japanime sex pillow of bambi now too... good god man, you have opened up a can of worms here.

I love Family Circus because they used my name in a cartoon...but the corn cob joke is priceless!

Can't wait to see what you do with one of those with the dotted lines showing where Jeffy wandered on his way home from the crackhouse.
