And, what th' heck, Greetings, No Class, too!
If you don't use the word pastiche regularly, Merriam-Webster says it's "a literary, artistic, musical, or architectural work that imitates the style of previous work; also such stylistic imitation."
For example, as an unofficial Baker Street Irregular, I can tell you with some authority that Mr. Devlin O'Neill has written one of the finest imitations of Arthur Conan Doyle ever, and-- I bet my furry tail-- the only Sherlock Holmes spanking story, "The Curious Case of the Woman in the Red Drawers!" You fellow Holmes fans and/or spankophiles will be tremendously titillated by the tale! If you're neither, well, here's an opportunity to expand your horizons.
So here now are the cartoon pastiches I've done over the years. These have been around the InterWeb, but not all gathered together in one convenient, ready-to-click-and-save place.
To start, here is what Max Fleischer and company missed doing in the 30's with Betty Boop!
There's a man in the funny papers you all know... well, at least, MY Generation did! V.T. Hamlin's "Alley Oop!"
Uncle Walt's cartoons had spankin'-- but. well, not in THIS context!
(I may have that one up on this blog already... but since Little Miss Naughty likes it, and apparently lots of others, there it is for completion's sake.)
Naturally, cartoons are different these days... I did this one for the "Southern California Spanked Wives (And Girlfriends) Club" and the source (namely, Seth MacFarlane) proceeded to go wayyyyy beyond my pitiful parody of "Family Guy!"
Back to the funny papers, and the Wolfierization of Mort Walker's family strip "Hi and Lois!"
Oh, yeah, there's another family strip still running, created toward the end of the Flapper Era by Chic Young. I've seen various bare-bottomed and colorized versions of this around the Web-- Hee!! -- but here's the original "Blondie" I did for "Arild's Cartoon Spanking Yahoo Group"--
Naturally, I've done some superheroes, but had no one particular artist in mind at the time. This one might have just a touch of Bruce Timm (if that), who's been doing the DC characters for Warners Animation.
I can now see several flaws in this one I did for SCSWC, but if you can't, I won't point 'em out. HA!!
A cartoonier version; I still like the attitudes!
Again, with a slight influence from Mr. Timm, another SCSWC sketch:
Erica Scott has mentioned the Kids' Comics she read that had spankings; I altered this panel from a "Little Audrey" story to be more appealing:
And I'll stop with that Baker's Dozen!
P.S.-- Aren't you glad the frakin' Christmas commercials that started on Hallo-goldang-ween are OVER?!!
But this week you can get a jump on Ground Hog's Day! Or maybe Valentine's... the WolfieToons Book Sale continues to January 1st! Details, and no spam or pop-ups, not even pop tarts, when you click the blue letters!
