We're back!  It's week two of December and we're plowing right along to Christmas!  Last week, the Snow Miser came by for a visit which led to some hurt feelings from another figure known for his holiday... Cheer of sorts.  So I figured fair is fair and invited this individual down to give his opinion on the state of the holidays.  Grab some eggnog or chilled cider and try to keep cool with this one.  Enjoy...

He's Mr. Green Christmas,
 He's Mr. Sun...
He's Mr. Heat Blister,
He's Mr. Hundred And One...

His friends, few and far between as they may be, call him Heat Miser.  This is largely because everything he touches tends to melt in his clutch.  It can't be easy going through life looking like a giant, angry troll doll, but the Heat Miser, voiced by veteran actor George S. Irving, did it with style!  I think Heat Miser's anger was somewhat justifiable.  Having lived in San Diego my whole life, I've never been able to enjoy the magic of a Winter Wonderland.  Granted, a Christmas beach party is pretty cool too, but it's just not the same!  Take heart Heat Miser.  The CRAZIES appreciate you.

And that's a wrap for this week.  Speaking of wrapping, I need to get my presents taken care of!  We'll be back next time with a few familiar faces who'll be staring down a belly full of trouble!  Until then, take care and please think of those in need this season.  Donate while you can.  Every little bit helps!  Take care and I'll catch y'all later!

Welcome to December CRAZIES!!!  Is it really the end of the year already?  Time just flies by, doesn't it?  Seems the older I get, the more it speeds up.  But hey!  It's Christmas time!  Ain't no room for sad sacks around here!  It's time to bust out the tinsel and holly and bake some cookies!  The Holidays are here and we're celebrating with some old favorites!  So pull an ugly sweater over your head and enjoy...

He's Mr. White Christmas
He's Mr. Snow...
He's Mr. Icicle,
He's Mr. Ten Below... 

Yup folks.  We got the Snow Miser chilling with us this week and let me tell y'all something:  Ain't no business like Snow Business!  The Year Without A Santa Claus has long been a favorite of mine as far as the Rankin/Bass holiday specials go.  It's one of those shows that's so weird its great!  And probably the biggest reason why the show is so memorable is because of the Miser Brothers, Snow Miser and Heat Miser, respectively.  Snow Miser was voiced by comedian Dick Shawn who'll long be remembered best as LSD in the original film version of The Producers.  And much like Mel Brooks' legendary comedy, Shawn steals the show here too!

And this seems like a good place to call it for the week.  After all, the holidays are in full swing here and it's a super busy time for all!  But we'll be back next week with more fun with an old pal from Christmas past, so be sure to come back and give it a look!  In the meantime, take care and be sure to donate to local food, toy and clothing drives this season.  Remember those who are less fortunate and lend a hand!  Until next time, I'll catch y'all later!

Well folks, Turkey Day has come and gone, but an even bigger holiday is quickly approaching: Christmas!  Of course, if you've been to a Macy's or Target recently, you would've known back in August that it was.  Or if you've listened to the radio anytime since Halloween night, you would've been reminded there too!  Not even gonna get into Hallmark's policy of ignoring Halloween and Thanksgiving entirely for an extended Christmas Season!  Well, now it really is on the horizon, but Tom Turkey and Gilbert Gobbler are still celebrating their victory over the Farmer Brats.  Can anything thing bring them down?  Let's find out!  Enjoy...

Leave it to Sammy Swine to be a total buzzkill!  He's right though.  These fine feathered pals may have escaped Thanksgiving, but until New Year's Day passes, neither one is truly in the clear.  Frankly, neither is Sammy Swine.  Ham is a Christmas staple too!  Guess they'll all be looking for that bike pump soon!

And so ends the tale of Tom Turkey's 2018 escape!  Will he be back next year?  Probably.  Y'all seem to really get a kick out of this goofy bird and his antics, so why not bring him back again?  While Tom's taking his break, some holiday-themed art will be making the December rounds, so be sure to come back and check it out!  And since the holidays are upon us again, I will, as I do every year, ask all you wonderful CRAZIES to help those who are less fortunate this season.  Clothes, food and toy drives are likely open by now and even a dollar in the Salvation Army Bucket goes a long way towards helping those in need.  So please give, especially now more than ever the gift of generosity is important.  Anyway, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

Thanksgiving is here my CRAZIES!!!  Tomorrow's the big day!  The turkey!  The sides!  The Mystery Science Theater 3000 Turkey Day Marathon!  Yup, I'm all set and hopefully y'all are too!  Ya know, another big part of Thanksgiving is the Macy's Parade, complete with it's many balloons.  If you've been following along these last two weeks, you'll know that Tom Turkey turned his dear pal, Gilbert Gobbler, into a big turkey balloon in an effort to trick the farmer's family into eating Gilbert instead of him.  Well, the plan worked, but it appears ol' Tom feels guilty over his tactics.  Can he save his pal from an explosive end?  Only one way to find out!  Enjoy...

Talk about getting blown away?!?  Turns out turning Gilbert into a blimp made him the perfect weapon!  And young Billy has learned that overalls were the original parachute pants of fashion.  It's a pity Dorothy isn't heavier than him otherwise they wouldn't be three counties over right now!  The day has been saved thanks to Tom Turkey being an underhanded creep in the first place!

That's all for this week CRAZIES.  Thanksgiving fell a week early again this year folks, but we do have a nice epilogue planned for next time, so be sure to come back and give it a look.  And since the big day is tomorrow, be sure to have a fun, happy and safe day with your friends and family.  And for those braving the Black Friday crowds, be safe and be courteous.  It's easy for tempers to flare under such circumstances, but kindness can be far more effective than fists if given the chance.  Take care y'all and Happy Thanksgiving!

And we are back!  Thanksgiving's a week away and the meal may be in jeopardy!  Tom Turkey pumped his friend Gilbert Gobbler so full of air that he's clearly the fattest turkey on the farm now!  But it would appear Tom may be having some reservations over his methods.  Could it be that he's feeling guilty?  Scroll down to see it all unfold!  Enjoy...

The farmers kids, Billy and Dorothy, are a rather sadistic pair of brats.  From corking up cows to lighting farts, these two have no shame at all!  Poor Gilbert's so buoyant that all he can do is brace himself for the worst.  Good thing his neck, and head, are enveloped by his ballooned body.  That'll delay those delinquents for a moment at least!  But Tom may be having second thoughts!  Could a plan be forming?  Only time will tell!

And that's a wrap for this week.  You'll all be blown away by what happens next, so be sure to come back and check it out!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

Welcome to November my CRAZIES!!!  The time of the turkey is upon us!  Longtime visitors of this site know that I'm a fanatic when it comes to Thanksgiving!  The food, the festivities, the parades...  I love it all!  Of course, no Thanksgiving dinner is complete without a turkey, and that ever so clever Tom Turkey is back and fixin' to find a safe path away from the kitchen once again!  He's 3-0 so far, can he make it an even 4-0?  Let's find out!  Enjoy...

Well, Tom's certainly inflating the odds in his favor!  Some pal he his!  He and Gilbert Gobbler have been friends since they hatched!  But it's survival of the fattest, er, fittest on the farm, and Tom has to keep his edge.  Looks like he's well on his way to another year in the pen!  I should note this art originally appeared on Twitter as part of Animaloonies' TurkeyloonDay.  This art got big laughs from pals and a lot a sympathy from bird lovers.

And that's it for this first week of November!  Things take a dramatic turn next time, so be sure to come back check it out!  Until then, take care and I'll catch y'all later!

HAPPY HALLOWEEN MY CRAZIES!!!  Mike and Mindy decided to "Drop" by and provide a few laughs before the spookiness begins!  Ya know, there's a valuable lesson to be learned here.  Actually, there are two: Never try to scare a kid with an industrial strength magnet and always use a belt with a plastic buckle!  At least Mike wore some seasonally appropriate undies for the occasion!  But hey!  It's Halloween!  I think this occasion calls for something a little more than pratfall cartoon gags.  This calls for some celebrity presence!  So here it is!  Enjoy...

Pennywise the Clown has long struck fear into hearts of millions through the adaptations of Stephen King's IT.  And as iconic as Tim Curry's classic portrayal in the 1990 TV miniseries was,  the Pennywise of 2017's film adaptation was definitely WAY the hell scarier!  Seriously, that movie frightened people so much that the clown industry reported severe drops in party bookings worldwide!  But hey!  This is the CRAZYVERSE, so ANYTHING can be humanized, including Pennywise!  Another Animal Alphabets entry, I figured since the demonic clown lurks in sewers, surely even he has some kind of weakness?  And he does!  Believe me, Sloppy Joe Night and Curry Night scares Pennywise too!  It's times like these that having allergies can actually be a benefit!

And that's a wrap for October folks.  We'll be back next week to kick off November and see how Ol' Tom Turkey fares this year.  And since today is Halloween, a reminder to all to be safe out there and keep an eye on the little ones trick-or-treating.  Make the streets safe for them tonight.  Take care y'all and I'll catch y'all later!
