Wow, love seeing the original art in these videos! Or at least, I think those are the originals Mr. Walker is holding in his hands.

I agree Larry. Beetle Bailey was and still is today a must-read when I pick up the comic section of the newspaper.

This would be a good time to say thanks to Mort for the opportunity to meet him and many other great cartoonists in the early 80’s at his former cartoon museum in Port Chester, NY. Thanks, Mort!

These are great, but way too brief. I could hear him explain his comics for hours

I laughed so hard yesteday after I read the “Beetle Bailey” strip. I immediately showed the strip to my dad and he said to me, “Yep, that’s me alright”. :)
