Espeakink Spanich en Macy's



M.K. Brown is another fine cartoonist. For awhile we were in touch on line but I lost her email address. Her strip cartoon here, "The Singles Bar" is especially funny.

Back in the 80s M.K. Brown, Matt Groening and I were all in the running to do animation bits for the Tracy Ullman show that was just starting. Guess who didn't get the job?

We ran one of her cartoons in Funnnies: "Let's do the white girl twist." She was nice. I think we met her at that SF Cartoon Museum opening?

I believe the "owner" of the SF Cartoon Museum died recently and there are worries about its future.

Wow! You knew M.K. Brown? She is awesome. I remember seeing her cartoons in National Lampoon, along with many other cartoonist of that day, Bode, Gahan Wilson, etc...

I liked the proto Simpsons on the Tracey Ullman show, but I think your stuff would have been better!

RHSteeleOH said...

Namowal agreed with me in another post and I get to agree with Namowal in this one.

Your stuff would have been better!

Linda said...

I agree with RHSteeleOH on the last post regarding the spacesuit (is it an autoharp?) and I agree with RHSteeleOH again here about your stuff.

Yes, to think: when Pat was pursuing me and invited me from the track back to his place to watch Tracey Ullman, we could have been watching YOUR cartoons!!! I'm sure I would have fallen for him right away; as it was it took a while....

p.s. stray said...

cracking up about the spacesuit.

Namowal said...

In the cartoon, did anyone else notice the incessant "ponk, ponk" tone that used to play in department stores? Brings back memories.

we seem to be floatin in agreeable land.

Thanks for posting this, Sally. I see what you mean about the frustration of seeing it frame by frame. But the voices are great!

Sally said...

Yes the voices are great. The Spanish guy makes me think of Manuel in Fawlty Towers.
