This is one of my favorite cartoons! I actually bought the toy years ago and had Billy West sign it. He's the greatest!

Check out my upcoming cartoon book Cereal Killers!

That's just about one of the funniest characters to ever come out of R&S.

Ah, the Good Ole Daze of Held Cels & Overlay/Underlays.. I remember it well! Though we always hadda add a l'il Cel Level hierarchy key, too..

But what's with the old-school "rounded" TV Cutoff Field Guide, tho.. I've never understood why you guys used that old stuff.. Was that just a SpĆ¼mco "nostalgia" quirk, or what?

Were there drugs involved in creating Mr Yak?

Jim Smith said...

Beer was involved in the creation of the Yak - both this one and the 5 - toed, speckled burrowing yak in Untamed World.

"Vincent Waller was the voice of Mr. Yak."

...somehow, that makes perfect sense.
