Love the dogs. One of the them in the back looks like Astro.

I'm lovin' those dogs there, Jim.

Eric, thanks for noticing. Yes that is a swipe of Astro, when I was trying to draw like John K, Lynne Naylor who were studying Ed Benedict, Mel Crawford and them.
I always was fascinated with stylization but could never quite get it.
Anyway ,as you already know, Astro was the direct father of Scooby-Doo. There is also some Kitty Cornered in that scene where Sylvester and the cats are having a party at Porky's house.

I think the dog-catcher should have been in more cartoons. He's a funny character.

"Go ahead and have fun; see if I care". That was a great bit.

What was it like working on "Big House Blues"?

Sometimes it works to bring a character back - you never know. I feel lucky to be in on that one.
