    Many thanks, Gent.

    Many think that if comedy isn’t new or modern that it is of diminished value. I think that the opposite is closer to the truth. Where have all the great comedians gone: Milton Berle, Jimmy Durante, George Gobel, Bob Hope, Red Skelton, Flip Wilson, Jack Benny, Jerry Lewis, Don Rickles, Jackie Gleason, and so many more? There were never greater comedians than they. The same can be said of the truly great classic cartoonists. Their work can’t and won’t be surpassed, no matter how modern or “new” be those that follow. The Golden Age of Cartooning, the ’30s, ’40s, and ’50s, was just that: golden.

    The above quote is from my interview with GoComics. To read the entire interview, please click the GoComics Blog below and scroll down a bit. And thank you for following Bozo.

    Gent, I’m copying and pasting what wrote to Happy Dog:

    Newspapers are in deep decline, but even if a paper dropped from say 200,000 to 85,000 in it circulation over the past 15 years, that would still be tens of thousands of readers who would be exposed to the strip. Bozo viewers on GoComics are not exposed to the strip unless they go to its page, and the strip is drowned in a sea of 500 comics. Besides, each newspaper would pay a fee to run the strip based on circulation, with about half of that going to the producer of the strip. Comics are the most popular section in a newspaper followed by the sports section. Bozo has already proved it would do well in newspaper syndication, as it once had millions of readers. It could, I believe, again.

    You always leave me speechless, Gent. No one tells it more truthfully or better than you. Thanks a million!

    Ideally, Gent, newspaper syndication would be best, followed by one or more books of strips. My wife has always complained that the Bozo strips in “Whistling Down the Halls” are too small. So several books of a larger size strip would be ideal following newspaper syndication. Newspaper syndication would potentially make the strip known to millions.

    I was hoping that the problem had been fixed, too. The number of strips at three per day, seven days a week should last until late February. If they were run at one a day, like most comics, they would last seven years at six per week. What the future of Bozo after February is I don’t know. GoComics has options,and I have options. In any case, I will do what I can to see that Bozo continues somewhere, somehow. It is a brand new strip to the millions out there.

    And Hank Williams got most of his material for songs from reading comic books. Said so himself.
