The daily cartoons so far.

I've been posting daily animations for my friends on Facebook, and they've really been enjoying it. One of them suggested that I should post them in blog form as well. His thought was that it would make me rich (thanks for thinking of me, Jon, but I'm pretty sure that isn't going to work) but my motivation is much more altruistic. Cartoons are the best thing in the whole entire world, and should be shared with everyone, not just the lucky few who happen to know me.

Here are the first couple weeks of the daily cartoons, in reverse chronological order. I will try to embed them when I can, and will provide links when I can't.

March 29: Quasi at the Quackadero Sally Cruikshank.

March 28: Interplanet Janet, Schoolhouse Rock

March 27: Piotr Kamler, Couer de Secours 1973

March 26: Time for Timer. Hankerin' for a hunk of cheese and stuff. Three PSAs.

(What the Hell is Time for Timer anyway? A singing, dancing, lump of fat with arms and legs? Please say it's something else.)
