Just to be extra-careful, I should probably slap a disclaimer right here in addition to the one on the artwork: I don’t work for Hanna-Barbera or Warner Brothers, they own the Scooby-Doo characters, and I’m just borrowing them for satirical purposes. In other words, neither Hanna-Barbera nor Warner Brothers has anything to do with the commentary here, and the views and opinions expressed by my cartoon do not, as far as I know, represent those of either company.
That being said, if anybody reading this is from Hanna-Barbera or Warner Brothers, and would like to offer me a job on the basis of my ability to draw your characters, please email me here, ’cause I could really use the work right now.
I spent last weekend job-hunting at the Emerald City Comic Con, and developed the idea for this cartoon on the bus ride to Seattle. To begin with, I was thinking about doing something with a pun off “Old Yeller,” but this got me thinking about other dogs from popular culture. I remembered how there was a series of Scooby-Doo cartoons where the Mysteries, Inc. gang were always running into various D-list or dead celebrities, especially the Harlem Globe Trotters, so I thought it would be funny if they met the President and helped him solve some mystery in a similar manner.
I don’t normally point this out, but since I’ve hinted above at the desperate state of my bank account, now might be a good time for me beg visitors to this site for donations. There’s always been a link near the top of the page for this, but you could also do it by clicking here. Thank you in advance to anybody who does!
