What Ever Happened to the Creator of Calvin and Hobbes?
Swift Nick Nevison and His Remarkable Dash to Secure an Alibi
In this video:
For 15 years, Gary Larson took millions of readers over to the “Far Side.” Using anamorphic animals, chubby teenagers, universal emotions, a simple drawing style and a really bizarre, morbid sense of humor, The Far Side became one of the most successful – and praised – comic strips of all time.

This is too weird. I didn't even look at your comment until after I looked up Calvin and Hobbes. And I didn't look that up until I'd already watched this video. I then noticed that both videos were published on June 9th! I then returned to this video and noticed this comment pointing to the video on Calvin and Hobbes!
I can't remember when, how or why I discovered The Far Side, but I remember in year 9 (late 80's) a mate and I use to meet each morning in the at the school library before class and grab the paper. We'd each have a guess at what page the funnies were on, read The Far Side, then do the daily quiz. We did this every day for 3 years.
It just resonated with both of us. We couldn't figure out why others didn't find it funny.
I think my favourite might be ' "And so," the interviews asked, "do you ever have trouble coming up with ideas?' Well, sometimes," the cartoonist replied. '
If people out there haven't read 'The Prehistory of The Far Side,' please do. It gives a great insight, background and magnificent anecdotes on The Far Side.
For me, the only other comic to come close to The Far Side was 'Non Sequitur' by Wiley.
Such great memories. Thank you Mr. Larson.
One of my favorites was the "Buck & Cut": a guy is coming out of a barbershop - angry with his bad haircut - but the barbers cut hair while the customers ride on those motorized bucking horses. Loved the irreverence.
Larson has had a chance to re-charge his batteries. He should come back - for the sake of his fans who miss The Far Side and had to go into therapy when it ended. (Same goes for the Calvin and Hobbes guy.) He doesn't have to do a daily strip. Just put together a book or two of new stuff. His audience is still there, waiting.
What's the difference between a rock guitarist and a jazz guitarist?
The rock guitarist plays four chords for thousands of people, while the jazz guitarist plays thousands of chords for four people.
Thank goodness he doesn't need to do it for money.
My favorite Far Side was his play on surfers looking for the perfect wave. It showed a happy chimp swinging on a vine through the forest with the caption: He had seen Mozambique. Now most of Tanzania was behind him. Of this, there was no doubt, Chippy had caught the perfect vine.
Gary's cartoons were so funny. I guess his sense of humor was kind of ground-breaking (like Monty Python) which is perhaps why some people thought it was weird or offensive. Then again maybe they were just up-tight dickheads.
Or the one where the two bears are sitting in an old abandoned car in the woods, and one says to the other: "Think about it, Murray. . . if we could get this baby runnin', we could run over hikers, pick up females, chase down mule deer. . . man, we'd be the grizzlies from hell."
Or - The three lab-coated, bespectacled scientists standing in front of their dilapidated rocket, with a large picture of how the rocket SHOULD look hanging on a wall behind them, and one of them is saying: "It's time we face reality, my friends. . . we're not exactly rocket scientists."
I don't think "octopi" is correct. (It's not a Latin 2nd declension noun). Anglicized "octopuses" is much better I think. Because no-one really pronounce it really as "octopodes" what would be its plural where it comes from, that is from a latinized ancient Greek word.
If you ask me, it's no accident that scientists and academics love The Far Side. His quirky sense of humor appeals to intelligence and the open mind. I would bet just about anything that the people who complained about his strip were the kind of narrow-minded ninnies who are offended by ANYthing unconventional because they simply don't have enough functioning neurons to rustle up a sense of humor.
OK have to give one of my favourites, something most with a dog has probably done at one time. Man putting a milk bone on the dog's nose saying wait, wait, wait, and the dog thinking "that's it I'm going to kill him"
In keeping with Larson's sardonic world view, I found this video to be the epitome of stereotype for British stiffness. The Far Side was - to me - and to my brother, to whom I always sent Far Side b-day cards, the funniest, most warped, incisive humor ever. Never did I or we, find them in the least disturbing. So much for the thought that Snowflakes are anything new since 2016. But then, as a resident of the Seattle area, I can attest that it started here early on.
There was a Far Side cartoon with a child with an enormous head and an apple on it and a man ready to shoot it off with a caption like William Tells dilemma. The Douwn syndrome readers complained and Larson's reply was "Bet Charles Schultz never got these kind of letters."
Mr. Larson lived a few blocks away from me. Another neighbor discovered this while walking his kid to the school. There were drawing cells sitting in the top of the trashcan. The neighbor went through them and grabbed a couple and put them in a stroller. This went on for sometime, the neighbor looking forward to going through Mr. Larson‘s trash on Monday mornings. One day sitting pristinely on the top of the garbage was a signed cell of a man going through his neighbors trash. It was a perfect likeness, stroller and all. Mr Larson stood in the front window watching it all unfold and grinning with delight. It made me love his comics all the more.
When I was a kid back in the 1960's, I so wanted to live with the Addams Family, they seemed so normal to me, so it is no wonder that my taste in comics is The Far Side, Ballard Street and Non Sequiter.
My favorite Far Side was a man was getting attacked by a werewolf. The caption read “In his final moments, [the man] remembers where he seen the ugly tie [on the werewolf] before.” And it is revealed that the ugly tie owner was the gun store salesman who sold the man the “100% pure silver” bullets.
So when I was 15, I was with some friends and we took one of my friend's father's car for a joy ride.
It ended up on its roof.
After things had calmed down, my parents bought me this card.
He was definitely abducted by aliens and forced to stop the comics, some say that the anal probe is still inside him monitoring his insults of aliens. Some say the anal probe can turn into an ice cream truck.
When I peruse through the Sunday comics, I might read one or two out of them all, because they almost all suck- in a stupid kind of way. The cemetery of cartoon mediocrity, as Larson put it. He actually made me snort.. Isn't that why you read a comic?
He published a book of cartoons he "could never publish." My fave in that book was an Easter cartoon, depicting Jesus pouring Himself a cup of coffee, with a a thick, wavy stream of strong coffee splashing into the cup. A coffin with the lid slid off sat behind Him, in the background. Jesus is saying, "Dang! I feel like I've been for three days!"
FAKings casting: Lecciones para convertir a una muñeca de cristal en una maquina del sexo.
Vemos entrar a Angelina por la puerta y al verla tan frágil y tierna, algo nos hace pensar que lo mejor sera no aprovecharse mucho de esta chica e incluso abortar la situación. Mas adelante, y a medida que avanza la entrevista, nos damos cuenta que Angelina sabe a lo que viene y viene a lo que viene.
Casa, comida y sexo. Katy, la “Aquarius” de los sin papeles en Madrid.
Calurosa mañana de finales de Mayo, David y Luciano se plantean la posibilidad de cazar a una chica con la escusa de que Luciano es un chico argentino recién llegado a España , sin papeles, sin casa, sin dinero para comer y que la única solución rápida que tiene es participar en un casting porno por el que le pagaran . Pero necesita una chica que grabe con él y llevarla a los estudios de FAKings donde también le pagaran 200€ por hacer un casting porno. Hasta aquí, nada que no hayamos hecho antes y, aunque costandonos, no nos haya salido mal. Pero este caso es diferente, peculiar, ya que Katy empatiza con la situación de Luciano y le invita a su casa a pasar unos días mientras encuentra "algo".
Abortamos la idea de ir al estudio y ofrecemos a Luciano esconder unas cámaras en su mochila para grabar lo que pueda suceder en la habitación de Katy . La solidaridad de Katy no conoce fronteras y al poco de llegar a su casa los dos ya se están dando el primer lote. Se nota que esta chica estaba loca por pillar una buena polla , o que sabe alimentar muy bien a los necesitados ;)
