I’d also like to take a moment to wish Joe Murray a happy birthday. He’s one of the many cartoonists to have captivated my childhood. Even now, at 27, I still wish I was part of Rocko’s world. And who wouldn’t? It’s a world where someone working as a lowly comic shop clerk can afford a house of his own. A world where your crabby neighbors are actually the parents of your favorite animator. A world where your food processor has a mind of it’s own and tries to kill your dog. Well – I guess I could do without that last bit. Still, I can’t help but be jealous of that little wallaby. Hell, I’d be happy just to get a job at a comic shop, regardless of the pay.
Anyway, thanks for all the cartoons, Joe.
