It’s missing the endless ‘It’s a Small World’ ride from Disney…
And the Hello Kitty Kitsch Gift Shoppe
She should have set that Far Side cartoon, “You Know, We’re Just Not Reaching That Guy” in the Brimstone Mines;-)
Man I miss ‘The Far Side’ . . greatest comic strip ever.
I’m hoping (though I have no reason to) that Gary Larson comes out with “More from the Far Side” or “The Far Side Revisited” on the 20th anniversary of his retirement:-)
I think he stopped at about the right time. There were just starting to be a few signs that he was starting to repeat himself, and perhaps lose a bit of flair.
It wouldn’t have been great to see a decade of Larson getting steadily more crap and formulaic, and turn into Garfield.
True, but it would be nice to think that in 20 years some new ideas might come to such a prolific mind, and I for one would enjoy tasting the fruits of a brief return to wacky world.
I think the fence should have a view into Heaven instead of Purgatory, for extra meanness.
