Boise Ed: There’s nothing EWW or CIDU about this; it just seems like one that everyone in our little community should see, especially the last panel.

    I have to admit, I was tempted to post this really, really small…

    @ Bill (1) - The resolution you used is perfect. As usual, the Wordpress template causes longer comics to get chopped off on mobile devices. The effect here is that I can see only seven of the eight “talking heads”, and can bask in the glory of “taking comics seriously”, without having to deal with the threat of “nursing homes”. ;-)

    Kilby, I found a width that works perfectly on virtually all computer screens, but there’s nothing I can do about phones.

    I think the fact that the panels *could* have been copied but weren’t is delightful.

    There was also a “Peanuts” episode where the kids complained about comics becoming all text.

    Weren’t they? And wasn’t that the joke?

    The only difference I can see is Hobbes mouth is open in panel 4.

    Examine each drawing carefully, especially Hobbes. You will see minor variations in the stripes and the jagged fur on the front along with other differences. Each panel is individually drawn, although the possibility of tracing exists of course.

    @ fleabane (10) - All four panels are completely different. This came up in the sleepy “Garfield” thread. I went and superimposed both strips, which showed minor, but definite differences in all of the repective panels.

    P.S. @ Brian (11) - From the differences in the head positions shown by the superimposed animated GIF, I don’t think Watterson even used the same pencil sketch for inking the four panels, I think he drew them all from scratch.

    This reminds me: I have future pet peeve. There had better be wifi at the nursing home, because I am not giving up CIDU until Bill does.

    Thanks for the analysis Kilby. Doesn’t surprise me. Watterson was pretty dedicated to his craft.

    Looking at the .GIF again, I just noticed that the number of stripes on Hobbes’s arm alternates between 7 and 8.

    @Keera (#14)

    The good news: yes, there will be wifi at your nursing home.

    The bad news: as you use more data, the speed gets gradually slower, and slower, … and slower, …… and slower ……… and slower, …………… until …

    Does anyone else miss the day when Doonesbury was mostly talking heads, but little things would happen, like bread would move around in the toaster? I used to love that, even before I could understand the actual strip.

    Kilby - I often am missing the right side of the strips on my laptop. But then again it is Win XP and I was told when I complained to Comics Kingdom about how hard it is it negotiate their comments - it is no longer supported. (Yeah, I know it’s old, but that did not explain whey they also said my desktop Win 7 is also no longer supported by anyone.)
