For the 200th Bird Toon of the Day (November 7, 2015), I turned to a comic that is enough of an all-time favorite that it has gone through two repeat runs at GoComics, as well as a bound hardcover three-volume printed collection in 2005 (released in paperback as well seven years later). Of course, I am talking about Calvin and Hobbes, which presented this gem way back on June 18, 1989:
Another favorite strip by an animal lover cartoonist is Patrick O'Donnell's Mutts. On August 28, 2015, I featured the first strip of his (as far as I know, anyway) that featured a budgie. I had to scan my own newspaper clipping because it was so old -- September 10, 1994 -- that it does not appear in the comic's online archives.
Yes, it's more Bizarro. This one, my 100th Bird Toon post (on July 30, 2015) is a play both on one of my favorite Humphrey Bogart movies and on the companion birds I have had almost continuously since I was 12.
