Cartoon Saturday


It's Halloween ... bwa, ha, HAAAAAAAA!!! And now for some really scary stuff ...

From the Department of I Couldn't Make This Stuff Up comes this report from (where else?) Salem, Massachussetts: Witch Wins Protective Order Against Warlock in Salem Court; in the wake of a "debate" in which the target became the media rather than the issues, GOP presidential candidates are clamoring for new rules to govern future "debates;" in Pennsylvania, a robbery victim survived being tased and shoved onto the electrified third rail of a train track by his assailants; 22 refugees died in the Aegean Sea when two boats sank during an attempt to flee from the Middle East to Greece; and the Chinese government reacted furiously when an American naval vessel conducted a "freedom of navigation" sortie past one of the artificial islands the Chinese are constructing to reinforce their claim to large areas of the South China Sea.

Yes,  Dear Readers, today is Halloween, and we wrap up three-week Halloween cartoon blowout with a selection of cartoons featuring everyone's favorite self-made man*, Frankenstein!

The question that sometimes arises ...


The movie doesn't always tell the whole story ...


Bodybuilding ... for real, as my granddaughter Leya would say ...


I don't think there's a block for that on the driver's license application ...


The Bride of Frankenstein ... after six months ...


Who needs a selfie stick? ...


Tattoo removal made easy? ...


Frankenstein's favorite game ...


The unknown sequel: "Mother of Frankenstein" ...


Everyone worries about their diet nowadays ...


It looks as if it's going to be a beautiful day for trick-or-treating here in NoVa, with no rain and temperatures this evening in the low 50's. Later this morning, we'll be cheering on our granddaughter Leya as she takes part in a rock-climbing competition, and later we'll enjoy a big pot of Agnes's wonderful creamy goulash before greeting all the ghosts and goblins in search of their Halloween swag.

Don't forget to turn your clocks back an hour when you go to bed, as Daylight Savings Time ends at 2:00 AM on Sunday morning**. You know you've been looking forward to that extra hour of sleep.

Have a good day, and if you're driving, watch out for the trick-or-treaters. See you back here tomorrow for Poetry Sunday. More thoughts then.

Good job with old Frankie! We finally have some clearing today after all the rains for the kids to be out tonight.

Great toons. They were all very punny.

You gotta love Arizona and Daylight Saving (not "Savings") Time. We're the exception to the rule (as are Hawaii and some of our territories), and there's an *exception* to our exception!
