I’m running a little late today. I was in the yard, uncovering all the young plants after the Big Freeze failed to materialize. I’m not complaining, mind you. The best cartoon is a marriage of word and picture; I became a better cartoonist when I consciously began to incorporate that simple fact into my own work. Sometimes, however, a good gag doesn’t need anything more than four panels of a guy watching television. A good example would be the TV-centric gags of Doonesbury. I can’t think of another one.
