THE CARTOON CRYPT: Porky Pig in Jeepers Creepers (1939)


Another one for my ongoing Vintage Spooky Cartoon list to get you in the mood for Halloween. Unfortunately, the video quality of this one is pretty atrocious.

  1. WEIRD! I just drew a comic yesterday with a character that bears a strong resemblance to that walking ghost-thing in the Cartoon Crypt animation (here: ). The character’s design is pretty simple, so I guess it’s not a SUPER-amazing coincidence or anything, but I do kinda find occurrences like that nifty anyway, heh heh.

    But anyways, since I’m here – long time no talk, Mr. Stwalley! It is extremely likely that you don’t remember me: I e-mailed you a few years ago, asking you to put the “Calgary/Edmonton Maple Ink” forum on the Cartoonist Conspiracy site…and then I kinda disappeared from cartooning for a while, heh heh. I’m back at it now, though, so I figured I might as well get ‘back in touch’ with you because the Minneapolitan cartooning scene is, without a doubt, one of my absolute favourite cartooning scenes on the entire planet. You guys (you, Big Time Attic, Roadkillbill…he’s Minneapolitan, right?) have such a distinct sensibility when it comes to making comics: intelligent, well-written, black & white comics with an appreciation for comic’s history and especially zine culture – and I seriously can’t get enough of it. I’ve been stalking your guys’ work off-and-on for years, heh heh (I was actually highly tempted to ask if I could participate online in that ‘year-long’ comic event you guys did…but then I just got lazy, heh heh). You’re lucky to live in as awesome a comic-making place as Minn-Minn – and I guess Minn-Minn’s lucky to have you too, because as far as I can tell, you (along with BTA), seem to basically be the beating heart powering the whole scene (organizing people, organizing events, etc.). I might be wrong, but that’s what it seems to be like to me, all the way up here in Calgary, heh heh. But yeah, this is definitely too much babbling, so I’ll just end by saying it’s great to see your passion for comics is still as strong as it was all those years ago when I first contacted you. Best of luck with Soapy!

  2. Wow, thanks for all the exceedingly kind words, CogNoman! The brilliant <“>Ken Avidor (Roadkill Bill) is indeed a Minneapolis resident. I do feel extremely fortunate to be part of such an active and vibrant community of cartoonists locally in the Twin Cities. Any activity with the Conspiracy cell in Calgary/Edmonton lately?

    I checked out your current site… your comics are really fun/unique/bizarre… I’ll be including links to some in the next Hey! Kids! Comics! post.

  3. Thank you very much for the kind words, Sir Stwalley. I’m still in the stumbling, bumbling early stages of the comic, so I’m very honoured to say the least –

    I just sent you a PM through the Cartoonist Conspiracy site, but basically, the main comic activity that’s happening in Calgary/Edmonton right now is, like you guys, I imagine, 24 Hour Comic Day, heh heh.
    Both Calgary and Edmonton will each be hosting their own events on the weekend of Oct. 25-26. (We’re hosting them a week after the ‘official’ 24HC weekend because we have a local comic convention happening on the 18th-19th).
    Apart from that, I don’t think there’s too much to pass on right now.

    So yes, thank you very much again, Mr. Stwalley – and GO FROG!
