The longer I cartoon, the longer it takes me to write holiday gags.
There’s your standard Halloween subjects: jack-o-lanterns, vampires, Frankenstein, and the like, but the low hanging fruit gets picked pretty quickly, and you’re stuck really having to work out more unique jokes.
I remember this one simply arising out of my finding that I didn’t have a single Wolfman cartoon, and working really hard to eschew the obvious gags. I don’t remember why it ended up in the business world, but you have to feel for him.
Poor guy. . .
