Bizarro is brought to you today by The Hilarity of Horror.

Can you believe it’s Christmas week again? It’s been about a year since the last one, so yes, I can. But doesn’t it seem that the older you get, the more often Christmas comes around?  I’d like to propose that we change it from once a year to once every 75 years, to coincide with Halley’s Comet. That way plastic nativity scenes on front lawns can benefit from the more realistic “star”.

In the next few days, I’ll have some fun Xmas cartoons in Bizarro and I’m going to post a special edition of this blog tomorrow (or the next day) with a sled full of my favorite Xmas cartoons from years past.

Today’s post is about Santa’s midlife crisis. This one was fun to draw, but a tad tedious, I must say. I was seeing cheetah spots every time I closed my eyes for days.

These other two cartoons are from Friday and Saturday and I haven’t anything clever to say about them.  Let’s move onto the archival cartoon today.

PALEOZARRO: This cartoon from 2007 was wrought from personal experience. I’m one of those people who cannot get a song out of my head, especially annoying ones that I don’t like in the first place. The three Xmas TV specials I commemorate here are chock full of those damned things. Just looking at this drawing again puts those songs in my head and now I’ll be tortured for the next who-knows-how-long. Do you see the sacrifices I make for you, dear reader?

  1. You are so incredible. I look forward every morning to finding the hidden wacky things.
    One question,what is K2?
    Your drawing is terrific,I majored in illustration For my college degree.
    You rock!

  2. WOW! Sunday’s strip is worthy of framing! Kudos, Mr P! btw… there’s probably a photoshop plug-in that will make those spots for you, but to be a true artist, you gotta suffer! Happy Solstice!

  3. We see your sacrifices and appreciate them very much! Thanks for the laughs and Merry Christmas. (Sure came much quicker this year!) ~Pamela

  4. Jaguars would have tied in better with the sports car, but cheetahs are faster. Like the red nose on the lead cat.
    Re: Rapid Christmases-It took me much longer to go from zero to 21 years old then it has taken to go from 21 to 71.

  5. Hot rodders use to refer to heavily customized cars, with no performance enhancements, as “lead sleds”. This Lamborghini-based sleigh with the cheetah drive-train certainly looks like it should be damn quick. But cheetahs are known for fast bursts of speed, not as distance runners. We’ll have to wait and see if they have the endurance of reindeer to cover the entire globe in just 24 hours.

  6. The mid-life crisis Santa is my favorite Bizarro cartoon so far! That’s saying a lot since I really like them all. Your attention to detail is great…Mrs Claus’s expression is priceless.
