The same story applies to this next picture, and I have to give a big "Thank you" to Dave Wolfe over at "Wolfietoons" for it. He had it on his site, and it's one I don't remember seeing before--either that, or I saw it but decided not to download it at the time. However, since it uses the show, "Gilligan's Island" as it's inspiration, it certainly fits in with my Blogiversary Special theme.
Here we see the Skipper in the process of letting Mary Ann and Ginger know that, even though they're shipwrecked, the Captain of the ship is still in charge in this drawing called, "Ginger's Turn".
Here, Buck Rogers (Gil Gerard) introduces Col. Wilma Deering (Erin Gray) to a quaint old Earth custom. The title, "Finally Buck!", would seem to indicate that she's been hoping for a demonstration for quite some time.
Next up is "Colt And Jodi" from the TV series, "The Fall Guy", starring Lee Majors and Heather Thomas. Lee played a stunt man who also worked as a bounty hunter on the side in order to make some extra money. It looks like Colt is going to have a serious talk with Jody about some of the stunts she's been pulling.
The Endart title, as you can see, refers to her as "Jodi" but all indications are that her name in the show was actually spelled with a "y"--Jody. It's as I've said before--which would you rather have, a good drawing or proper spelling?
"Too Warm For Comfort" is the name of the last illustration, and the title is a play on the name of the TV series it's based on, "Too Close For Comfort". The TV show was a perfect example of what happens when you mess with a show's time slot. The show originally aired on Tuesdays, with shows like "Happy Days" and "Three's Company" acting as it's lead-in. After a few seasons, the show got moved to Thursday and, without the strong shows before it, the ratings plummeted like a penguin attempting to fly.
Ted Knight played Henry Rush, a cartoonist. He and his wife had a lovely home with a downstairs apartment that they rented out. When their tenant died, Henry's daughters (Jackie and Sarah, played by Deborah Van Valkenburgh and Lydia Cornell) pleaded to become the new tenants, and Henry finally agreed.
Naturally, hilarity ensued.
In the last drawing for today, I'm guessing that Jackie and Sarah have violated the lease agreement--and they discover what happens when the landlord is their father!
