    Oops! I shoulda put numbers on these. I'm afraid to do it now. Probably
    erase the pics. Well, we can just number them 1-12. OK?

    Very likely you all know most of these. If so, please save a few for
    our other players.

    NUMBER 6: [​IMG] ................................

    DICK TRACY! Right????? :)

    NUMBER 7:[​IMG]................................


    Hi y'all,

    I looked at all of Rock's images (great idea for a game!!!!!). And I just drew a blank. Then I thought of Dick Tracy. LOL And Mr. Dithers -- wasn't he Dagwood Bumstead's boss????? And now I add, "Winnie The Pooh".

    But I'm still drawing a blank on all the other pics! And I used to read the comics/watch cartoons, etc.

    I'm all guessed out for the moment.....................

    Hugs, Diane

    Good work, Kids. You are all great detectives like Dick Tracey, who
    was identified by Diane.

    Very good, GB. I thought Mr. Dithers might be difficult. Blondie
    was not only a comic strip. It was a comic book, a radio program and
    a buncha movies. I used to have a tape of an old radio program from
    Christmas. The program did its version of A Christmas Carol by
    Dickens with Dagwood as Bob Cratchit.

    Barry, I am shocked that you didn't recognize Christopher Robin,
    the son of Pooh's creator A. A. Milne. I read Milne's biography years
    ago. He was a writer for Punch, the English humour magazine. Then
    he wrote plays. And finally became immortal with the Pooh books.
    He also wrote two books of children's poetry. One of which my
    mother frequently read to us kids.

    I read Christopher Robin's book decades later. He was the author's son
    and first heard the stories at bedtime. He said his father really
    wasn't around too much during his childhood. Too busy with his
    career. Christopher Milne had a bookshop in London. He died about 20
    years ago at age 75.

    Number one is The Yellow Kid, generally said to be the first comic
    strip. That was back in the 1890s. Number 3 is Plastic Man. Loved
    his comic book when I was a teen. He could assume any shape.
    He was, however, easily identified by the reader even when
    in the shape of a bowling pin because he was always red with
    a black and yellow belt.

    Number 4 is a modern strip: Calvin and Hobbes which Gordon
    likes, but I find uninteresting. Number 9 is Aquaman, another
    comic book from my teen years. And 10 is the amazing
    inventor Gyro Gearloose from the Donald Duck comics.
    Perhaps the inspiration for the Christopher Lloyd inventor
    in "Back to the Future".

    Great to see you all back again. I hope some of our occasional
    visitors like Patti will revisit us too.

    And I would eat them too. Homemade rolls are good! What do you fill them with?

    Is #6 Darth Vader? The last one is Betty and Veronica from the Archie Comics.

    Hi everybody.......

    Yippee! More images to guess!

    [​IMG].............................. TASMANIAN DEVIL!

    I loved the Looney Toons!!!!!!!!!! :)

    [​IMG].......................................MARVIN THE MARTIAN??

    Oh, BTW, I'll take a couple orders of those spring rolls! PLEASE. :)

    Or we could do a trade -- some homemade pumpkin custard for spring rolls?! :)

    Later, my friends,

    Hi Kids

    Betty and Veronica, Tasmanian Devil and Marvin the Martian are
    all correct. Number 6 is not Darth Vader, but is an associate of his.
    He is Boba Fett, a bounty hunter who appeared in the first two Star
    Wars films.

    My son used to have Star Wars action figures including Boba Fett.

    Number 5 is Hawkman. Was a comic book hero in my teen years.

    Diane, pumpkin pie sounds wonderful. Haven't had any for ages.

    The spring rolls aka egg rolls were filled with finely chopped pork,
    shrimp, napa cabbage, onion, rice noodles, mushrooms, and cilantro,
    with soy sauce, seasoned salt and some corn starch as a binder. All
    wrapped in won ton skin. All I did was sit and peel the won ton wrappers
    apart and pass them to Gordon. The finished rolls are fried in 1 and a half
    or 2 inches of oil. Gordon freezes his and takes one or two out whenever.

    Numbers 3 and 4 above appear in the stories about Donald's Uncle Scrooge
    McDuck. Magica De Spell and the Beagle Boys are villains always after
    Scrooge's wealth.

    Hey Kids

    Here are some caricatures including some by Al Hirschfeld, America's most
    famous caricaturist. In some of his drawing you will find the name of
    his daughter Nina if you search hard enough. (But you'll probably
    have to find a site with bigger pics.)





    Oops! I seem to have two of the same celeb. Well, I almost lost this
    post. Not going to monkey with it any longer.

    # 2 is Elvis

    # 5 The Marx Brothers

    # 6 is Harrison Ford ?

    # 8 is Michael Jackson

    #9 Is this Harrison Ford too?

    # 10 Looks like Julia Roberts or (all the women who have had collagen injections in their lips! They all look alike these days. :)

    Right you are, GB. I guess with Harrison Ford we could say you are
    right, right. I wonder if Harrison is of Norwegian stock too. Might
    be related to the Norwegian Fjords. To pronounce fjord BTW, you
    sorta slide over the "j". Fee-yord. Accent on the 2nd syllable.

    Hi everybody!

    NUMBER 4:

    PAUL NEWMAN?? Maybe?

    I think GB got all her guesses correct!

    I don't know the answers to the other pics....................

    Hugs, Diane

    As Fonzi might say, "Correctamundo". It's Paul Newman. And I think
    Julia Roberts is correct. None of these caricatures I found on the net
    were labeled.

    I think 1. is Barbara Strident. 3. Has to be Laurel and Hardy. It's
    clearly not the Three Stooges. 7. Looks like George Lucas, creator
    of Star Wars.

    Here's one of his drawings with a hidden Nina. Not sure who the
    subject is.

    # 4 also looks like Matthew McConaughey to me. And I think #3 is Laurel and Hardy.
  17. rockgor

    rockgor Well-Known Member

    Hi GB, I don't know who Matthew McConaughey is. In the old days
    actors generally had names that were easy to spell and pronounce.
    The Studios insisted on it. And had a slew of names to hand out to
    new employees.

    Yes, you're right. In my previous post I typed 3 numbers and two of
    them I got wrong. I can't type or proofread worth a hoot anymore.

    As Mikie says: Whine, whine, whine.

    Rock, I'm thinking about movie star names of the past. I remember a few that I thought were kinda strange though.

    Remember Franchot Tone, Ish Kabibble, Humphrey Bogart, Tyrone Power? I used to think these were strange names when I was a kid. And there was a guy who played the piano in a lot of movies but I can't think of his name. Maybe I'll remember later! :) GB

    GB, I read Ish Kabibble's autobiography a few months ago. He was a trumpet
    player in Kay Kyser's band as well as a comic. In films he kept the same name
    by which he was already known. I always thought it was funny that Ruth
    Hussey didn't have to change her name. She was an unknown with some acting
    experience on stage when she went to Hollywood. Now we have actors
    with names like Chloe Sevigny, Shia Labeouf and Billy Crudup.

    I can't think of any piano player except Dooley Wilson. He was in
    Casablanca. I read that he couldn't actually play the piano though.
    It was reported that the piano sold a few years ago for $600,000. Now
    I see it was sold again last year for 3.4 million. Don't know what happened
    to the other piano that actually produced the music.



    Oops! I see we were posting simultaneous as Sade would say. Hope all goes
    well for mom and baby boy. Name selected already?
