It would appear that everything TB knows about California comes from watching the Beverly Hillbillies. Today’s strip, in fact, literally depicts “swimming pools… movie stars”.
It took a week’s worth of strips for Mega Comics to fire Pete and a single classic “tell don’t show” moment for some Hollywood producers to all but hire him? Ugh. If it takes a week of chicken jokes to get the script finished, let’s all hope legendary script doctor Larry Gelboo is involved.
