The day that Mr. Hooper died.

This was a rather disturbing episode.

For as much as I hated that episode, it might as well have been like this.

Oh my gosh, this is a BANNER week for Toon Club. I have not laughed this hard in sooo long. The drama of the situation, the hilarity of the guy pulling down the blinds... And just look at Vinnie Hooper with his unassuming, welcoming smile.

Mr. Hooper was a great guy, but you cannot badmouth PBS and expect to get away with it.

Thanks for tha laughs, bud.

That's so upsetting. I'm at a loss for words on this one. It's so sad that he's back behind the counter waving happily. Beautifully drawn... horribly sad and disturbing. So a combined scored of HOORAY!

Maybe I missed this episode, or the one I saw was a government cover-up. Hilarious Bryan-- disquieting, but a great laugh. I don't know how you consistantly do it. Great work as usual.

I love how he looks just like the photo, same smile and everything. It's like this is how he always is. The photo should of had his hand waving... just a thought. My favorite is the guy pulling down the blinds and turning the open sign around. Having a graphic artist executing a brilliant concept equals genius.

Don't say "EXECUTE!"

Sure glad I scrapped my idea of doing a mr. hooper drawing already. This is great...and sad. Maybe the old man had it coming and that friendly smile was all a just a muse.

Wow, guys... This is tragic. I had to look it up on Wikipedia because I was only 1 when this happened apparently. *sniffle* "Because... Just because."
