Goofus and Gallant, Lean-Style
One of my childhood memories was “Highlights for Kids” magazine, that staple of doctors waiting rooms. I was surprised it still exists, in print and (of course) web forms.
One thing I remember was the “Goofus and Gallant” cartoon in each issue. It was pretty heavy-handed in it's approach, drawings that compared what the “bad kid” (Goofus) would do in a scenario versus what the “good kid” (Gallant) would do.
I wondered, the other day, what Goofus and Gallant would be like if they were grown up and managing a factory or some other operation. Click for a larger view.
Maybe we can have a caption contest. What other Goofus and Gallant captions would you suggest for the photos above?
Is anyone here an artist who could draw our own less-copyright-infringy drawings for something we might call “Doofus and Leanie”???
