No Time Like The…No Time Like The…

Bizarro is brought to you today by A Cure For The Holiday Blues.

Today’s offering is a collaboration with my good buddy, Phil Witte. He’s an exceedingly nice chap and the two of us kicked around the idea of a malfunctioning time machine that keeps putting the operator back a few seconds. It’s an interesting notion, being trapped forever in the same moment with no way to adjust the machine and get out.

This cartoon reminded me of one of my favorite movies of all time, Groundhog Day. I saw this gem of a film when it came out, again a few times over the years and then just a few weeks ago. It still holds up so point your eyes at it soon.

Phil is a good cartoonist in his own right and you can see more of his humor here. And here.

To draw the time machine, I researched the Interwebs and found a site by a guy who had built a (more or less) exact replica of the one from the 1960 film, The Time Machine. I was so enamored with his wacky story and site that I used him and his creation (more or less) as the model for this cartoon. I hope he sees it. You can peruse his unusual story here.

Don’t forget to buy Bizarro crap for holiday gifts. Start here. End here.
