What Ever Happened to the Creator of Calvin and Hobbes?

Swift Nick Nevison and His Remarkable Dash to Secure an Alibi

In this video:

For 15 years, Gary Larson took millions of readers over to the “Far Side.” Using anamorphic animals, chubby teenagers, universal emotions, a simple drawing style and a really bizarre, morbid sense of humor, The Far Side became one of the most successful – and praised – comic strips of all time.

Speaking of comic strip creators that very suddenly disappeared from the spot light, What Ever Happened to the Creator of Calvin and Hobbes: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZwMn9VMOBmQ

Psychiatrist sitting, taking notes while a weird-looking patient lying on a recliner is speaking (mouth open). Caption: "Just plain nuts"

There are two types of people. Those who get the Far Side, and those who don’t (!) find it funny.

Gary Larson was my childhood, and Garfield. The not so flattering side of life…
but with a peppering of sentient cows that were shockingly smarter than some people….

Loved this video! Just reading everyone's favorites here in the comments makes me want to go dig out my old Far Side books ♡

The one that sticks out to me is where a dog is luring the cat into a clothes dryer with signs advertising "cat fud."
To this day, my family still refers to cat food as "fud."

One of my personal favourites was one with a bunch of cows driving through fields filled with people, yelling "Yakkity yak yak! Yakkity yak yak!"

And of course there is the infamous 'Cow Tools' that confused everyone. I was only 14 when The Far Side ended, but I still love it. Gary has recently launched a new website with daily 'reprints'!

My two favorites were the car mirror "Objects in mirror are closer than they appear" and there's an eyeball filling the entire mirror!

And the one where a little boy is chasing a little girl with a snake and the caption read something like, "And the poor reptile was scarred for life."

The people who were offended by The Far Side must have gone to the Midvale School for the Gifted.

This video seems subtly sped up. Why is every video like this now? It makes the rhythm of the speaker weird.

I have two favourites. In one, you see what appears to be a bunch of rubber chickens laying all over a vast front lawn in front of a mansion. The gate archway reads, "Boneless Chicken Ranch." My absolute favourite says quite a lot about anthropomorphism and culture. Two dairy cow women, in flowery moomoos, bespectacled with hornrimmed glasses, sit in padded chairs in a cosy room, one reading a paper. The phone between them rings, and one says to the other, "There that thing goes again, and here we sit without opposable thumbs!"

Updated for 2019.
Gary Larson is breathing life back into the Far Side! There is an official Far Side website launched in conjunction with his publisher. While he doesn’t plan on writing full time its speculated that he might do a few new panels a year.

Hi Simon, I enjoyed the video, but at 0.12 did you mean to say "anthropomorphic" rather than "anamorphic"? Cheers man!
