I love this page! Many other characters come to mind. I hope you don't mind my sending some along.

Rocky & Bullwinkle, as everyone knows, are also both New Deal-era liberals. They knew Walter Mondle back in Frostbite Falls, MN, and campaigned for him throughout the state during the '72 election. A monogomous same-sex couple for the last 30 years, they live quietly in their home town, and are accepted by the locals for what they are.


Boy, we were easily amused back then, huh? : >

Woody Woodpecker is of course an anti-enviornmentalist conservative. All the tree-huggers get in the way of his pecking.
