If I could turn back time…

Some comics let their characters age, grow, get old disappear, add new characters as the older characters end their story lines. Some comics keep their characters in a state of suspended animation. Calvin remained six for all 10 years of Calvin and Hobbes. I’ve done a bit of the combination of the two, freezing characters at the age that is most conducive to the story lines that I have created.

Pandas come, and sometimes they go (Yun Zi, who really only appeared as a foil to young Mr. Wu, left for China as part of a story line) but mostly, I’ve left Princess Pinky, Bubba, the Meihems, and Six and Sebben as perennial pre-teens because that’s where my mind finds the most fertile story telling. And of course now there is Bikkie!

But now that the real life Pinky Boo Boo has had a cubby, it is very enticing to imagine that Pinky will now be on the receiving end of everything she has put her mother through. But I’m not ready to give up on Pinky as a small panda princess, intent on world domination. Therefore, I’m working on one of those dream sequence story lines, where for now, Pinky and Pinky Junior will exist only in Pinky’s dreams, at least for now!

So, let’s remember everything we love about Pinky! #Clap Louder!

    oh, Bob T., I believe that our lil’ princess has to continue being Pinky, with her age, her whims, her desires (to dominate the world, to be prezydent, etc…); I can’t imagine her getting old through your ‘toons. What’s more, I don’t want to see her as an adult. Then she would not be Pinky, she would be another character. All ’bout Pinky all da Time 😉

      I agree. Pinky needs to continue being Pinky. She is just going to have a little dream sequence. Then she will be back to being Pinky! Will this dream teach her any lessons? I doubt it!
