As some of you may know... i went to a very small Christian high school... (well, baptist high school, anyway, but i won't go into how that's even remotely different right now)... so... my senior year, i was on the yearbook staff... and one of our duties was to create an occasional newspaper for both the high school, and for younger kids who learned stuff in a building next to ours... a guy named Jason Williamson and myself decided we should put a comic strip in there, and so we created this spoof of the wildly popular veggie tales... keep in mind that this was geared towards little kids... so, it's really not incredibly funny or entertaining...
one note: our editor (aka the yearbook "teacher") had some changes she wanted made... first, we could not have the starfruit call our boy, Snork, "stupid"... reasoning: the little kids might decide that "stupid" would be a good name to call each other... my argument: they're probably already calling each other that, and also, the guy saying it is the BAD GUY!!! who wants to be like the bad guy?? what kind of person is this?! anyway... she won that one, and made us change it short... i thought that was stupid... Snork IS short... but, nothing i could say would allow this woman to understand that...
edit number two: when Snork is crying, i used the sound effect "sob" (if you don't know what this means, look it up)... she insisted that people would think it meant S.O.B. (i.e.: Tom Flammer is an evil...) i countered with the wildly popular "get your mind out of the gutter" (or something to that effect). I vehemently refused to change it, because it was ridiculous, and in the end, i won that round....
Anyway... here now is the very first Fruite Tails... although not originally in color, i had used this to practice coloring on my computer... also, i changed "short" back to the original "stupid" ala George Lucas with the special edition star wars (although, i didn't take this opportunity to make my strip suck)

please enjoy this take on what it might be like if fruit could talk....

Hey Dan - it's Dave. I'm kind of disappointed that I'm not one of your cartoon characters.

Hi Dan.

I couldn't see your cartoon. On my computer the bar on the right blocked it.
