 Okay, the Family Circus one was genius.

Just out of curiosity, were you aware that there was a series of films based on Blondie and a radio program, and that both ran from the late '30's until 1950?

Actually, the backstory of Blondie sounds like a premise for a movie:  for the first few years of the strip, Blondie was a single flapper girl.  Then, in 1933, she married Dagwood, who came from a wealthy family that disinherited him for marrying Blondie.  Comedy or dramatic gold there.

You dont have to wory to much about a calvin and hobbs movie- its creator (waterson) hates the thought of marketing and lisensing in hollywood. Read the book Searching for Calvin and hobbs to find out  more.

I agree with this list though I would add the lockhorns and beetle bailey as well.

LOL, thanks for an early morning laugh.  I'd kind of like to see that Bloom County picture.

I'll watch anything with Anne Hathaway. I think a Hagar film would be awesome. Not the one above though ;) By the way. Am I the only one thats getting sick of hearing about Betty f'ing White?

These were pretty funny.  Yeah they did do black and white Blondie movies.  They were actually pretty funny.  I think you probably actually could make a "Blondie" movie that could translate in today's society.  I don't think they should... I just think they could.

This reminds me of an SNL skit where they had real life comic strip characters in the past five years.  Andy Sanberg played Cathy WAY to well.  The skit wasn't that funny, but certain parts like Sanberg's were.  I also seem to remember two of the women playing Peppermint Patty and Marcy.  Now that I'm thinking about it, the premise of the skit was the comic strip characters worried about losing their jobs because of the decline in readers.

 Love the Hanso qoute on Andy Capp. Nice touch.

Yeah Rheul I'd watch literally anything with Anne Hathaway. I would watch a movie of her watching paint dry.  Hell I sat through GET SMART.  ( I had hopes for that movie )

PS I noticed Tara Perry got a credit in the Broom Hilda picture. So that is just double the eye candy!!!

Please don't make a Lockhorns film!

Weak, with most of your loglines having nothing to do with the comics themes.  B.C. in the modern corporate world?  Seriously?  Personally I think Haggar the Horrible would be a great idea
