More Cartooning TOS (Guest Star Gallery)

I couldn’t resist doing another batch of these. Funny how the Voila! app makes all the women on the show look even more doll-faced; Stella too! Of course the lighting and common soft focus on TOS added to it! By the way, for those wondering, a reader asked why I made all the characters look like children in my last post. Well, that’s all part of the app algorithm! Also, the original app gives you three versions of the original, and in the last post I cropped them all down to the ones I though looked best – mostly in ‘royal’ mode, whatever that is! For this post, I’m posting all the versions per character, (I love how Khan, looks like a perfect Mort Drucker caricature. You’ll see that not all of them quite work! Sometimes in profile, a nose gets nipped! And with with aliens; Balok’s puppet looks like something out of Salvador Dali! However, since so many of them look pretty cool, (We have some gorgeous Diana Muldaur here in both of her Trek roles) that’s a testament to the beautiful photography of TOS! Enjoy, and hope you’re doing well on these blessed summer days. -Therese <3

The Daily Scrapbook 12/7/12 ‘Star Blecch” – The Original MAD magazine parody.

Here’s today’s flashback:  From the late 70’s, a reprint of the original MAD Magazine Star Trek Parody — Star Bleech.  Funny and brilliant, back when MAD magazine was the go-to for delightfully skewered satire. Excellent art by Mort Drucker, (with a nod to  Don Martin’s everyman) and hilarious writing by Dick DeBartolo,   Enjoy!

My Daily Spock 4/20/12

Here’a a beautiful cariacture of Spock from the Original Star Trek Satire from MAD Magazine.  The artist was the legendary Mort Drucker and written by Dick Bartolo (First published in MAD – Issue #115 Dec. 1967 – by E.C. Publications).  However, this version was colorized in by  artist Kail Tescar (in 2007). Great Job, Kail!

  You can see the entire comic here.  Still pretty darn funny after 46 years!
