the artists speak!
a gallery of
comic strips and
puppets in the UK
had Paws, Whoopee! had Claws. Paws
was a dog,
whilst Claws was a cat. He was always on the scrounge
for food to fill his ever-rumbling tum, much like
Whoopee! before him, or Ginger from Ginger's Tum
Whizzer & Chips.
Claws shared the same artist as Paws and was conceived
to a similar set of rules: Namely, he would interact
human folk around him, but although they were speaking
to each other there would always appear to be
between them. They were in fact speaking "at"
in wholly different tongues...
