A Final Peek at Pelicans!
From 1968, the year Romano Scarpa unleashed his “Pilfering Pelicans” (…under the control of “The Pelican Thief” -- who has still not fully recalled his actual name), we have Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm, rather than Huey, Dewey, and Louie, taking the ride on the cover of THE FLINTSTONES # 48 (October, 1968).
And, four years earlier, we see a more conventional Flintstones-use of a pelican on the cover of THE FLINTSTONES # 21 (September, 1964).
And, as a beaked-bonus, here’s that wonderfully bizarre moment where Homer Simpson tries using a pelican, not unlike his “forefather Fred”, to disastrous results – from the absolutely hilarious SIMPSONS episode “Missionary Impossible” original airdate: February 20, 2000!
Oh, and remember, “Pelican Week” may be over, but our comments section remains open 24/7 for discussions of “The Pelican Thief”!
Be back tomorrow for “Pirates Week”!
