More Rejected Cartoon Characters

Every cartoonist wants to hit it big with that unique (and highly marketable) character that resonates with John Q. Public. Well, I’ve been sending my ideas to Mr. Public and the syndicates for years and so far *sigh* no Burger King cups for yours truly.

Here are the latest casualities, both summarily rejected by everyone I sent them to. In order to even get them published here on A News Café I had to get up really early in the morning and post them before Doni or Kelly had their morning frappé (or coffee, either).


Now, I really don’t know what it takes…I mean, both of these characters are cuddly and endearing. Certainly they would tickle both young and old. What’s with these “syndicates”?

Maybe if both Mortimer and Blinky developed a penchant for lasagna… hey, that’s it! Excuse me, I have some re-writing to do!
