Pearls Before Swine - Now animated!

I'm a big, big fan of Pearls Before Swine, a sardonic comic strip that runs mostly in West Coast papers. I have all of the treasuries, and I sincerely wish that The Providence Journal or some other paper would start running it. That alone would make me subscribe to the paper again. (hint hint... oh never mind, they're not reading this anyway.)

Anyway, Pearls is now online in an animated form, which you can see linked above. I think they've done a smashing job, and I like the little 25 to 50-second cartoons they've made out of some of the more popular strips. They're very easy to digest. I highly recommend that you check some out!

(Note: Yup, this is a pretty short post. To get a little "inside baseball" for a second here, my site for Patch launches on November 1, so I'm pretty busy in the preparation for that. This isn't even including the two days next week that I have to be in New York City. So, until things calm down, you'll probably see a lot more 1) shorter posts and 2) obviously evergreen or time delayed posts that I did well in advance. Hence why you haven't seen any Baggage this week, since I'll probably save it mostly for next week.)


  1. Fantastic. I love the heck out of the comic now. I musts proceeding to the checking out of it.

  2. I love that comic. And Get Fuzzy. Get fuzzy would be a good animated one too.

  3. @ TS - It's really freakin' awesome. You can see it daily pretty easily at this site:

  4. @ Danielle - Get Fuzzy would make for an awesome animated show.

  5. I'm glad it's available online now. I had never heard of it before now, but that was pretty funny. :)

  6. @ Christina - It's awesome! I read every day. The online strips are good too, so I hope they keep up with them.
