The Wizard of Id

You ever read 'The Wizard of Id'? It's a cartoon strip that appears in over 1,000 newspapers around the world (I used to read it when I was but a wee bairn). It started in 1964 but in 1969, Jim Henson of The Muppet Show and Sesame Street fame put together a pilot for a TV version. Now footage has miraculously escaped onto YouTube - you might recognise a few voices. Enjoy! 


Allowable comments

You can leave just about any kind of comment you like. You can argue, suggest I am (or anyone else is) wrong, leaving general messages of love – anything. However, you absolutely can't leave messages that attack other commenters (or me), are simple variations of "your review sucks" or that are misogynistic, racist, homophobic, etc: your comment will either be edited or deleted and you'll be barred from leaving any further comments. We want to keep it civil here.


You can hide a spoiler by putting <spoiler> before it and </spoiler> after it. Hover over a spoiler to reveal it!
