Krazy Kat Redux

This summer Patrick McDonnell’s comic strip did a take-off on George Herriman’s comic strip, Krazy Kat, for those who might not have gotten the classical allusion.


There are so many of these. I pride myself on recognizing many that may have been relevant to the educated class in my era, but then I realize that I’m clueless to many more allusions that refer to popular performers and other phenomena that have been emerging increasingly in the last few decades. These will be more familiar to those “in the know” in my kids’ and grandkids’ generation, and are truly unknown—more than obscure—to me. Getting’ old.
