GUEST,Songbob Lyr Req: Pogo's Songs (117* d) RE: Lyr Req: Pogo's Songs 27 Dec 11


I have seen recent (last 10 years?) reissues of the strips Kelly did called "Bumbazine and Albert the Alligator," which featured a human among the animals. Bumbazine was a little black boy (this was the 1940s, so we can call him a "pickaninny") who could talk to the animals. He mainly talked to Albert, and Pogo wasn't much in it. Eventually, Ol' Bumbazine left for greener pastures or high school or got drafted, and the animals kept on, with Pogo moving up to be Abbott to Albert's Costello.

It's better that Bumbazine left. He wasn't as believable as the rest of the cast.
