How many of you out there are old enough to recall The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers? They were (and still are): Freewheelin' Frank, Phineas, and Fat Freddy.

Here's an oldie but goodie from 1970. I remembered this from one of their "underground" comic books, but before I could go rummaging through closets to find it, I saw that someone had already posted the entire page - isn't the Internet wonderful? As a bonus, there's also the "Fat Freddy's Cat" strip at the bottom.


Signor V.




"For me, there's only my wife..."

"Sure I cook with wine - sometimes I even add it to the food!"

"When life itself seems lunatic, who knows where madness lies?"

"It was a grass harp... And we listened."

"Do any human beings ever realize life while they live it? Every, every minute?"

"No. Saints and poets, maybe... they do some."

I guess I'm too young (whistle) to know about that strip, but I'm glad that with my declining eyesight I was still able to actually read it wink



I studied Italian for 2 semesters. Not once was a "C" pronounced as a "G", and never was a trailing "I" ignored! And I'm from Jersey! tongue lol

Actually, it was a West Coast thing, but the comic books were available nationwide, originally in "head shops" and places like that. They were part of the whole "underground comics" scene: Zap, Mr. Natural, Wonder Wart Hog, and stuff like that. Started in the 1960's and some of it is still around today today. Much of dealt with drugs, sex and violence (sometimes all in the same comic book!), and some of it was very political, as well. A lot of the old comics are considered counter-culture classics and are still being reprinted today, along with new offerings.

I guess the best way of describing the Freak Brothers would be to say they were like a cross between Cheech & Chong and The Three Stooges (sorta). My kinda guys.
