Happy Easter 2011!

Hi, everyone,

We wanted to bring about a simple Happy Easter wish; but, looks like Roy Duck has gotten into a little tiff…







We also wanted to share with you this silly video based on a Muley comic strip from the late 80’s. Now, you can watch the video and then enjoy the original comic strip that caused it to happen!

This comic strip has its roots from way back, and the one you see appeared on Rock 103's website back when they were running the "Funny Pages" as part of their content.  This was a webpage dedicated to comics from Memphis cartoonists, most of whom are members of the Mid-South Cartoonists Association.

You'll also notice the name is different than usual in order to appeal to the adult audience.  Bob Thaves of "Frank and Earnest" once replied to an e-mail that, "...although the comics are good, you will have issues getting the syndicates to accept the title."

Just before the "Funny Pages" were removed from the website, we did change the title back to Muley Comix.

Sunny Days...

Well, it isn't owned or copyrighted by us, but Kev has decided to make a comic strip based on Sesame Street for fun.  This one includes Big Bird and Mr. Snuffleupagus.  Hope you find it fun and funny.  Oh, and do you see the little Easter egg? 








In case you didn't get the "Easter egg:"  Big Bird once appeared on Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood, which is the show they are watching on TV.

But, what has us REALLY excited?  Our good friend, Scott Braun, has a new license plate on his truck!  You'll remember him from last year with the "MULEY" license plate that we drew on and sent to him?  Well, this year he celebrates SuperMule! Check it out!

Happy Birthday, Charlie Chaplin! Kev did some paintings!

Here at Muley's Comix and Stories (yes, that little off-shoot of Kevin L. Williams Productions) would love to send out our happy 122nd birthday wish to Charlie Chaplin...not that he'll be able to see this on his computer or anything.

Still, his comedy has always been inspiring to us, and our appreciation for his life's work is as great today as it was when he was still around.

Completely under-rated, never appreciated enough, we could stand a genius like him in today's world!

Thanks for the laughs, Charlie Chaplin.






KEV HITS THE EASEL!

And we don't know why--it didn't do anything to him; but, he did produce his second ever abstract art piece as seen here.  All paintings are 20x16" and acrylic.
Then, folks will remember a piece he painted back in 2009 called "The Woe and Despair of Charlie Brown," (seen at bottom) will now be interested in the companion piece painted 2011 titled "Lucy's 'Crabby is as Crabby Does" painting.

Muley's Sermon - 4/3/2011 - Being Saved

video

It's a big church, so the sound has a lot of reverb (or whatever you call it).  The actual script can be found in the notes of Muley's Facebook page.

When Puppeteers Unite!

At the fan-fabulous convention, MidSouth Con, a few weeks back, there was a 10pm panel discussion about Puppetry in Motion on which the very talented and lovely Mary Robinette Kowal and I had a chance for a little fun.  She brought some beautiful puppets from her own collection, and from our studios came a visit from Muley the Mule and Frankie Steinatra.  Here are some images from that panel discussion.  Oh, and never tell puppeteers they only have an hour for a panel discussion--you need at least TWO hours: one for the puppeteers, and one for the puppets.

Enjoy!

"Muley's Talent-less Revue" Show

So, what exactly is "Muley's Talent-Less Revue" all about?  If you click on the logo, you'll certainly find out--maybe more than you wanted to know!

Stay tuned here to see when we'll be performing the program!

The show features the performers creator Kevin L. Williams along with MAW Productions' Martheus Wade and Janet Wade, and artist extraordinaire DaMarco Randle.

A while back, Muley wanted to create a program to showcase talent from around the world.  Being a 6-year-old with no budget to travel around the world to search for these acts, he had to settle for what he could get!
The acts were found with the help of his best pals, Buford the Dog, Roy Duck and Missy Mule.
  • From the lounges of Transyl-Vegas comes Frankie Steinatra.
  • From the Italian city of Dressing comes the TV Theme Song Singing Opera Singer.
  • From the dark depths of Purgatory comes Death, dealing high spirited humor.
  • From the bogs of Louisiana comes the most fearsome favorite of Holiday Spirits, Santa Fish.
We present to you:
MULEY'S TALENT-LESS REVUE
But, with a show that has Muley and Missy working together on it, let's hope they can keep the show going before they go to battle!
A 20-minute spectacle of humor and song, "Muley's Talent-less Revue" is a family pleaser, adults and kids alike will enjoy seeing, singing along, and dancing with Muley the Mule and Friends!
Stay tuned for information about meeting the cast and characters after each show.  You can learn more at www.muleythemule.com
