Does Anyone Really Care? Bazooka Joe Comic Ending.

It was just announced that Bazooka Joe comics will no longer be in Bazooka Gum. They said only 7% of kids age 6-12 knew who he was and of the 7% less than half liked the character. Damn!

Well good riddance. I hated those cheesy cartoons. One article said that even when it debuted in the 50's it looked outdated and seemed like it was from the 40's. And please work on the rock hardness of your gum.

And while you're at it, please get rid of this dick:

I think it's their fault I have TMJ disorder!!! Man that gum is hard to chew.

Elsie - word. Once it gets going its fine but its like a rock to start.

Man, I liked Bazooka Joe. It was cooler when it looked old, though. The modern version sucks. I remember getting a cartoon a few years ago that was trying to be all gangsta.

I made a "Bazooka Joe" reference to The Daughter the other day, and she totally had no idea what I was talking about.

I had no idea you could still buy Bazooka Joe bubble gum. I regret the demise of the comic. It may not have been worth reading, but it was still a souvenir proving that you'd chewed through a rock hard piece of gum that made the muscles in your jaw ache.

Dr Zibbs said...

Gb - haha.

Love those comics, Joe/Henry. The basic coloring gets my "modernist" eye.
I had that necklace.
Very bad gum. We would chew big wads of it and have bubble blowing contests, but it tasted like cardboard once it lost it's flavor.

Dr Zibbs said...

Diane haha no you didnt have the necklace.

Mathdude said...

Loved Bazooka Joe, but Herny is/was a dick. Maybe I'm just a cornball at heart. The gum was terrible too.

Dr Zibbs said...

Mathdude -Agreed. Seems like they need to focus on the crappy gum.

Chris said...

That gum was the only gum on the planet worse than the gum that came in baseball card packs. About as pliable as cement.

Dr Zibbs said...

Chris -brown man everyone is mentioning how hard the gum is. Maybe we should do a class action lawsuit.
