ADVERTISE AT BOING BOING!
A botched bank robbery. From a men's adventure magazine. (Via X-Ray Delta One)
Isn’t it technically “Men in Cartoon Character Masks Gone Bad”? The gentleman on the ground in the lower left appears to have lost his Porky Pig mask. Winnie the Pooh on there hood there too…
You had to go and ruin it.
The title refers to the police officers, silly.
If anyone survives the shoot-out, the subsequent police line-up should be worth seeing. (“Number five, change masks with number three. Yes, you, Daffy.”).
Oh, sure. Pin it on the BLACK duck.
hmh… all from the Disney pantheon except for Popeye. next bank robbery, try Warner Bros. (and no, that wasn’t “Porky”; think three little pigs)
…no, that wasn’t “Porky”; think three little pigs
I only see two officers in that picture.
And Practical Pig.
When was this? ’64? (If only I wasn’t car-blind.) Hm. Disney licensed the Pooh characters in ’61, but didn’t make the first one of their crappy animated movies from them until ’66. It’s kind of borderline, but the mask looks more like the book version than like Disney the Pooh.
Wow, those police officers are being amazingly effective.
Well now I want to read the story!
oh no dolan
A six-way split of the take? Not worth it.
How do you think the fighting started?
I saw this movie. There’s a guy in a clown mask who set it up that way on purpose.
Does he have a fake limp?
Now you’ve got me thinking how fun it would be to see a Batman/Usual Suspects mashup.
Here’s the cinematic equivalent.
Early concept art for Point Break?
Scrooge McDuck is the brains of the outfit
He usually sticks to white collar crime. This really seems more like the Beagle Boys’ M.O.
Two words: The Donald
What a great piece of art. I’m not sure I want to read the story, or if that’d just ruin it for me. Anybody know which magazine it’s from? And when?
