For my sequence narrative I wanted to make a cartoon that resembles some we watched in class. Rather than doing the average political cartoon I decided to do a rip off on the legendary characters Hobbes, Top Cat, and last but not least Scooby Doo. The main reason I created this cartoon was to ridicule the argument Kip made about copyrighting issues regarding the artist of Calvin and Hobbes. As much as I enjoyed the materialistic battle, I couldn't resist from doing a little copyrighting myself. I think that a cartoon does lose its soul when exploited for commercial reasons and I wanted to reflect how much a character can change when taken by another artist or used in other ways then its original form.
