Treasures from the Disney Vault on TCM

On July 2nd, TCM is presenting their 3rd instalment of Treasures from the Disney Vault hosted by Leonard Maltin. Other than the animated cartoons, but I do not think I have seen any of the movies they are presenting, so I look forward to another great night of popcorn and movies.

Sunday Funnies with Fitzpatrick The Mac Rat #1

While cleaning out my office today I found a couple of photocopied cartoons I had on my office wall at work for a few years. The cartoons were of Fitzpatrick the Mac Rat, which was a cartoon rat and this human friend that appeared on the insanely-great.com web site. Fitzpatrick loved to poke fun at Microsoft back in the 90's when Apple was not the powerhouse that it is today. In fact, at the time these came out, I used to hear from people on a regular basis that I should give up my Macintosh because the company was going out of business any day! As a Mac evangelist, I used to love to put up any Apple related propaganda I could, to help the cause.
I went looking for Fitzpatrick the Mac Rat on the internet this afternoon and could find nothing, so I thought I would share these on my blog. Sadly, I can't find the original computer files of these cartoons, only these photocopied ones I had on my walls which I have scanned and turned back into computer files once again. As a kid I loved the Sunday Funnies in the local newspapers, so I thought it would be fun to share one of these each Sunday for the next couple of weeks. Enjoy!
