Rudie Easter Dragnet Caper Pt1on March 28, 2023 at 12:01 am
This year we’re getting an early start on our Rudie Easter special – Back when I first came up with Rudie, I thought it’d be fun for a cute reindeer to talk like Joe Friday of the Dragnet radio & TV show… (Well at least some of the time she does, when she tosses out a catch phrase or two)… It wasn’t till last year that I got to thinking that maybe I should try a full Dragnet type of script, a Police procedural with clipped, Jack Webb sort of dialog… Can’t say that I was entirely successful, after all it is a humor strip… Originally this story was two pages – two rather crowded pages… Later I relaid it out for three pages, but it was still too crowded… Eventually I expanded the script to four pages while adding a few more panels for the ending scuffle, which seems to work out reasonably well…
Next time, Rudie will delve into the dilemma of, is the Easter Bunny Villainess or Victim? And what about the Mongoose egg?? Things could get rather dicey for the hard boiled reindoe, in the episode we call, “Part 2″…
Whee… We get to ogle that bountiful bit-player Bunny again… But will she be back, or is this the only bit she’s playing in this ominous egg-straviganza?
Rudie as a PI?
Works for me. Maybe not for Jim Rockford, but hey…
You say, Rockford didn’t like Dragnet? I enjoyed both shows… Incidentally for those who may be interested, this episode was filmed in Venice California – the back alley wall of the Ellison apartments is seen in panels 1 & 4, while the other brick building in panels 2 &3 is somewhere in Venice (I don’t recall exactly)…
Who is this amateur gumshoe? This looks like a job for Vikki Marlowe to me. If you want to put a shamus on the case, get a pro! Marlowe wouldn’t be distracted by a random bunny for a second… (more like a couple of hours!)
But Rudie isn’t a Shamus, she’s a duly authorized agent of Santa Claus! That is a thing, isn’t it?
Sure. Why not. (Who’s to say different?)
It’s April Fooz day, so indulge me with a bit of wish fulfillment…

Ah, I can almost hear that whining, bleating voice fading into the distance:
“Witch hunt! Biggest witch hunt in history! I won the election! Biggest win in history! Fake news! Fakest news in history…”
Ah well, one can dream, can’t one?
Two cops caughted Donald Trump,in case he haven’t finishing the election,he was sensed to jjail and wait for court on the date of April 1st,2023 with no absolute reasons for why?
