"What's snoo?"

"Dunno. What's snoo with you?"

I tried to learn "Parsnoops," which is a real jawbreaker. I didn't get very far. Ended up with a few soggy fragments in my memory:

Oh, the parsnips were snipping their snappers
While the parsley was parceling the peas....

The turnips were passing the time of the day
In the night of the moon on the porch
.....
That the scallions were screeched in the scorch.

Or something like that.


And Walt Kelly himself booming his way through "Go Go Pogo" which sounds like a gazette/map/atlas resume of placenames.

something-something Wheela-Barrow SOMEPLACE IN MEXICO!
Delaware, Ohio and you don't need the text to go
Wheeling, West Virginia
With everything that's in ya
Down the line you'll see the shine
From Oregon to Carolina

Eeny meeny miny Kokomo go Pogo....gasp.

An update on the Fantagraphics reprint project. They have released
(I think) three of the projected 12 volumes that will include all
the published strips. I have the first two, and they sell in a
boxed set that would be a great present for any Pogophile. The
reproduction is beautiful.

Some of Kelly's best stuff appeared only in book form (e.g., Stepmother
Goose), and in the comic books, but some of these are very hard to get
and expensive.

[ this is in response to a post by Jeff Danziger, back in Oct '07 ]

"There's a star in the wind and the wind winds high...."

I agree. Porky's gentle song is lovely and poignant. Virtually all of Kelly's writings had at least a hint of humor or satire, but not that perfect little poem. It is soft and simple, as fragile as an April wildflower, and there is only wistful longing. I had not realized that it was written for a daughter who had died very young.

God, I miss Walt Kelly.

But now you are three
And near the end

Here's the rest:

This got me to checking some books that I still have from my you, 50 or more years ago.

This is how it was published:

I was stirrin' up a stirrup cup
In a stolen sterling stein
When I chanced upon a ladle
Who was once my Valentine.
(Natural, this was a ladle
I used to spoon with.)
"Oh, whence that wince, my wench?" quoth I.
She blushed and said, "Oh sir...
Old daddy isn't stirrin'
Since my momma's been in stir."

I've been a long time Pogo fan. For my 50th birthday I received a poster of Pogo with "We Have Found The Enemy..." That hangs proudly in our family room. I also have a Pogo mug that I was given by a friend who knows my passion for Pogo. I taught our Ukulele club "Deck Us All With Boston Charlie" this Christmas.

I have seen recent (last 10 years?) reissues of the strips Kelly did called "Bumbazine and Albert the Alligator," which featured a human among the animals. Bumbazine was a little black boy (this was the 1940s, so we can call him a "pickaninny") who could talk to the animals. He mainly talked to Albert, and Pogo wasn't much in it. Eventually, Ol' Bumbazine left for greener pastures or high school or got drafted, and the animals kept on, with Pogo moving up to be Abbott to Albert's Costello.

It's better that Bumbazine left. He wasn't as believable as the rest of the cast.

There was half a third line to 'Mamie', viz:

'Then Mamie grabbed a hammer and a bucketful of...HEY!'

Also Fiercely Fred (NOT Fearless Fred) never extinguished his Ma but he did go on some travels, viz:

Fiercely Fred, the footpad dread
Went to Wainscoting no sooner than said
Went to Wainscoting, PA did he,
All in the height of the Bumble Bee
'Fall with the flight of the slumber tree,'
cried Fred, the dread of the Seminaree.

As a representative of the younger generation, I must pipe up that I love Pogo too! Got the bug (and copies of the books) from my mom, who read them when she was a child -- such skill, and joy and humor!

As for the claims about most of the books being out of print -- there are active efforts afoot to get *all* the strips back in print, and there were reprints as recently as the 90s, from Fantographics. See the Wikipedia entry for details.

If I remember correctly, and contrary to an earlier post, the "Songs of the Pogo" LP came first and the sheet music was an afterthought.

The song book may be found used from time to time on eBay or Amazon, but the recordings are now available on CD, VERY recently released, and available for as little as $10, depending on the retailer.

The songs are quite entertaining and Kelly had a vocal range that extended to a really fine Irish tenor.

I'll have to re-read the book when I visit my parents. Alas! I'll only inherit my father's Pogo collection when my eyes are too teary to read.


There's a nominal number of numbers you know

My noggin is nimble though normally numb

Are you actually Danziger? He who had Pa Tweed and Nick looking for sonny who was lost in the woods, and one said to the other, "Maybe he ain't the only one who's lost." and the other said "Who else is lost?" and the reply was...?

I have never ceased wondering if the Pogo lines turning up in your cartoons (if you're actually you) were plagiarism or homage. (One could wonder the same about us Woodchucks' rendition of "Pride of Petrovar" or "Eileen Orgh," The arrangement being stolen directly from Ian and Sylvia's first album - but we never get called on it because no one else remembers it.)

Walt Kelly had a daughter who died at about 6 months, if I have this right. He wrote this poem for his wife. (I have the original lettering.)

For the Mother of Kathryn Barbara

There's a Star in the wind
and the wind winds high,
Blowing alight
thru fog, thru night.
Thru cold, thru cold
and the bitter alone...
There high in the wind
rides a Star, my own.
And the Star is a Word...
of white, of white...
And the Star in the wind
is a a Word.

Porkypine

I think this is the most beautiful thing Kelly ever wrote, and I find it impossible to get through without tears.

The ways of the morn
Thought to save just a bit
Just a drop in the horn

To sup in the morning
Or late afternoon
Or during the evening
While we're shining the moon

Have you ever cried out
While counting the snow
Or watching the tomtit
Warble hello

Break out the cigars
This life is for squirrels
We're off to the drugstore
To whistle at girls

Oh, Mamie minded Mama till one day in Singapore,
A sailor man from Turkistan came knockin' at the door.


(to continue)

"Oh, whence that wince, fair maid?" he cried.
She blushed and said, "Oh sir. My mama isn't
stirring since my daddy's been in stir."

in stir = in jail
