You Say Karate, We Say Carrotty


Some new film about a kid who gets trained in karate by a wise, old teacher is released soon. Apparently, it's called The Karate Kid, and is based on a film of the same name from the 80s...nope, we've never heard of it either!

Haha! Of course we have, which is why we're honouring the original classic this week, with a strip inspired by a scene from that very movie, when Daniel is undergoing his training for his karate tournament.

Of course, The Carrotty Kid itself is an ongoing homage to The Karate Kid, with both Carrotty-san and Master Che-Ri being based upon Daniel-san and Mr. Miyagi themselves.

We'll be joining the ranks of karate fans when the remake is released here in the UK, ready to see if Smith and Chan can match Macchio and Morita. Have any of you Carrot-teers seen the film yet? Did you like it? Let us know!

In the meantime, for those that haven't seen the new flick, here's the trailer to whet your appetites.

And remember: PICK UP THE JACKET!

If only we could all throw fireballs, huh? That'd make life a lot more interesting!

Sadly, we can't, but life is still kept VERY interesting, thanks to the continued adventures of The Carrotty Kid - HOORAY!

As well as a new strip, we've a new character appear this week, Melonhead, the school bully, who'll be returning on and off to make our hero's life hell. Booo, hiss!

And talking of new, there'll be more new comics this week, a couple of new t-shirt designs and possibly some other goodness if I can get my computer to work properly. Stupid thing. Man, I'd LOVE a fireball about now...

Food For Thought

Hey chums!

Thanks to the wonderful response for yesterday's Bananaman-based strip (including lovely comments from Bananaman's co-creator, the very kind Steve Bright!) I thought I'd treat you all to a little bonus Carrotty in preparation for the weekend! HOORAY!

This Strip's Bananas, B-A-N-A-N-A-S

WELCOME to a very special guest-star in today's Carrotty comic - BANANAMAN!

Bananaman - the 'nana-powered superhero - is celebrating his thirtieth birthday this year, having debuted in Nutty comic waaaay back in 1980. Created by brilliant cartoonists Steve Bright and the late (great) John Geering, The Big Blue Blunder quickly found favour with readers, and was granted his very own TV series in 1983, which featured the vocal talents of popular comedy combo, The Goodies.

The entire Bananaman TV series has been re-released in a tasty boxset to celebrate the blue berk's thirtieth, which is a MUST-BUY for fans of classic British cartoons, or fans of silliness in general!

Bananaman still also graces the pages of The Dandy Xtreme comic, where he continues to battle evil and bungle his way through adventures.

So, let's all fill our glasses (with Banana Daiquiris, naturally) and give three cheers to one of Britain's best-loved superheroes! Hip hip, HOORAY! Hip, hip, HOORAY! Hip, hip, HOOOOORAY!

As a wise man once said: 'man who catch fly with chopstick, can accomplish anything'. Let's hope the same wisdom doesn't apply to carrots, or else The Carrotty Kid is in BIG trouble!

Thanks, chums! Until next time!

And don't let those lemons sour your day!
