You Say Karate, We Say Carrotty



HIIIIIIIYA!

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!

- Fanton.
