Do Redheads Have More Fun?
Talk this week of redheads -- er, orangeheads -- in "Cul de Sac" has got me to thinkin': The funnypages love a good carrottop. (Not to be confused, puhleez, with the Carrot Top.) From strawberry blondes to rooster-red moptops, the comics have been very, very good to the character Clan That Sports the Red and Orange.
What's the reason? "Mom says redheads have fiery, uncompromising temperaments!" Petey exclaims in "Cul de Sac." So is it a cartoon-stereotype personality thing? And Petey's sis says: "Your hair's so orange that it's distracting." So maybe it's a visual thing -- our eyes can't resist such colors in the Sunday comics.
So from Calvin to Hagar, Petey to Little Orphan Annie, Foghorn Leghorn to, well, Red, the Official 'Riffs Question of the Day: Who is your favorite cartoon redhead?
You're invited to share your brightly belocked picks.
