Purple Mamba 6…and finally

Previously in The Purple Mamba…

  • Fridges got raided
  • Buns went missing
  • Dulse got drafted in and placed on hold
  • More fridges got raided
  • John out-Bellamied David
  • Santa ate Christmas
  • Professional bun-eaters were left distraught
  • Les Hontas interpreted evidence to identify The Purple Mamba…..
  • Technology Gnomes slaved
  • Pixelating Pixies collaborated

All because of the crime of the century – theft of food from starving civil servants!

So, without further ado, here’s the final edition (Director’s cut) of the aged Purple Mamba cartoon.

Please be warned: Content may not meet today’s exacting PC standards and not all underpants worn are Calvin Klein’s!

Oops – I missed: Part 1 | Parts 2 & 3 | Parts 4 & 5 | I’m just glad it’s all over

If you’ve made it this far, wow and congratulations on your stamina! Thanks for sharing a little stroll down memory lane with me and a couple of old friends – I hope you were able to share a smile with us along the way.

Remembering where this self-indulgence all started last week (or 17 years ago to be more accurate) I’ll finish by wishing a fond farewell to the friends who willingly appeared in these cartoons and who are no longer with us – gone but by no means forgotten!!

Purple Mamba Pt 4 and 5

Previously in The Purple Mamba…..

The dull but deadly, dogged detective Dulse has been called in to follow the trail of the mocking, mad munching monstrosity that is the bun shaped bun burgling bum The Purple Mamba. Though hot on his trail, Dulse was unable to catch the calculating, caped cake crusader before another attack….but he was trying really hard to meet his current key performance indicators!

This week, by the Power of Grayskull, (well actually, it was by the Power of Scotland, Scottish Power being the company who won the latest annual “battle of the energy switch” to supply my household gas and electricity. This is not to be confused with the Flower of Scotland which is a delightful and tuneful song when sung well by patriotic Scots) oh, I digress again!

…the Technology gnomes of the Photoshop room in my computer have successfully negotiated with the pixelating pixies. These are the little folks who live inside my Canon Ixus camera and wind the shutter opening crank, before running the images over to my desktop machine. Between them they have successfully cleaned up some more old copy and conspired to bring you…..

…watch this space for the next “exciting” instalment (I think the three of us are still enjoying this anyway). Until then…

Help! I missed Part 1 | Parts 2 & 3 |

Purple Mamba Pt 2 and 3

Previously in The Purple Mamba a bun-shaped bun burglar had raided the buns from the bun cupboard of the Fun Factory (OK, a local office full of civil servants, but Fun Factory makes it sound so much more exciting)…..

So, the magic gnomes of technology that reside in the Photoshop room inside my desktop machine have slaved for, er, well, minutes actually. It became hours when you take into account the research that had to be done by cruising the internet first. I digress, the magic gnomes have managed to remove the yellowing of age and the deterioration of the print quality (these were done in the olden days after all) and we’re ready to roll with the next instalments – woohoo!!!

There is a small but dedicated following out there (I think) who will remember, nay cherish these images (yes, all three of us), for their ability to transport us through time to a place when we were happy and young(er). Yeah, OK this all feels a little bit self indulgent, but I hope it makes few folks smile anyway.

I give you Purple Mamba (Parts 2 and 3)….
