Jolly Old Bigfoot

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on December 14th, 2006

Several Cryptomundo readers emailed us about a Bigfoot cartoon this morning. Even earlier than that was an email from the cartoon artist himself, letting us know of the cartoon.

Here is the email that we received from cartoon artist Doug Savage:

Hi! I love Cryptomundo! Thanks for maintaining such a fantastic resource for us cryptozoology enthusiasts. I thought you might get a kick out of my cartoon today: enjoy!

And here is the cartoon.

Jolly Old Bigfoot Doug Savage Chickens

Here’s some background on Doug from his website, Savage Chickens: Cartoons on Sticky Notes by Doug Savage.

When I was a kid, I drew cartoons all the time. I drew cows and alligators and pigs and superheroes. I drew a platypus named Ed. I drew a dead dog named Dead Dog Bob. I drew everything I saw and everything I wanted to see.

Many years passed. By a strange series of coincidences, I found myself working in an office. The more I used a keyboard, the worse my penmanship became. The constant hum of computers made my brain twitch. That’s when I stopped drawing cartoons.

Then the chickens came.

Like some sort of haunting supernatural force, the chickens bubbled up from the ol’ subconscious mind. In a trance-like state, I drew them on office whiteboards. I drew them in notebooks. I drew them on anything that sat still long enough. People started asking, "Who’s drawing those damn chicken cartoons everywhere?

The chickens were unstoppable. To retain my sanity, all I could do was grab a stack of sticky notes, and release the Savage Chickens.

Savage Chickens has been nominated for Best Comic Strip at the 2006 Weblog Awards. You can vote for Savage Chickens once every day until December 15! 

I guess radio host Rob McConnell doesn’t believe in Santa Claus either now…

    And the chicken is holding the actual stick carried in the film.

  3. Craig Woolheater responds:


    That is obviously a pointing stick, not a digging stick. 🙂

  4. One Eyed Cat responds:

    I think we’ve needed something funny for a while now.

    This chicken has more culture, IMHO, because at least his stick is real… 😉

  7. sadisticgreen responds:

    I have news that will astound all viewers of these cartoon. I have discovered, through new evidence brought to light, that the “chicken” depicted in the cartoon is in fact………..HUMAN!

    However you’ll have to wait for my Movie to SEE the evidence!!

    Merry Chrimbo Y’all!!!

    Does Santa visit young Bfs? I hope so. Maybe he brings them little digging sticks?!?! Happy Holidays

  9. alanborky responds:

    Craig says the stick’s obviously a pointing stick, not a digging one, but hasn’t Craig in fact proved himself wrong in this assumption by using the stick precisely to get a dig in?

  10. DWA responds:

    See, this mixing of the sas and the paranormal just unsettles my stomach.

    If we’d just stop doing it, maybe we’d all get what we want for Christmas. But noooooo. Homo sapiens, thy hallmark is suffering.
