Family Circus – the Lawsuit Continues

Posted: March 22, 2010 in drawings, wtf

Bite me, Billy.


Since the first installment proved to be so popular, I’ve decided to give it another go.

As I was perusing through the Sunday Funnies as I normally do, it dawned on me that Family Circus is one of the absolute worst comic strips of all time.

Why I’m the last to realize this, I have no fucking clue.

Regardless, I decided to take some of the Family Circus cartoons and update them with my brand of 2010 humor.


(click to enlarge…that’s what she said)





















That’s better.

I suppose the next time you’ll hear from me, it will be from jail due to Copyright infringement or some shit.

Fuck it. Totally worth it.

Take that, Billy!

Moog out.

  1. Maxie says:

    Honestly, the originals disturb me more than yours do. Creepy.

  2. Relax, I saw someone who is already doing this and you may end up in the same jail cell. Company.

  3. Hilarious!! Your take on them was really good.

  4. Mrsblogalot says:

    HAAA! Don't stop and don't worry, we'll all bail you out.

  5. Chelle says:

    Family Psychos. That's what this series should be called.If you say "Family Psychos" with a New Yoik accent, it's virtually indecipherable from saying "Family Circus" with the same accent.Fact.Anyhoo, looks like I will spend another day talking like Horseshack.

  6. LB says:

    You ain't right, Moooog!

  7. Workforced says:

    I think you're onto a winner here! You beat the pants off of the original comic strips. Apologies for getting disconnected from you – I'm following you again. Google has been leaving me with carpet burns on my chin…Don Joe

  8. JenJen says:

    Moog you silly goose! I do like these. You are one funny bastard.SMooch.

  9. Momma Fargo says:

    Disturbing…where your brain goes that is. In the old days, they drilled a tiny little hole in the head to let those bad thoughts escape…was popular about the same time Family Circus first came out and men sported clubs and fig leaves.

  10. Sarah says:

    I think this quote on the DFC Web site really sums up the fuckfest that is The Family Circus:

  11. I am sitting here cracking up. Those were so fab that I twatted them.

  12. These need to be t-shirts.

  13. LiLu says:

    I'm with Maxie. *shudders*Isn't incest fun!

  14. Eva Gallant says:

    seriously warped, but hilariously funny!

  15. Eva Gallant says:

    seriously warped, but hilariously funny!

  16. I think by making your version of the comic somewhat faded, you have avoided any copyright issues.Of course, there is still the penis thing.

  17. When I was little, Family Circus used to be like my favorite cartoon EVAH. But I distinctly remember reading it one day and going, "Wow, this isn't actually all that funny" … and I have remained unimpressed ever since.True story.

  18. Moooooog35 says:

    Maxie: You and me both, woman.You and me both.Wannabe: But mine are funnier, right?RIGHT?!Career: Thank you for helping feed my narcissism!Mrsblogalot: Who says they'll let me post bail?Chelle: OOH! PICK ME!! PICK ME!!LB: News flash.Workforced: Welcome back. About time.Jeez.JenJen: Silly goose? Grandma?Momma: That explains this draft in the back of my skull.Sarah: PERFECT.Lee: YOU DID WHAT?!I think you meant 'tweeted.'I think.I'm disturbed by this image now.Hiphop: Ooooooh. Good idea!Lilu: That's what your dad tells me, anyway.Yeah. I said it.Eva: Story of my life.JD: What penis thing? Did I miss something?Typical.Rita: That was scintillating.Just kidding.

  19. randomblogette says:

    Holy shit balls! That is so disturbing that it is funny. My fave is the last one…

  20. kate says:

    I just realized that you renamed them "The Family Fuckshow"…that makes it all the better.

  21. Dude, that is so freaking hilarious. And I knew where you were going with that last one before I even read the caption.Awesomeness.

  22. Elly Lou says:

    Do you ever wonder why the bottoms of their shoes always look smooth like glass or ice? No? Me either. Awkward…

  23. that last one is as disturbing as it is funny!

  24. Ziva says:

    Wow. Thank God I didn't have to grow up with that comic strip. No wonder you Americans are so weird….Not that I think you're weird, or anything… Ahem.

  25. Travis says:

    It's all fun and games until someone gets a penis in the mouth. Wait. Hell yeah that's fun and games!

  26. Don says:

    Good stuff moooooog. Perhaps you can make one up for when their lawyers come knocking on your door. That will be funny as hell.

  27. colby says:

    I am still hanging my head in shame over my childhood love of this comic. I was clearly a speshul child.

  28. I applauded these and my wife said "What the hell are you clapping for"bravo.

  29. Vodka Logic says:

    Billy is gay!!?? who knew.. that closet is deep and dark

  30. Daffy says:

    If I send you my family photos will you scrapbook them for me? I think you could come up with much better captions than I….

  31. You really want to get sued? Redo Chick Tracts

  32. Yours are waaaaay funnier. I hate that cartoon. Can that dude feel good about himself when he goes home at night?

  33. Nicky says:

    Moooooog…you are one sick puppy. In a good way. BTW, MikeWJ, the dude who wrote those is dead…seriously.

  34. Ahh – so refreshing -stay by the phone,I'm sure Disney will be calling with a job offer any day now.

  35. Moooooog35 says:

    random: shitballs?Hey…it happens.Kate: It's all in the details.Brutalism: I know you are but what am I.Wait. I think I did that wrong.Chris: There was only the one way to go on that last one.That's what she said.Elly: Easier prey?No idea.Meleah: Tell me about it..and I wrote the damn thing.Ziva: Yes..we're weird. Says the woman named 'Ziva.'Travis: Best game ever? Quite possibly.Don: I don't they knock so much as barge in.Colby: Be careful what you say…people will make fun of you.Loser.HAHAHAHA.Cleveland: You should see my encore!No idea.Vodka: Billy can be oh so many things. That's the beauty of cartoons.Daffy: SEND 'EM!Malach: Oh..dude…I'm afraid to Google it.Alexa: You can have them all for five dollars.Five dollars. CASH.MikeWJ: I don't think he'll be heading home anytime soon.Nicky: I knew it! (both things)Sheila: Oooooooh. I wonder what they'll have me do? So. Scared.

  36. Kellie says:

    Ew. Family Circus. Horrible. That last one though is hilarious. Ha!

  37. Kris says:

    I always thought they were a family of dwarves with normal height parents. Wait, is that right? Midgets? NOOO… Little People, then.Either way, I hated them.

  38. Yankee Girl says:

    They are waaaay to cute and family oriented for me. Yours seem better and way more realistic. NO FAMILY loves each other that much!

  39. Joann Mannix says:

    Every time I see this comic, I am utterly astonished that this sort of stupid drivel is in national syndication. Yours is way better. Maybe, give them a call, see if you can fill out an application.

  40. CatLadyLarew says:

    The best thing about being poor is that you don't have any money they can sue you for. I've always hated the Family Circus too…. especially when they go all religious. I much prefer your versions… they're actually funny.

  41. I used to read Family Circus religiously. And yes, I am very embarrassed and bewildered to be admitting this publicly.
