The best Farside cartoons

At Science Daily: the 30 best Farside cartoons of all time.

Although they picked some good ones, I guess, I think they missed all the ones that stuck in my memory. Here’s my personal favorite, which it turns out was pretty easy to find by googling Farside wolves bobby.

And remember this one?

I don’t know, it seems to me that “thirty best” would be more like “thirty best for biologists” and “thirty best for wordplay” and so on.

Still, click through and check out the so-called thirty best. Do you have any particular favorites they picked (or failed to pick?)

Update: Okay, from the comments, it’s clear that Midvale School for the Gifted is memorable. I don’t happen to remember it, but it did indeed pop up instantly on a google search.

Here it is for anyone else who isn’t familiar with it:

I wonder if I have any Farside collections sitting in my library? If so, I need to get them out and enjoy them. If not, I should pick up at least one. No matter what other cartoons I might have never seen or fogotten, though, the wolf one is probably always going to be my personal favorite!

    They didn’t include Midvale School for the Gifted! I didn’t think you were allowed to leave that one out of a list like this.

    Yes, Midvale School for the Gifted is my personal favorite, and it definitely belongs on any top-30 list!
