Wheres Waldo One of Many great Kids books of the 90s Oh, Waldo, how you continue to thwart our valiant search efforts. Despite your obvious penchant for flamboyantly candy cane striped red and white sweater/hat combos and your tendency to take along every possible piece of travel equipment on your obscenely crowded vacations, you still manage to boggle our minds with your mysterious whereabouts. In the original book, Waldo lugs along a walking stick, sleeping bag, mallet, drinking cup, binoculars, kettle, backpack, camera, snorkel, belt, another bag, and a shovel. Clearly, if he's going get lost in a crowd, he's got every imaginable amenity to walk, sleep, pound, drink, see, boil, carry, document photographically, dive, remain in pants, store more items, or dig his way out. That's right, it makes perfect sense. With "Waldo-mania" sweeping the country throughout the 1990s, there seemed to be no one without vested stake or interest in finding this bespectacled excursionist. There was something oddly if inexplicably satisfying about curling up with a big hardcover picture book and focusing on crowded, chaotic scenes until your eyes crossed. It wasn't just Waldo we were after, either; he brought with him a gang of of absurd cronies and/or nemeses. There was Wanda, Waldo's pal. Woof, his faithful canine companion. After that is where things got a bit weird. These were from the 90's: Where's Wally? The Ultimate Fun Book (1990) Where's Wally? The Magnificent Poster Book (1991) Where's Wally? The Dazzling Deep-sea Divers Sticker Book (1994) Where's Wally? The Fabulous Flying Carpets Sticker Book (1994) Where's Wally? In Hollywood (1993) Where's Wally? The Wonder Book (1997) Where's Wally? The Great Picture Hunt (2006) Where's Wally? The Incredible Paper Chase (2009)

Last Peanuts Cartoon - 2000 The last installment of the beloved comic strip Peanuts was drawn by its ailing creator, Charles M. Schulz, on January 3, 2000. Schulz was afflicted with cancer and was no longer well enough to continue drawing Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy and the rest of the gang after nearly 50 years at the helm. Since newspaper cartoon strips are typically drawn well in advance of their publication date, the final Peanuts cartoon appeared in Sunday newspapers on February 13, 2000--the day after Schulz died at age 77. This is part of it.

Dagwood Sandwiches Dagwood sandwiches are enormous creations comprised of numerous leftover meats and vegetables, often with extra slices of bread in the middle. The name originated from the Dagwood Bumstead character in the popular newspaper comic strip Blondie, who frequently snacked on this type of oversized sandwich. The first such sandwich is believed to have appeared in the Blondie comic strip in 1936. A small chain of Dagwood Sandwich shops exists today. One item on the menu is an enormous Dagwood that weighs 1.5 pounds!

National Lampoon 1970 -1998 National Lampoon was an irreverent, ground-breaking American humor magazine. Its success led to a wide range of media productions associated with the magazine's brand name. The magazine ran from 1970 to 1998. It was originally a spinoff of the Harvard Lampoon. The magazine reached its height of popularity and critical acclaim during the 1970s, when it had a far-reaching effect on American humor. It spawned films, radio, live theatre, various kinds of recordings, and print products including books. Many members of the creative staff from the magazine went on to contribute to successful media of all types. During the magazine's most successful years, parody of every kind was a mainstay; surrealist content was also central to its appeal. Almost all the issues included long text pieces, shorter written pieces, a section of actual news items (dubbed "True Facts"), cartoons and comic strips. Most issues also included "Foto Funnies" or fumetti, which often featured nudity. The result was an unusual mix of intelligent, cutting-edge wit, and crass, bawdy frat house jesting. National Lampoon's humor often pushed far beyond the boundaries of what was generally considered appropriate and acceptable. Co-founder Henry Beard described the experience years later: "There was this big door that said, 'Thou shalt not.' We touched it, and it fell off its hinges." The magazine declined during the late 1980s and never recovered. It was kept alive minimally. (In 1992, for instance, only one issue was published.) It ceased publication altogether in 1998.

Mad Cartoonist Don Martin Don Martin was a feature cartoonist for Mad Magazine from 1956 to 1988. Martin's immediately recognizable drawing style (which featured characters with bulbous noses, enormous chins, and hinged feet) was loose, rounded and filled with broad slapstick. His inspirations, plots and themes were often bizarre and bordered on the berserk. In his earliest years with Mad, Martin used a more jagged, scratchy line. His style evolved, settling into its familiar form by 1964. It was typified by a sameness in the appearance of the characters. (A strip's punchline often was emphasized by a character's deadpan take with eyes half open and the mouth absent or in a tight, small circle of steadfast perplexity.) Martin punctuated his work with his own unique onomatopoetic sound effects, such as "BREEDEET BREEDEET" for a croaking frog, "PLORTCH" for a knight being stabbed by a sword, or "FAGROON klubble klubble" for a collapsing building. (Martin's dedication to onomatopoeia was such that he owned a vanity license plate which read "SHTOINK," patterned after the style of his famed sound effects.) Martin left Mad in 1988 after a dispute over royalties from reprints of his older cartoons. He worked for rival magazine Cracked for six years. A typical Don Martin comic strip featured far-fetched humor. One example featured a man who was run over by a steamroller being saved by a concerned passerby who folds the victim into a paper airplane and throws him in the direction of the nearest hospital. Martin died of cancer in 2000 at the age of 68.

Near Air Disaster - 1983 Gimli Glider Incident A mistake in metric measurement nearly caused a catastrophic airplane disaster over Canadian airspace in the summer of 1983. Known to Canadians as "the Gimli Glider," on Saturday, July 23, 1983, Air Canada Flight 143, a Boeing 767-233 jet, ran out of fuel at an altitude of 41,000 feet. It was about halfway through a flight originating in Montreal en route to Edmonton with a stopover in Ottawa. Although both engines conked out due to lack of fuel, the crew was able to glide the aircraft safely to an emergency landing at Gimli Industrial Park Airport, a former Royal Canadian Air Force base in the small community of Gimli, Manitoba. An investigation later found out the airplane had run out of jet fuel because it had wrongly been fueled in litres rather than imperial gallons. Luckily for the 61 passengers onboard, the flight crew was familiar with glider flying techniques and was able to safely land the huge aircraft. With some difficulty, the airplane touched down on a small runway that had recently been converted from an abandoned military airstrip to to a race track. A race event was underway at the time but was stopped in time to allow the aircraft to land. An official investigation later revealed "company failures and a chain of human errors that combined to defeat built-in safeguards."
