Catch “Dick Tracy” at Lum and Abner Festival

LumAndAbner2Time for a road trip.  Our very own Mike Curtis will be a special guest at the 38th annual Lum & Abner Festival in Mena, Arkansas June 5th and 6th.  Mike will be joined by “Snuffy Smith” cartoonist John Rose and Lum & Abner cartoonist Donnie Pitchford at the Ouachita Little Theater from 12-2 on Saturday the 6th.

These special guests and others will help perform a new “Lum and Abner” radio script with several famous characters joining the Lum and Abner cast.  It should be a laugh and Mike will be joining the likes of Ned Wever, Matt Crowley and Bing Crosby in voicing our favorite detective.  Also of note, Vitamin Flintheart’s adviser, Coffee (who has shown up in Lum and Abner and Gasoline Alley), will be played by the real life Coffee Jeff Sinsley.  So if your in the area, mark you calendars.

And, if you need to remind yourself about Lum and Abner, let the experts help….

  1. We’re looking forward to meeting Mike Curtis and “Coffee”!

    The times, Central time zone, are a “meet and greet” Saturday at 12:30, and the program starts at 1:00 p.m. It’s at the Ouachita Little Theater. I’ll ask Mike to tell the folks about the crossover strip from last summer in white Dick Tracy met Lum and Abner.

    On Friday, June 5, I’ll be doing a sketching program in Janssen Park as part of the Lum and Abner Festival.

    I hope everyone can attend our Lum and Abner Festival!

    I’d be honored to have you visit my comic strip, “Lum and Abner.”
