Hambo Blog Hop

Welcome to "Name That Toon!" sponsored by Hambo Stamps! Today Hambo friends and the Bacon Bits Design Team are bringing you a dozen fun creations that depict comic strips! It might be our favorite, or just one that was fun to design. If you arrived here from  Jan http://www.jans-gonestampin.blogspot.com/ you are in the right place! If not, you might want to start back at the beginning at the Hambo blog to make sure you are eligible for the hopper prize.
 A prize will be awarded to one participant whose comic strip-themed creation tickles the Bacon Bits’ fancy.  Another prize will be awarded randomly to a hopper who comments on all of the blogs along the way. The winners will be announced on the Hambo blog, Talk to the Ham, on Wednesday, January 23, as well as at the Hambo Hoedown challenge blog.  the deadline for prize entry comments is Sunday, 20th january at 5 PM CST. Don't miss it!

My creation is of course Dick Tracy, the hard hitting, fast shooting police detective created by Chester Gould, the strip made its debut on Oct 4th 1931 in the Detroit Mirror, Gould wrote and drew the strip until 1977. n 1990 Warren Beatty directed and starred as Dick Tracy in the film along with Al Pacino, Dustin Hoffman and Madonna. As soon as I saw the challenge was "Name That Toon" my mind immediately linked Dick Tracy to the SPY digi image by Hambo Stamps which can be purchased here along with some great sentiments.

Now hop on over to  Kecia http://stampingdeets.blogspot.com/ for another great Comic Strip that will tickle your fancy!
