Greyhound Cartoons

Greyhound Cartoons - a few fast funnies with the swift sprinting hounds.

I started drawing Greyhounds when a couple of friends of mine bought an Italian miniature Greyhound. I immediately thought that the Greyhound was a cartoon natural, and so I quickly put pen to paper. There's something about the shape of the Greyhound that just says 'go'.

A common dilemma of pets - ending up with stereotypical names. My family had the same problem when it was naming cats, resulting in the following names being chosen: Jet, Ginger, and Tabbs. I'll leave it to you to guess where the ideas for those names came from. I think that my father's reasoning was what was the point of naming an animal when is never comes when you call it anyway?

I was originally thinking of putting the Greyhounds in the Jaguar in hot pursuit of the rabbits in a bubble car, but I thought it worked far better this way.

I was playing around with a few ideas for rabbits and wanted to do a gag about them hopping. The idea of putting springs on the rabbits feet came to mind, and why should they have all the fun?
