Mallard Fillmore celebrates 15 year anniversary
Bruce Tinsley’s Mallard Fillmore is celebrating 15 years in syndication. To commemorate, King Features is launchng a “political retrospective featuring 15 iconic strips that highlight the political landscape over the years as seen through mallard’s unique perspective.” The feature runs today through June 10.
Making appearances as caricatures in the anniversary series, President Obama congratulates Mallard on celebrating his 15th anniversary, sniping that even though he’s only been featured in the strip for a couple of years, “it seems like longer;” Joe Biden unfortunately can’t tell Mallard what he really thinks of him, “until the President says I’m allowed to talk to the public again;” and to help celebrate the anniversary, Nancy Pelosi invites Mallard to her “posh Congressional office…for a free waterboarding.”
In addition to the anniversary series, a political retrospective featuring some of the iconic moments from Mallard Fillmore over the last 15 years will be available on King Features’ website, http://www.kingfeatures.com/mallardfillmore/ throughout the month of June, highlighting the political landscape over the years as seen through Mallard’s unique perspective.
