Storyline

George Geef rushes to the office to inform his fellow employees, "Hey, fellas! I'm a father!". Unfortunately, Geef later learns that, with fatherhood comes responsibility and lots of it. He must discipline his son when he starts fighting with neighboring kids, filling his pipe with bubble water, and pestering him while he tries to read the newspaper. But most difficult of all is getting him to pick up his toys which is no easy task. Written by Matt Yorston <george.y@ns.sympatico.ca>

a cartoon for fathers
8 January 2003 | by awblundellSee all my reviews

Although I am sure kids will enjoy this cartoon, the humour is primarily aimed above their heads. I am sure a lot of fathers will smile wryly while Goofy as Everyman comes to terms with fatherhood. Enjoyable and nicely observed cartoon. Not as immediately funny as some but more subtle than most.
