I think I have read every cartoon least three times over the years, mostly at the Bach in the summer holidays

RIP. I read one Footrot Flats volume after another in a continuous stream growing up.

RIP to Murray Ball. What am amazing cartoonist he was. Like many here I think I have read every Footrot Flats Cartoon ever made and the movie was excellent too. 


We have lost quite a few amazing people in the past couple of years.

RIP, I loved reading your cartoons as a kid, he was truly one of a kind. Sad to know there won't be anymore dog.

I was sad too when Horse died some years ago - apparently he was a real cat, a bit of a mongrel, and the cartoon version very closely followed the real cat's exploits. Art imitating Life


RIP Murray, and Horse.

My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government

I am still gutted about this a couple of weeks on. That picture of the dog looking at the star in the sky with a sad face, painted on the side of the Water Reserve in 3 kings, really hits me when I see it.




Having grown up on a farm and having read so many of the comics till the pages were brittle it seems like saying good-bye to a well known friend.
