Doodling at School in the 80's




Crazy Comix

If you went to elementary school in the 80's, you most likely had this set. 
All the cool kids had them or you could buy them from them for $.50.
I remember scrounging up 2 quarters, so I could buy these.
We would get in trouble for doing them during class.
I so just dated myself!

I have been looking for these forever for my kids to mess around with.  My set was trashed. Last year, I finally found them here Crazy Cartoons. I noticed there is a cleaned up family picture, where I think, used to be a lady in a bikini with big breasts.

From a comment listed on that page, it's now an app Crazy Comix App.

There are 8 steps, and each step is numbered:

First, you select your hair or hat.

Cartooning

You trace it on your blank page.
If you can't see it you can trace it on the window or a light box.


Second, you select the face shape.

Third, you select the ears

 Fourth, you select the eyes.




Fifth, you select the nose.

Sixth, you select facial hair, if desired.

Seventh, you select the mouth.

And Eighth, you select the body.

And your cartoon character is complete.


The possibilities are endless.

This is great for a rainy day activity, road trip, or I used them as an art class fast finisher.

Have fun and I hope this brings you back to the 80's, it did me.
