Illustration Friday: canned

The soundtrack of my youth began everyday after school. I would get home and watch Gilligan's Island, The Beverly Hillbillies, Bewitched and I Dream of Jeanie.

It was a simple and good life back in the olden days. We only had a black and white TV and the canned laughter always helped me know when something was funny.

That's a great interpretation of the topic. Love the color. I remember watching reruns of those shows after school too. One we watched that you didn't mention was "The Brady Bunch." Great illustration.

Wow, I remember that! Wonderful thought and colors! I remember watching "Dark Shadows" too! Hmmm...I don't think that was funny at the time, but still fun!

Look what you've started, Scott. This must be a reunion/remembrance of the senior crowd. I was also an inveterate bewitched, I Dream of Jeanie, Beverly Hillbillies, Gulligan's Island AND Dark Shadows (although that one would give me nightmares). Great to see your take on this topic.

Dammit! I wish I thought about canned laughter...

I really like the way you expressed the word in the illustration.

Simple and effective :)
The expression "canned laughter" always made me imagine something like this.

Hilarious (and strangely true--the canned laughter part).

Now I'm hearing canned laughter in my head!
Great idea.
