Rocket Frog is old news, meet Rocket Armadillo

I’m not 100% convinced this is really an armadillo, but what the heck, I’ll accept it.

Seeing these two bags of Let’s Potato Chips on Dads was the highlight of the episode for me.

Quilts and Armadillos: Quilt Art by Nancy Simpson

What do quilts and armadillos have in common? Her particular life circumstances led Nancy Simpson to love quilts and armadillos. The artist is from a long lineage of accomplished women who practiced the needle arts of tailoring, lace-making, embroidery and quilting. Nancy has studied extensively the traditional techniques of piecing and quilting but brings new unique designs to her work. Most of these quilted wall-hangings were made using a solar-powered sewing computer. Wall-hangings serve many purposes in a room: warmth, color, acoustic properties of deadening sound, and the comfort that comes from the softness of fabric. The Oakland Museum of California has, since 2000, one of Nancy’s quilts in its permanent collection stored under controlled conditions.

Originally from Austin, Texas, Nancy was there in the 1960’s when popular cartoonist Jim Franklin made armadillo antics common in local publications. Nancy’s collection started as one tiny carved piece of wood sent to her by a friend from Brazil. After that friends, who had seen an armadillo in her house, brought from their travels in Central and South America, the tiny figurines, usually made from local resources, whether dried squash, sea shells, crochet, or carved gemstones. The biggest contributor to the collection has been her husband Keith Rutledge who is a sixth generation Texan.

Treasure of the Ten Avatars cover by Don Rosa (1997).

Great Indiana Jones-style yarn loaded with some great Hindu mythology. Shame it’s never been reprinted in English, as this issue’s pretty hard to come by these days.

Technically, it’s the Indiana Jones yarns that are Scrooge McDuck-style.
