#383 – george jetson toothbrush

Hope you had a wonderful weekend! It reached supreme hotness levels in Portland, so I went swimming a few times with friends and my little dog, for whom the experience was totally new. Hopefully it’ll cool down here soon, ’cause nobody in this town has a cooling device. Buncha rubes!

    Thus, all of Ning’s secrets are revealed.

  2. JFish says:

    Hanna wins best face award.

  3. Sean says:

    “Little pinball!” Eve’s mom FTW!

  4. Mayday says:

    Sorry mom, the Mytubes were clogged.

  5. Danyell says:

    Hanna loves tangerines SO MUCH.

  6. Fish says:

    I would've loved to keep my toothbrush if it had George Jetson on it!!

  7. lil says:

    love how eve's not loving the "home is…" speeches, though i really like marigold's. hanna's tearful love of tangerines and bright love of fire are great too.

  8. Andrew says:

    Hanna has worse manners than Genghis Khan. Jesus, Hanna.

    Burning that toothbrush is probably not only wise but also advisable. HOW long has Miss Ning kept it for?

    • Nat says:

      I’d assume as many years it was ago that Eve was old enough to love the Jetson’s enough to want the toothbrush.

  9. SevernFelix says:

    Eve in a tie and Hanna burning things.

    The cuteness ends not at all.

  10. Brooke says:

    I love how Hanna equates taking something out to the trash to setting it on fire.

  11. Gin says:

    No Hanna don't smoke it!

  12. StJason says:

    The funny… err… sadly predictable thing? I have this same conversion with my mother almost every time I go visit. “Mom… I’m 35… I’m not moving back in with my parents…”

  14. meezy says:

    Eve should wear a tie more often :]

  15. George says:

    We of Portland are not rubes! I have several box fans, madam, and I am not afraid to use them!

  16. KimmQuinn says:

    I LOVE THIS COMIC!!!!!!!!!!!!!!11111one

  17. MerchManDan says:

    Hanna truly frightens me sometimes.

  18. hal stern says:

    eve in panel six is basically me during this exchange:
    mom: i bought you some new shoes
    me: they’re size 7
    mom: you’re a size 7
    me: when i was 11 years old
    mom: you never like anything i buy you
    is mrs. ning channeling jewish guilt???

  19. asdasdasd says:

    Is that a young, hirsute Dr. Katz in panel 3?

  20. AlmostLiterally says:

    Am I the only one who thought this was a little heartbreaking, just a tiny bit?

  21. KimmQuinn says:

    Also what I want to know is why that toothbrush went up in flames like it was soaked in gasoline!

  22. grist says:

    What is in those tangerines? O.o

  23. Lola says:

    Anything involving Mama Ning always makes me a little sad. It's like me and my mom, she's genuinely so nice, and means well but you can't agree on everything

  24. jane says:

    I wonder if they planned the whole thing to “enlighten” Eve?

  25. Matt says:

    George Jetson toothbrush and Hanna channeling her inner Scooby Doo… is Hanna’s last name Barbara?

  26. Damien Walder says:

    FOOM? I have to admit that now, I want a toothbrush that combustible…

    Do I smell tangerine, or gasoline?

  27. marion says:

    OH my god. I have been wearing Eve’s little outfit all summer.

    It’s much cuter on her :)

    Nice Wavves reference in the alt text.
