Joe Dator, fresh off his win at the NCSFest (he won in the category of Best In Gag Cartoons), headed to Japan with his traveling companion, Walter Groovy. I asked Mr. Dator to talk a little about Mr. Groovy:
Well, he’s the doughy balding middle aged man who shows up in my cartoons quite a bit, enough so that I gave him a name. I took him to Australia in 2017, he was with me at the Reuben Awards in CA last week, and I’m probably taking him with me to Italy later this year.
