Richard Scary: Then and Way-Back-Then

Will the Brave Hero rescue the Beautiful Screaming Lady? Not in 1991, he won't. Remember Richard Scary? Lowly Worm and Huckleberry Fox? Well, I'll bet you didn't know they got a PC makeoever in the early nineties, did you? Click on the picture above to see a slide show comparing the two editions. Kids these days may go to the kitchen to eat their breakfasts, but Graham will come promptly when he called.

This scanning-and-comparing thing is very Dad... interesting.

Wow! That's fascinating!

As to coming when called, I think I'm guilty of once saying to Isaac, "I don't care if it's Jesus himself calling you the other direction, you come to ME when I call." *blush*

Well, David didn't actually scan and compare - he just found the site. If he had time to actually scan and compare two books that have nothing to do with theology, I would think that it would be time to leave Duke and pursue another calling.......

p.s. Sarah, I think that's funny :) Being a mom changes everything!

I categorically reject both the idea that Richard Scarry's Best Word Book Ever has nothing to do with theology and that, even if it did, attention to it would signal that it's time to leave Duke and pursue another (more lucrative?) calling.

Noooooooooo ... say it ain't so ... editing Richard Scarry is like editing the NIV and creating the monstrocity of the TNIV;o)
