Reigning Cats and Dogs cartoon - Roy Delgado

" After awhile, it's all BLAH, BLAH, BLAH to me. "


Thought I'd share my experiences with syndication a little right now . . .

I came close to being syndicated about 3-4 times, where the syndicates asked to see more material ( to look at the sustainability and quality of the comic ), but to no avail, I struck out every time.

My last one was about 2004-05 when United tried my daily comic panel, " JEST SPORTS " on line . . . it ran about 15-16 months, then they dropped it.

Creators tried an idea I had back around 1999, it was a daily panel about cats and dogs called " Reigning Cats and Dogs " . . . Later they thought it would not work having both cats and dogs in the came comic, so they deep-sixed the idea.

I really got excited back when Universal first began their syndicate around '75-76 . . . I had an idea for a strip called " BITZ and PIECES " . . They were just getting started and I was familiar with the people there, they were the best in the business.  So when they asked to see more, I didn't sleep for two weeks.  Didn't make it.  It's a wonder there aren't more alcoholic cartoonists.  I never had the problem, but I would understand someone in my shoes that succombed to the libations.
