  1. I’ve got to say they look like brother and sister.

    • No wonder he thinks her nose is cute. It runs in the family.

  2. She doesn’t look too happy in the original here.

    • True. But at least she knows now that she has a cute nose.

  3. It’s interesting how few changes were needed to age him to Uncle Sam. A little grey in the hair and eyebrows, a few wrinkle lines and he’s 40 years older. Still horny, but older.

    • Unfortunately, Dave, it’s also amazing how few changes it takes to age those of us who aren’t cartoon characters!
