What’s a squicken? Simply put, a squicken is a flying squirrel with chicken wings, lab-created through genetic manipulation by Jerry Berry. Who’s Jerry Berry? A sort-of chicken with a berry-looking head, a failed aspirant in the American Idol contest for ten straight years.
Okay. We got that. So…who’s Sneaky Skunk? Is he related to the very first drug pusher to appear in CLUCKERS, the renowned Shady Skunk?
Uh…I’m not sure about that. All these comics were drawn in 2004-2005. While continuing to muck out our 40 foot semi trailer today, I came across another, larger batch of classic CLUCKERS cartoons from the black and white, pen and ink era. I do know that Sneaky did not go straight before he got caught by law enforcement, as Shady did. Instead, he went down hard, drawing a life sentence, exiled to Cold Turkey Island with the rest of the baddest of the bad. Also, those who might otherwise confuse one skunk with the other, Sneaky has a white patch with a black “M” in the center of it, positioned on the side of his neck.
Anyway, without further ado, here are the episodes relating to the career of Jerry Berry and the singing squicken.
And there you go. Jerry Berry escaped, but since it wasn’t the fault of the convicts from Cold Turkey Island assisting in the raid, the barnyarders did honor the deal. There will now be volunteer females to lighten the load, or at least to spice things up a bit.
There is also one more image that needs to be posted on this page. It’s not a cartoon, but rather a photo of the CLUCKERS mascot, an awesome ceramic chicken. Sir Cluckalot also showed up in one of the boxes stored in the semi trailer today.
