ZOMBY at 100: pants or no pants?



Ladies and gentlemen of the jury,

I realized recently that I had passed something of a milestone with ZOMBY!!! Sometime this last week, I posted the 100th installment of the series. I'm up to something like 103 as of this writing. Anyhow, over the course of 100+ cartoons, I have noticed that Zomby/Ziggy comes in three basic "flavors," if you will:



So as part of recognizing little Zomby's 100th anniversary, I thought I'd give you the current totals for each of these categories.

PANTS = 21 TIMES
NO PANTS = 57 TIMES
UNDETERMINED = 25 TIMES

The clear winner here is NO PANTS, which has more cartoons than the other two categories combined.

Thank you for your continued patronage.

  2. Yes, except for the "undetermined," which is like a quarter of them. It happens when Ziggy's either driving or seated at a table (or sometimes reading a newspaper, which is enough to cover the entire lower half of his body). Knowing what I know about the character -- which at this point rivals what Tom Wilson I & II must know -- I'll assume Ziggy's pantsless in most of these scenarios as well.
