Oops. I forgot my new feature- Throwback Thursday.
So, better late than never, here’s the very first appearance of Lowell.
If you’ve ever wondered why Lowell has the haircut, glasses and build that he does- this is why.
I admit, shaping a character for the sake of a sight gag is pretty lazy. But Lowell wasn’t supposed to take on the… large silhouette… that he has. I just thought he’d be the irritating neighbor. Of course, as his thoughtlessly cruel behavior became more useful for storytelling and for leaving a lingering bitter (acquired) taste in the mouths of readers, he stuck around for the fun.
