What is Pogo? Pogo Comic, also known as Pogo the Bear, was a monthly comic strip created by cartoonist Walt Kelly, and syndicated to US newspapers in 1948 until the end of 1975. Set in the Okefenokee Swamp located in the southern United States, Pogo follows the exploits of its anthropomorphically-centered animal characters, which include the series' main character, an ostentatious opossum named Pogo. The comic strip's popularity continues to this day, and Pogo the Bear has even received a feature in a large number of children's books.
In the world of Pogo bears, however, Pogo is not always as friendly as it appears to be. Sometimes he can be downright mean, such as when he chases after his enemy and tries to capture him. However, other times he proves to be the animalistic opposite of his human companions in that he willingly allows himself to be hurt so that others may live.
Pogo's life span in most instances is a few seconds, though this minute character can stretch out for many hours before finally succumbing to death. For this reason, Pogo bears have become somewhat of a mascot for American television shows such as "That 70s Show" and "Futurama." In these shows, Pogo is portrayed as an energetic, funny presence who enjoys chasing after dinosaur-like enemies instead of the more traditional enemies shown in most other forms of American cartoon characters.
Pogo's popularity as a cartoon character has led to a number of collections of different Pogo the Bear strips. These collections span over several decades, and are available for purchase on many websites online. In addition to Pogo the Bear, these collections generally feature other anthropomorphically based animals such as dolphins, monkeys, pigs, and cats.
Although Pogo bears may seem like simple creations, their life cycles are anything but. In fact, Pogo has three different life cycles, all of which contradict one another. The shortest life cycle is during the "pre-school" stage of Pogo's life. During this time, Pogo is just a baby with no arms or legs and very little in terms of personality.
The second life cycle is called the "teen" stage of Pogo's life. At this point in his comic strip career, Pogo is a teenager who is shown to be outgoing and intelligent. He often teams up with a frog named Funtime who is his best friend. At this point in his life, Pogo is ready to discover what it is he wants to do with his life. Unfortunately, he does not realize that the only way he will be able to accomplish this task is if he team ups again with Funtime.
Finally, Pogo reaches the "oldschool" stage of his life. At this point in his comic strip career, Pogo is shown to have formed several long lasting friendships that will affect the rest of his life. These relationships include those with his fellow classmates at school such as Diego, his best friend in the cartoon, his best pal in real life, Mr. Kong, his dog Chunk, and many others.
Pogo may be nothing more than an animated cartoon, but he has managed to touch the hearts of people across the globe. This is in part due to the popularity of the Pogo strip during the early 1990s. Today, Pogo is an institution. Children treasure Pogo as an animated cartoon and adults enjoy watching Pogo as a classic children's cartoon character.
Pogo is also responsible for kick-starting the video game industry. In the game version of the Pogo game, players are required to click on the pictures of Pogo, Diego, and their friends in order to advance to the next level. Once inside the game, one can continue clicking on the pictures to move on to the next level and earn points. While this game is similar to the majority of flash based games where one clicks on a picture in order to advance to a new level, it differs because it uses a technique called "banana stroke".
This technique is similar to the technique employed by Peppa Pig in that it lets the player see what is going on around them, even when they cannot be physically there! This allows Pogo to interact with his audience, allowing him to share a special bond with them and teach them valuable lessons about life, both in fun and in life! As a result, the game of Pogo has been played by millions of children worldwide!
Thanks to its consistent air time on TV and its massive fan following, Pogo is incredibly popular. This is particularly true of the game version of Pogo, which is used on countless television channels every single week! The game has become synonymous with fun, and has led to an entire industry built upon its very existence. Today, Pogo is seen as something that every child in the world can play, and for good reason! What began as a simple, cute game has grown into a world-class icon all across the globe!
