Richard, apparently you aren't the only cartoonist who celebrates Beethoven's birthday.

I love your Beethoven birthday pieces and that drawing you did of Beethoven (I think you posted it last year) is one of my favorite images ever!

That really made me laugh. As a student, I had a Beethoven statuette on my window sill. He lacked a nose, but I loved him all the same.

For some reason, even with instructions about "Ode to Joy" as the backdrop, I couldn't help but hear the lyrics sung to the tune of the theme to the "Beverly Hillbillies". Which I think really says something about my cultured upbringing...

Funny, my hair gets staticky like that in the wintertime too.

That second panel never fails to bring a guffaw. (I think it's the little chart.)

I love the baby Ludwig van... So angry, such bushy eyebrows, and the hair...oh the hair... snort, giggle, wheeze...

When Schroeder used to go to the closet and get a new bust of Beethoven and a new piano, I always thought it would be cool to have my own Beethoven bust.

Of course, I was young and didn't realize that his estate wasn't earning a portion of the sale of said busts.

Thanks for this cartoon! It made me smile.

@Randy...I sang it to "The Beverly Hillbillies", too. Hey! It worked!
