Two To Tango

possum trot

draw me a picturePam and Sam over at One Spoiled Cat requested that I draw ES with a partner of his choice doing a “totally torrid tasteless tango.”  Complete with the tacky rose between the teeth.  I had actually drawn this exact scene a long time ago (see below), but came up with something different this time.  I have a feeling that Buster was NOT ES’s partner of choice to do the dance of love with, but that blonde wig covering up Buster’s mangy possum locks was a pretty good disguise… or at least was a good enough disguise to fool cartoon characters.  Undoubtedly, many of ES’s friends are in attendance snapping photos of this dirty dancing and blowing up social media with the irrefutable evidence of a night that ES will never be able to live down.  Something tells me this tango will not be continuing once the dancing is over…

A few notes on the submissions I’ve received so far…..

–Unlike Prompt the Squirrel, you can submit as many ideas as you like!  Please keep those ideas coming early and often!

–About half of the drawing suggestions I’ve received so far are more movie scenes like last week.  That’s fine, but I’d like to keep some week to week variety with this series so they’ll be spaced out appropriately.

–Someone, who knows who he is, didn’t read the rules and submitted a suggestion asking for the whole gang.  These should be quick, relatively easy pics for me to draw that take no more than 30-45 minutes.  I’m not going to dedicate hours to drawing anything for this series.

Ain't happening.

Ain’t happening.

–Have fun!  And I’ll draw something else for someone next Tuesday…

  1. pawsome possum tango… that tango must be hot when even the wig melted away LOL

  2. Perfect! You “saw” what I was thinking and drew it just right……right down to the tacky platform red strappy (Lady In Red) high heels….love the twist you gave it though with a surprise dancing partner. I also like your 2011 version – although I think ES’s hand should have been on Sprot’s butt.


    • I was kicking myself for forgetting the Lady in Red reference in the post since that was exactly why I made Buster’s dress red. Sprots was kind of a “Mortal enemy” of ES’s back in the day, and putting ES’s hand on her derriere would have probably resulted in both ES and myself having gotten killed back in the day!

    LOL! I love this one! Poor ES looks quite horrified. I certainly didn’t see this version of the Possum Trot coming!

    The darn wig always falls off at the most inappropriate of moments…

  6. LOL! That’s GREAT! I am now humming Pearl Bailey song “It takes two to Tango”
    LOL! The possum trot. Graceful! (not!)

    Snorts! Love it! Tango tango. Such a romantic dance. I think I saw mom/dad attempting it the other night in the living room when we didn’t have television. Evil snorts. XOXO – Bacon
