Snagglepuss, After Years of Suspicion, Finally Out of the Closet

Snagglepuss By Billy Pilgrim, Codependent Collegian Rogue Editor

(Hollywood, CA)—Snagglepuss, a staple of children’s entertainment and Hanna-Barbara cartoons for over three decades, finally came clean about his oft-suspected homosexuality in an emotional press conference earlier this morning.

The conference was also used to announce a whistle-stop lecture tour of American colleges and universities to promote his new autobiography, Pink Like Me, which will commence at UCLA this August.

“Heavens to Mergatroid, it’s such a relief,” boomed Snagglepuss in typical melodramatic fashion. “I hope that I can set an example for gay cartoon characters who are still living in fear—and you know who you are, Freddie Jones. Don’t pretend like that night in Reno never happened, ee-ven.”

And while many in the gay community commend Snagglepuss’ newfound openness, some scoffed at the stereotypical hype that accompanied his revelation.

“It wasn’t all song and roses when I came out,” revealed Peppermint Patty. “When I told Charlie Brown and the rest of the gang, they acted like I was a leper. They even stopped eating lunch with me on the set [of Peanuts]. Let me tell ya, the ‘50s were a terrible time to be butch in this country.”
