For those of you who don't know who George Liquor is, here are some highlights of his history.

George Liquor's personality and humor is a combination of classic situation comedies and cartoon humor at the same time. The personalities are grounded in reality but very exaggerated. You can identify with the personalities and situations and motivations, yet impossible cartoon stuff can happen too.
My influences are not just cartoons but old TV comedies like The Honeymooners, All In The Family, Get Smart and The Bevery Hillbillies. These were all really strong character comedies. The writing was all about who the characters were and how they played off each other in certain situations.
I think these are drawn by Chris Reccardi.
Ren and Stimpy was also a combination of personality sitcom humor with outlandish cartoon jokes.
