A Word on Wild Takes



In the second to last panel, Alf does a wild take. For those not obsessed with cartoons, whenever a cartoon character's eyes get really huge (usually due to surprise), that is known as a wild take. When I was a kid, whenever I saw a wild take in a cartoon, I would lose it. I thought they were hilarious. I still do.

  1. I always like the sound effects that accompany the wild take. Never knew it is called that. Thanks for the lesson!
