Raise your hand if you remember when the Dick Tracy comic strip became a cartoon on TV. If you do, you’re gettin’ up there, but you’re in good company. The yellow-fedora-wearing crime-fighter turns 75 tomorrow, and to commemorate the longevity of the brand, Classic Media has released the Dick Tracy Complete Animated Series DVD set. (Just for the record, the cartoon ran from 1961 to 1964. And we feel suddenly ancient.) Among notable figures jumping on the bandwagon, a letter of congratulations will be sent to current strip writers Jean Gould-O'Connell and Dick Locher from President Bush; Gov. Rod Blagojevich will declare Oct. 4 "Dick Tracy Day" in Illinois (where the strip began); State Rep. Jack Franks said a proclamation will be entered in the Illinois House of Representatives declaring "Dick Tracy Day"; State Sen. Pamela Althoff will do likewise in the State Senate; and US Representative Judy Biggert will introduce a resolution and proclamation in Congress declaring Oct. 4, 2006 as "Dick Tracy Day." Don’t any of these people Work?
