A Wish For Wings That Work

You just want to hug him.

Has there ever been a more-likeable comic strip character than Opus?

The pudgy lil’ penguin has been a huge part of my life, from his ’80s heyday in the panels of Bloom County to all the side projects author Berke Breathed has put out in the years since.

This 1991 TV special, which follows Opus as he seeks a way to take to the skies above, is simple, sweet, yet also full of oddball jokes.

Whether you’re an old-school fan or a newbie, it’s a pretty dang good way to kill 23 minutes.
