I’ve been drawing comics since my brother gave me his Peanuts comics books as a kid. I’m sure you couldn’t tell a resemblance between Charles Schulz’s stuff and mine, so I wanted to point that out. 😉

“I’m Telling Mom!” actually began life as a comic strip called “WonderBrat” that I created when I was about 10 years old. You can see some of the WonderBrat books I created decades ago on the “WonderBrat Books!” link below.


WonderBrat was nearly identical to this strip, except that Harold occasionally turned into a superhero named, as you may have guessed, WonderBrat. I hadn’t been coming up with many new ideas for WonderBrat in recent times, but had lots of ideas about the kids themselves, so I changed the name of the strip to reflect that. I called the comic “Hamstertails” for a few years online, and a while back changed the name again to “I’m Telling Mom!”.


As of Jan. 2016, “I’m Telling Mom!” is currently on hiatus.  I am taking a break from it to work on my new comic strip, Oscar and Annie!  Please come see me there!  In the meantime, there’s tons of stuff to explore here, and I hope you’ll come enjoy my new comics as well.

The Hamster Chewed at Midnight!

This book is based on my real-life hamster George that I had as a kid.  It also includes all of the usual nonsense, chicanery and tomfoolery that you've come to expect!  All at no additional cost to you, the reader.

AND - as if that weren't enough - I have also included a comic book that I drew as a wee lad, all the way back in 1980!  It tells the tragic true story of George the hamster and Fluffy the cat, all hand-drawn in pencil by me on my mum's kitchen table.

A fantastic bargain, at any price, I'm sure you'll agree!

So settle in, grab a snack, and dig right in!

Enjoy,

Gary

Goose Liver Surprise!

As a kid, my mom sometimes fed me sandwiches with an odd, spreadable lunch meat she called "goose liver."

I've since come to learn that no geese (and maybe even no livers) are actually involved. Some people call it Braunschweiger or liverwurst. 

Regardless, I thought it was a delicacy as a kid.  I haven't touched the stuff in years, but have found that the mere name makes it perfect for comic strips.  If you're gonna be fed gross, questionable luncheon meat as a kid, you might as well get some use out of it later in life, right? :-)

Anyhow, expect to find the usual hijinks and nonsense in the pages to follow.

Enjoy!

It's the continuing adventures of all the characters you know and love from the webcomic "I'm Telling Mom!" at tellingmomcomics.com by Gary L. Fetters.

Join Jimmy as his arms nearly fall off while setting a new record on the Galaga machine at the local arcade!  Cheer on Benji as he nearly drowns while taking forced swimming lessons, and recoil in terror as he discovers the horrors of artificial Christmas trees!  And, watch as Harold tries in vain to maintain his sanity in the midst of it all!

You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll want your money back!  But you can't have it!  Because I'll have long since spent it on frivolous things that won't bring me true happiness!

Maybe I'll spend it all on grammar lessons and try to learn how to end a sentence in something other than an exclamation point!

Only time will tell!

The Mighty WonderBrat!

Come join the world-famous Caped Third-Grader, The Mighty WonderBrat, on his crime-fighting exploits!  He is occasionally joined by his bestest superhero buddy, The Amazing Zitman, who flings his patented Acne-Dust™ onto unsuspecting criminals, making them wish they'd never been born!

As his name implies, WonderBrat isn't always the best-behaved of superheroes.  Or the most enthusiastic.  He's usually much more interested in catching up on Gilligan's Island reruns than answering his fellow citizens' cries for help, but when he does finally spring into action, you can rest assured that he'll probably get the job done, at least to some degree!

Watch as he gets stuck in a porta-potty, looks for a missing sandwich, and breaks a lot of windows in the process!

Just don't call him if you're in trouble, unless you don't mind waiting until at least the next commercial break!
