When last seen, hard-working bees Steve and Larry were discussing setting up hive-keeping with some nice girl bees of like mind. Here they can be seen toiling in the lush pollen fields, accompanied by Larry's new honey, Debbie, at the top of the picture. Steve's main lady, Harriet, has started a new job making bee-lines as well as tending to their new larvae.
When I saw the giant-ass doves in the wagon, I at first thought they were gourds, painted to represent the Schmoos, from Al Capp's "Li'l Abner" syndicated cartoon strip from the 1950s. Even now that I see the doves' beaks, they still look more like Schmoos to me.
