It’s been a while since we’ve seen Mesba as anything other than a background gag! And we haven’t seen Peeko since I drew the strip in Illustrator and in black & white. Wow.
We created Mesba because we thought that not writing dialogue would mean he’d be a rich source of quick filler gags; turns out, it actually makes Mesba-centric jokes very difficult to write. Anyway, here he is teamed up with his namesake, the Roomba. It had to happen eventually.
And I know it’s in the Guardians of the Galaxy trailer, but I can only ever hear that song as a Big M ad. Which, of course, I can’t find on the internet; but if you were alive in Australia in the 90s, it’s now stuck in your head.
