Beware The SIxTH

Star Wars Beware the Sith of May from Bearman Cartoons

Today is the day.  Beware of the Sith day.  All over Google Plus on friday I was unindated with posts about “May the Fourth Be With You” in reference to May 4 being Star Wars Day.  So of course I couldn’t go with the masses and needed to blaze my own trail.  Thus Beware the SIxTH of May.  Several people questioned me because there is already a “Revenge of the Fifth” but honestly with the typography and play on Sixth/Sith, mine is way better.

Charity Challenge Update

I can honestly say this is turning out already to be the most successful charity challenge yet only after one week.  So I thank all of you who have already done stuff or are planning to do more.  Let’s look at Week one Breakdown.

$10 for Using ME in their Cartoon –

$10 Blog about the Challenge

$5 Adding me to Blog Roll or Adding Banner

$5 because the Friggin Loon added a category to her posts called “Friggin Ohio Home of Bearman” because even though she is an Aussie somehow, 50% of her posts have to do with crazy people that live within 100 miles of me.

$1 for ever new follower on Google Plus at

392 NEW FOLLOWERS in a week.  That is more than has “liked” my facebook page in 3 years. haha

Which gives us a week 1 total of ………$482 more than double 2011


I had 3 people donate money to Crayons2Computers in honor of Bearman Cartoons

Holland Rhodes – $5

Shani Hiraoka – $25

Nancy Schreck – $25

So I will be matching those donations with $55 of my own at the end of the month

Please let me know if I missed anyone and if you want to get involved click on the image below.

    Love your new observance of the Sixth of May. You rock.

    I’ve added your banner to my sidebar…does that count?

    Have a terrific day. 🙂

  2. Nate Fakes says:

    I’m going to say it – I LIKE Star Wars, but I’m not a huge fan. Does that make me less of a man? Well, maybe, but I got tired of hearing “May the Fourth be with You” the other day. I like this one better.

    • Bearman says:

      I am probably like you. I really don’t get the whole Clone Wars thing. haha

    • Tony McGurk says:

      I’m less of a man too Nate cos I’m not a Starwars fan either. Congrats on so much charity success already Bearman. As I said before you’re a very kind & generous man

    • George says:

      I;’m right along with you, Nate. I respect and appreciate the concept behind Star Wars and Star Trek, I cannot make it thru any of the movies at all. I’m not huge on Sci-Fi. My favorite sci-fi movies have been Galaxy Quest and Starship Troopers. So that goes to show you how hapless I am. 🙂

  3. I like your sixth better as well. Congrats on the charity going so well.

  4. Bo Lumpkim says:

    You seem to be workin’ a lot harder lately and your stuff is lookin really great. Don’t burn yourself out.
    Glad the challenge is goin’ well.
    I’m doin’ as much promotin’ as I can. My sisters used up most of my time this week.

  5. Friggin Loon says:

    OMG, Bearman’s inner nerd has surfaced…!!!!!

  6. I see DEAD people!
    No, wait… different ‘Sixth’.
    My bad.

      Thanks Cat!!

      Right above the header to the blog is where you can click for RSS, Twitter, Facebook etc.

      You and I are already linked via G+ so that is good

      If you want email notifications look to the top right and then enter your email address there. When I post new things you will get notified.

  8. bschooled says:

    Of course yours is way better!

    Oddly enough, whenever I read “May the Forth Be With You” I imagine the person with a lisp…

  9. I’m of that generation of kids who had seen the first one when it came out… I think it’s something that everyone my age remembers seeing in the theater the first time, and being blown away by it. I’m still pretty fond of it.

  10. Gosh, Bear, I have to get my act together and mention this in my next post. You’re outdoing yourself each year…high-5 big guy!

  11. Killer design. Unfortunately Star Wars sank like a rock with me after the re-releases in the late 90’s. The franchise hit rock bottom with Jar Jar Binks. I have to say my nerd alliance is with Star Trek.

  12. Hi I have put a large poster of Beartoons on my widget please check whenever you get time and tell me If i have done it right

    • Bearman says:

      Wow…thank you thank you thank you. Another $5

      If you have a 125×125 banner ad I would be happy to add it to my site as well.

  13. George says:

    I love your take on the Star Wars stuff (very nice Sith). I’m also glad to see the Challenge is even more successful than last year’s already. I’ll be doing my part to help out very soon.

  14. Scott says:

    Holy help, Bearman–that’s alot of good will. Good going, and good going to all participating!

  15. James says:

    A Beautiful Darth maul Sir.

  16. lisleman says:

    I don’t even know how many Star Wars movies there were. I enjoyed the first few and remember taking my young daughter to one where she fell asleep. She is now married with 3 kids. Time flies. It was one of the later ones in the series that introduced Sith – right?

    • Bearman says:

      Yes. The first of the new ones. Episode I

      At least I don’t think the concept was in the original 3 but I don’t remember.

  17. I thought this was a much better idea than Revenge of the Fifth. 🙂

  18. DadaHyena says:

    Nice job…now watch as Star Wars nerds everywhere start pretending this was THEIR idea!

  19. I was lured here by Spilled Ink Guy’s many (er, two) references to Ohio in his blog post about you. You may appreciate that while I’ve never seen Star Wars, I got the word “sith” while playing Draw Something the other day and drew people winning 1st through 6th places at the Olympics (what?), circled the sixth one, and then wrote “-x”. I’m really, really good at this game.

    • Bearman says:

      Thank you Ms Mundane or should I call you Unapologetically?? Funny I haven’t played draw something. I might get way too distracted.

  20. In honor of Sith Day, I beat the crap out of several Star Wars fans.

  21. Tyler says:

    I like it. I appreciate any opportunity to wear a cape.

  22. Darth Maul was a popular costume in our house a few years ago. Now they prefer serial killers and Doctor Death. I think I liked Darth Maul better.
    Glad to hear the fundraiser is going well. Congrats.

  23. Deb says:

    Of course your is better, Bearman!

  24. Mark Stokes says:

    Great idea, Bearman, very inventive use of the light sabers! Love the Sith Lord art!
