The popular B.C. comic strip is honoring Broome County celebrity April the Giraffe in a special series being followed by an international audience.

B.C. cartoonist Mason Mastroianni and co-author Mick Mastroianni decided to give April more media attention coinciding with the season opening of Animal Adventure Park in Harpursville.

B.C. was created six decades ago by Endicott native Johnny Hart. After Hart died in April 2007, the B.C. tradition he started has been kept alive by his grandsons Mason and Mick.

During an interview on WNBF Radio’s Binghamton Now program, they remembered Johnny Hart and his love for Broome County. They recalled the contributions he made to a wide range of community organizations and causes.

Mason and Mick also talked a bit about themselves and what’s involved in coming up with daily installments of B.C. which continue to be enjoyed by millions of people around the world.

LISTEN to the Binghamton Now interview with Mason and Mick Mastroianni. The live interview was broadcast on May 16, 2017.
