This post is for my Frogwoman blog and my Maskripper blog, it really fits well into both in my opinion.
For today I wanna post a short article about a short comic scene that always excited me since I saw it as a child. Back then, of course, I didn’t understand why I liked that scene so much, but later I got it. It seems like a normal, harmless comic scene in a harmless comic for children. But it fuels several fetishes, and I wanna show that scene to you, so you can understand.
A witch (Gundel Gaukeley) wants to steal the lucky “coin” from Dagobert Duck. She dresses like a woman from an insurance company that wants to insure that coin for free. She uses a blonde wig to disguise her identity (a little weird, that that is enough to fool her arch enemy…but ok). So Dagobert shows the room where the coin is placed.
That room is filled with gas, so they need to use gas masks to enter it. And she uses this opportunity…..

….to rip his gas mask off (!), he collapses and can’t stop her from stealing the priceless coin.
What is so exciting in that scene?
Well, basically it fuels two of my fetishes:
1) The “masked women”-fetish:
She uses a wig to mask herself so he wouldn’t recognise her. (ok, not a sexy Batgirl cowl, but…it’s a start)
Then she even puts a gas mask on. In fact a second mask. Now she is perfectly masked and disguised!
2) scuba/breath control/gas mask – fetish
Ok, she isn’t using scuba gear, but a “breathing device” to enter that room full of gas.
And that sudden act of betrayal, when she rips his gas mask off (unmasking) and thereby forces him to inhale the gas…..damn, very exciting stuff 😉
This “act of betrayal” aspect, can be found in my favorite movie as well. In THUNDERBALL, Angelo, the trapped pilot, thinks that Largo will help him out of his jammed seat harness.
But instead he cuts his air hose and drowns him. (link to the video on Frogwoman.org)
Ok, much more ….evil …like in this cartoon…but it has as well this sudden betrayal/attack.
Well, and this week, I got that comic book that I had read as a child (after a long period of research to find that comic).
And now I understand why that scene attracted me back then.
Still love that scene!
Ok, that scene could be improved as well:
In my version he would quickly react, attack her, trying to rip her gas mask off to use it for himself 😉
What do you folks think about this scene?
Can you remember some of your first contact with mask and/or scuba fetish?
