Seeking fame Bill left his home and went to the Big Apple, New York. He was turned down by a number of high profile comic strips but accepted by Bloom County where he became wealthy. His fame got the better of him reducing him to a drug taking wreck but he was saved by friends.
Opus the Penguin is also a star of Bloom County. It seems that Bill was involved in a car accident, on the famous route 66 in a ferrari, in which he was killed, DNA recovered from his tongue and then recreated to then run for president of the United States -- what a star. Bill the cartoon cat also ran off to be a Rajaneeshee culturist in Oregon. He called himself, Bhagwan Bill! This was the time I guess when such movements were popular.
Eventually Bill became a Republican upsetting his democratic friends. In the comic strip Bill consistently choaked in his hairballs. His dialogue being reduced to "Ack, ack, ack". He starred in a film called: Orangestoke: The Legend of Bill, Lord of the Monkeys and Terms of Bills Endearment and a slasher flick.
