Comic #2254

1 Monty: It's Charon, Ferryman of the Underworld!
2 Charon: Well I'm glad to see someone knows their classical mythology.
3 Prof. Jones: No, Junior, Charon is a wizened old man, not a skeleton.
3 Minnesota Jones: He's skeletal in some depictions.
4 Prof. Jones: That proves nothing. We'd need to do some research.
4 Charon: I'm right here, you know.

Charon was originally depicted as a more or less normal looking ancient Greek mariner. Over the centuries and various other interpretations, he somehow became skinnier and more dessicated, until eventually we were left with a depiction as a skeleton in a robe.

As with many myths, all things are true.
