    It’s time for Alley Oop’s new theme song:

    “I’m just a soul who’s intentions are good
    Oh Lord, please don’t let me be misunderstood.”

    Just wait till Ooola gets a good look at Lola!! Who do you think will faint first? I think I’ll put my money on Lola. Of course they could both faint at the same time!

    Now that would be good. Double faint. Which would Ally go to first? Which one should he go to first?

    Some friendly advice, Alley:

    Ooola, RED DRESS.
    Lola, BLUE DRESS.

    [Repeat as many times as necessary.]

    Now that I think about it, Lola and Ooola are actually pretty different.
    Lola’s kind of a weepy, wail-y kid. Ooola’s more of a force of nature.

    Makes me think of that one Star Trek episode where a transporter accident split Kirk in two. One Kirk was weak and indecisive; the other Kirk was overly aggressive and domineering.

    Interesting.

    When Earth 2 was first introduced some of us speculated that the Benders might use the Trek episode Mirror, Mirror [alternate universe where everybody had an “evil” twin] as a model. Looks like they used The Enemy Within instead.

    Could have been worse. They could have decided to go with The Trouble With Tribbles.

    they should really go back to doing a separate strip on sundays, rather than a recap of the week. especially since anyone who only gets a sunday paper can just go online and see what happened during the week if they want.

    And lest I forget…
    A very happy [and productive] New Year to all of us here at Alley Oop, GoComics.com, and the world in general. Blessings and Peace and Self-Mastery to One and All.

    Happy New Year everyone! I just resumed reading this comic after a long hiatus (15 years). Last time I read this comic was in the local paper before it dropped its evening edition (and this strip).

    Josh, welcome back. But you’re in for a shock. Over the last 15 years, Dave Graue, the artist who used to write and draw Alley Oop has died and the strip has been taken over by his assistant Jack Bender and Bender’s wife Carol. Unfortunately, they just don’t have the stuff that Graue had.

    Happy 2012! And here comes trouble for Alley Oop and Oola/Lola in the next few days…

    “Alley Oop!! How dare you?! Now I will turn and run away before I can see the hussy you’re with, and before Guz and Umpa can turn around and see me to clear up this mess!”
