    An all new Monday is what we should expect. New panels, will it be a new story. I hope not. Finish this one please.

    That’s a good thing. People can just read the Sunday edition and get most of the week’s action, then Monday the story for us daily reader continues.

    This story arc is clearly just part of a bigger story. Who’s operating the time machines that sent Yochi to Moo? (And then Ooola and Alley to Chichen Itza.) Does that have anything to do with the mysterious man from Mondovia, who appeared in Moo some time ago, and left with Lola (who was pretending to be Ooola). For that matter, is there also a link with the Earth 2 story? Will the mysterious time-travel mischief maker cause more trouble?
    As Emerson might have said, if he were posting here: a comic is a journey, not a destination. Let’s enjoy the story as it unfolds, and not be impatient about getting to the end.

    1. Monday strip preview:
    I prefer to get new drawings on sundays or better, a different story on Sundays just like what existed in the past…

    2. The Time machine.

    We are all aware that such machine cannot exists (physics and religious reasons). I will let you discuss about the physical reasons and just say about the religious reason:

    We are said to have a free wil and that the future is not written. So if I go to the past (your past, reader) and if I tell you about your future, this will prove that the future is written and we do not have free will.

    Also, with current technology, it is very easy to go to the past, in Sinai mountain at Moses (Moshe) times and talk to him with a loud voice and display a non burning tree.

    3. I love Alley Oop and it fills my needs. It allows me to know about past history for example, read all the stories that involves time travels ;-:)

    I forgot to tell in my point #3:
    Learning about different customs can lead to respect for these different cultures. I would never know that Moïse name is Moses in English or Moshe in Jew if I do not liked Isaac Hayes or work with Jews children…

    There is no Halloween for Christians, but seing children faces with smile is better than silver or golden coins in the pocket.

    Thanksgiving is also something I really like, but in France we do not have this.

    From last Sunday:
    “You’ll at least like the comments, if nothing else.”
    You were right. It’s pretty much “nothing else.”
    But I’ll stay a bit longer. Something has to happen sometime… doesn’t it?

    Every Sunday the Benders show us that they only have 2 days of material, but by only showing 2 panels per day and adding needless filler they make it last all week.

    And they get paid for it!

    It’s time to put down that chocolate drink! It’s distorting your perception of reality.

    This is like the old format for Alley Oop and a few other comics where the week’s action is covered in the Sunday “colored” comics.

    I’m wondering if Oscar has anything to do with this time travel Snafu. He has monkeyed with Time travel before

    perhaps it is the fault of the Benders, perhaps I have just outgrown Oop, but this strip is not near as cool as I remember reading as a kid. Sunday as a recap? I may have just lost interest…

    Good Morning Benders and all A recap day, so a cup of hot
    cocoa on a cool fall day does sound nice.

    what they do on Sundays now is just lazy. As for the story it was lame and dumb with the characters acting out of character, with all of the buildup for the sake of the stupid origin-of-the-alley-oop joke.
    will we ever know what happened to ooola while while she was on her chocolate high? now that would be interesting!
