    Good Morning, fellas!

    Well, it looks like Mary’s getting ideas . . .

    . . . even if she doesn’t realize it.

    Not bad!

    Morning, Oopsters.
    Alley doesn’t get it. Plants don’t bloom because the calendar says that it’s time to bloom. Plants don’t read calendars. Plants bloom when the climatic conditions are right for them to bloom.

    So Oop digs up a small amount of dirt to fill that little vial and Mary thinks they buried a body. What kind of body? A Barbie doll?

    Night-Gaunt49, your link took me to a GoComics.com page that said:

    I’m so excited about this storyline I could just take a nap.

    Can this plot move any slower?

    Good Morning Benders, John Wooley, and readers of Alley
    Oop. So, per Alley, they will walk until they find a plant.
    Right now they are on a plateau of a mountain. If it encircles
    the mountain, they will eventually get back to where they started. I hope there are signs pointing to paths, whether
    they are going up or down the mountain, or they might end up on the top of the mountain. Doc is a walking encyclopedia but worthless in suggesting where to
    walk to next. Alley just remembers, walk until find plant.

    Now that the Barbie Doll is burried and the calander still says, “Summer”, don’t you think it would be a good idea to move down the hill and fine leafs and life on a lower altitude ?

    in the first panel, how can alley fail to see mary standing in plain view holding that ridiculous parasol, no less?

    To be a fig plucker
    You don’t need a ticket
    Just grow yourself a fig
    The run up and pluck it

    there is very little that’s artistic about this strip, in the plotting, writing or the drawing. and if the benders ever had a license it expired long ago.

    Hey LoboGrande, you could be right.
    -
    When I tried again, the Hairy Green Eyeball site opened. Which yielded a few months worth of Alley Oop from 1957.

    Alas, the image is too small to read on my monitor, and I haven’t yet found a way to enlarge it. Workin’ on that.
