    Well is this the end of this strip and the beginning of a new one? Or will it drag out a little longer with Alley getting upset over being the monster for the book that Mary writes. Let’s see…

    Nice of the Bender’s to spell it out for all of us who couldn’t figure out where the story was going. 8*)

    There is a typo above; 79 is the number (and not 789).

    This happens to me too.

    Morning, Oopsters.
    Panel 6 – How many people hold a sandwich like that?

    Some support for the theory that if you go back in time, you don’t have to worry about changing history because whatever you do is what happened.

    Whatever happened, happened…
    How about Mary Shelly came up with the idea from her own imagination?

    @Ray Jones

    I’ve never verbalized that concept, but in the Alley Oop universe it seems to work that way.
    I need to go back and look at particulars. I do remember when Oop met Will Rogers, History came about due to Oop’s interaction. I remember reading where Dinny was mistaken for Nessie. And I believe he was was one of Alexander’s generals. Oop and Oscar were on opposite sides of the Battle of Hastings and brought about that result.
    You have a point. It does hold true for the Oop saga.
    But then, There was “Quantum Leap”, but thats another story

    What a surprise ending. I never saw this one coming. Did anyone else?

    Good Morning Benders, John Wooley, and readers of Alley
    Oop. Alley’s recuperating at the time lab. I wonder what
    kind of sandwich he likes. A Hero sandwich, a Ham sandwich, a BLT , endless possibilities. Just the thought
    makes me hungry for a sandwich and a classic science
    fiction story.

    WOW, Look at that, Alley Oop reading. He has come a long way from dragging his knuckles on the ground.

    Assuming you mean ST-TOS, the only one I can see is “City on the edge of forever” where Kirk fell in love with Joan Collins and either Bones or Spock stopped him from saving her life. They really did not cause it, but they did not stop it either.
    In the OK Corrall and episode they were put into a scenario as the Clanton/McLaury group and had to far the Earps. But there were not In Old Tombstone.
    The Gangster episode was ao a world that fashioned itself from American Gangster flicks of the 30s and 40s. But then we See the film from TNG, First Contact, Riker and company went to the past and helped Zephram Cochrane fly the first Warp powered ship in time for a passing Vulcan ship to notice.
    Are there others?
    Other excursions into the past were to observe or retrieve something (Time’s Arrow)

    How did the “monster” end up handsome in Shelley’s book?
