    Good Morning, AO Readers!

    Uh Oh . . .

    Looks like Ooola should have been more careful of what she asked for, if you catch my drift!

    Alley’s gonna beam in and save her and she’s still going to be mad at him!!!!!!

    So now is Ooola going to fall off a cliff and get killed also?

    Now you know that couldn’t possibly happen…could it?

    There’ll be no defibrillator for Oola.

    Morning, Oopsters.
    I’ve always liked the use of the word “meanwhile” in the Alley Oop stories. Hamlin started this convention himself. It shows that the time relationship between the time lab and Moo is linear. If two weeks have passed for Oop, two weeks have likewise passed for Ooola. It avoids the time paradox problem.

    It’s inconvenient to turn my computer sideways to see the last panel.

    Yes, it is. Fortunately God gave us an imagination, and a neck, the judicious use of which resolves the inconvenience issue.
    I prefer to use the imagination, since it opens up all sorts of other possibilities, but the neck works pretty good too.
    Shake a leg, Oop!

    Isn’t it interesting that even though Moo is thousands of years ago, the time-line moves at the same rate, otherwise Alley could go back to Moo before he left, or even after Ooola, Guz et al were gone!

    Good Morning Benders and readers of Alley Oop. I am
    impressed, a real Perils of Pauline cliff hanger moment
    for Ooola. Being on a cliff, at least she is not looking for a
    plant or a insect. Let’s see if she’s better than Alley in
    reasoning with animals, this one being a saber tooth tiger.

    “What kind of adventure could she have?”

    sheesh! can alley really be that clueless and dumb? ooola lives in moo with dinosaurs and other wild beasts! and wizer!

    wait. sorry, i forgot for a moment: this is carole’s version of an inconsiderate, sitcom-style oop. she does not give him much credit for intelligence or empathy. imo, i don’t think she has a very high opinion of men. this occurs frequently in her portrayal of oop and other male characters.

    Oh Boy, This is Great and exciting….finally
    Sure glad we got out of that Doctor’s office
    Now Alley can do what Alley does best …..
    Thump on wild beast and eat Bear/Cat stew.
    And maybe get a little Snuggle from Ooola Boola

    When you think the writing can’t get any worse, Carole starts writing about the :tiny tunnel". Not to be outdone, Jack has to chip in with artwork that looks like something a 12 year-old would turn out. Two thumbs down, Benders.
