    Yep . . . just as I stated yesterday.

    Ooola is flashing back to when she became Munda Wunch (that is the pic of what she looked like back in the early 30’s). That was the stage name they gave her. Now, the producer in the 1980’s, you recall, sent Oop back to find out whatever had happened to Munda Wunch. Here’s where the time travel thing comes in.

    In that arc, Ooola was getting kidnapped by goons hired by a rival studio to kidnap her. That studio had Oop playing in a movie and they wanted Munda(Ooola) out of the way so their movie starring Oop would get all the attention. Oop saw it happening and chased the goon’s car. It crashed after Oop threw a hammer and hit the driver in the head. A fight ensued, the police came and took away the goons. Meanwhile, Doc was watching all this in his studio and brought them back to the 1980’s. Oop and Ooola just disappeared into thin air while the cops and all were watching.

    So, that solved the mystery of why Munda Wunch had disappeared without a trace back in the 30’s. The Hollywood producer had his answer. He then asked Ooola to star in movie he was making “The Munda Wunch Story”.

    So Ooola had actually acted twice before this. BTW, that arc went from 9/18/80 to about 1/5/81. Lots of story action and 3 or 4 panels a day, 6 days a week. That same story nowdays would have taken 6 or 8 months to tell, with a lot less detail in the art work.

    Morning, Oopsters.

    Good synopsis, Wootitoot. What’s really funny is that it took Carole this long to mention it. I think she was reminded of Ooola’s previous acting career by none other than the commenters here, and had to scramble to put it in her story.

    I’ve forgotten how this arc began. Didn’t Oop and Ooola just want to see a movie, but ended up on this lot in the wrong time period? But the various time eras are all jumbled in my head (as well as most everything else).

    On the waning days of a glorious but cool summer,
    greetings to the Benders, John Wooley, and the readers
    of Alley Oop. Nice to see Ooola reminiscing of a earlier
    younger self acting during a time adventure. Studio
    Head Keltner just wants a lookalike body to finish this
    cash pit of a movie. Director Karstein is already thinking
    beyond this picture, possibly as his discovery, if Ooola
    can be more than easy on the eyes, and can act, being
    more than a extra.
