    I don’t know why Alley Oop has been kept going for 70 years. I feel it should have died with Lee Harvey Oswald.

    I am glad Watterson ended this strip at its peak instead of trying to shoehorn unfunny and dated material in like so many other cartoonists.

    This is particularly funny because the strip shows just a bunch of xeroxed talking heads.

    I like how he tried to break that comic barrier, I really like “Pearls Before Swine” because it does it all the time.

    Insert shameless plug here: If you like Calvin and Hobbes, got read “Pearls Before Swine” Patsis is the best comic strip out right now in my own opinion.

    Ink Pen and Sherman’s Lagoon are also pretty fantastic and well worth following. Though I disagree with Derkins – I wish that Watterson had kept at it until the quality actually did start to decline.

    Yes! Except that each box is ever so slightly different. So we must ask ourselves… are they really xeroxed?

    (And I think the answer is no).

    Is this the one and only mention of Grandpa?

    I know other people who take the comics pretty seriously. . . .

    No, there was also the time he left his cigarettes that Calvin was allowed to smoke—to show why he never wants to do it again.
