    You’re one odd father, you know that, Peter Otterloop, Sr.?

    I think he’s just shy . . . and would prefer a closer relationship with his kids, but he’s just not very good at it.
    Petey probably got Pete, Sr. off to a shaky start.

    OMG! This brings back traumatic childhood memories—except that in my case the offender was an uncle—big, loud, boisterous, and with no sense of when he was scaring a little kid….

    Pappa Otterloop is overcompensating for not having a dotiful father.

    Why doesn’t every comic strip artist just make comic strips like this with kid characters? I’d rather see a hundred different takes on this idea of a comic strip than comic strips that focus on non-believable animal characters or adult characters. Adults make great comic book heroes and boring comic strip characters. MAKE MORE KID STRIPS! Stop trying to be “original” by giving us comic strips about circles or lamp shades or whatever.

    Love Petey and Alice’s postmortem panels.

    9 months ago a comment was posted on this strip’s archive.

    3 months later it was replied to, and

    another 3 months later, the reply was replied to by the author of the first comment.

    I may check for a reply made to a previous day’s comment of mine, but 3 months??

    I found it interesting anyway.

    I have a good explanation for that, but I’m not going to post it until April. Check back then.

    Yes, I love the way they relate to each other.

    My Dad would tickle me until I cried, then continue till I barfed.
    Not the best memory.

    I hated the tickling when I was young too. But I think that Peter is just bouncing Alice. I think it would be too hard to bounce and tickle at the same time. Besides, I don’t think Peter is sadistic.

    @Night-Gaunt49

    Since the rerun started, I like to compare what was said before to what’s being said now.
