    Dill’s got a surprisingly good tan for the winter season.

    Aye, indeed! The colorist must have erred, unless that is part of Alice’s crazy dream….

    That’s why none of the lids fit the pots anymore!

    I dimly remember something kind of like this for my first new year’s as a kid.

    I’ve done some Google-type research, and believe that the character with the hat is Nara, not Dill. See the 12/28/07 Cul de Sac. Wikipedia says that she’s a black character.

    I don’t know if it was intentional — Mr. Thompson told the colorist (s)he had it wrong 1/1/09 and it was changed here, or the colorist inadvertently slightly changed all the colors from what it was (click image for enlarged 1/1/09)

    not just Dill or Nara (whichever it is).

    The 12/28/07 strip is in b&w; but, if you hadn’t said the other girl is black, I wouldn’t have guessed it — even in b&w, that can be conveyed.

    I know; I need to get a life.

    You have life, just ignore others. Don’t apologize just do it.

    Well, you can’t fool me. That’s Dill’s hat, and Dill’s wheels, and if that ain’t Dill, tan or no, I’m a rutabaga.

    Dill and Beni merged into one weird child.

    That is Dill in his strange Winter hat he wears.

    Regarding the 12/28/07 strip, the 12/28/12 rerun resolves my issue with it.

    I can’t believe it. Nara stole Dill’s hat and kiddie car!
