    What’s next, is Tracy going to visit with his old friend who happens to be a carrot-chewing prankster rabbit?

    And just in time to return to Murder Mansion for the big Sunday strip.

    What you “yam” is Douglas McArthur? Hardly ex-Navy! Anyway, now that this arc is over, let’s move on to more important things – like busting that meth lab that Slim Skinner runs in the GA garage.

    Maybe B.O. and Gertie have relatives in Dogpatch.

    Nice finish on this one :) Even Dick Tracy deserves a peaceful respite from time to time…..

    It’s a play on Popeye nothing to do with Navy in this respect….

    I think this was great. It humanizes Dick and his family. We probably needed a little break as much as they did. I notice that Popeye was never shown, even though he was obviously referenced. That was the right way to do it.

    So, for the purposes of the strip, Dick is “ex-Navy.” I know someone here said that may not be a very accurate description, but there it is. As for Popeye, I suspected he might be ex-Navy, though I don’t know if that ever came up in the Popeye strip.

    What is that toy that Joe is playing with? It looks like an old jet like a DC-3 of something. It doesn’t seem to have many windows for a jet. I realize that the drawing is somewhat simplified, but it kind of looks like a cross between a 747 and the Space Shuttle. If not, it’s some kind of shark-shaped submersible (sort of shark-shaped at least).
