    Aargh! The dreaded baby pictures!

    Is that a beard Alvin is sporting along with his long hair and sideburns, or is it just the ribbed neck of his shirt? Inquiring minds want to know…

    That’s a strip late in the run – I often wondered why Marty ended the strip – it was still funny.

    A) That’s his turtleneck-check the cuff.
    B) That’s called Blackmail: be good or we’ll show your baby pix to your date! Alvin’s Mom just wasted a good behaviour ticket!

    Hi annieB! I sure wish I could answer that one. But… if ole Alvin is sporting a beard there at his age he’ll be at the store buying razors by the truckload!!

    Hi retropop. I ventured into Marty’s life in 1989 well after her retirement(1979) and wondered the same thing. Her office was wallpapered in Emmy Lou panels and I’d read those panels on the wall and ask that same question. I’m really glad everyone seems to be enjoying Emmy Lou again.

    My mother wondered why I was single and without a girlfriend for as long as I was. There was the threat of my baby pictures that included those of me being potty trained. My brother did not have as many photos taken of him as a infant and toddler. He had a long list of girlfriends and unsuccessful relationships with women. I married late in life and was widowed early. My second marriage is strong with a lovely daughter. Both of my wives were loved by my mother and my brother’s only wife only had my mother wishing that the girl would be “turned into a lizard and have a cat eat her.”

    It’s weird, but Alvin looks younger than Emmy Lou. Maybe it’s because he’s pouting.

    I agree with you. The potty training ones would’ve done me in too. Been there…done it!!
