    Did Holly get back into his pack?

    Lightened the load just in time. Since the airscout was only designed to lift itself, it’s impressive that it had enough surplus lift to carry all that extra load.

    Good-Bye Rocket Payload (to this tune
    )


    Where are you gonna come down
    Where are you going to land
    I should have stayed in Endtown
    Should have listened to Holly’s plan

    You know you can’t hold on forever
    I didn’t have room for you
    I’m not a braincase for your boss to open
    This cat’s too young to be singing the blues

    [chorus]
    So goodbye rocket payload
    Where the mutts of Topsiders prowl
    You can’t snag me in your cables
    I’m going back to my town

    Back to my Holly and hole-in-the-ground
    Hunting the safer back road
    Oh I’ve finally decided my future lies
    Beyond the rocket payload

    Where do you think you’re landing?
    I bet this’ll shoot out your brain
    It’ll take you a couple of Topsider experts
    To set you on your feet again
    Unfortunately there’s replacements
    But they’ll wind of just where your bound
    Mutt-bots who ain’t got a conscience
    Scattered in bits just like you on the ground

    [chorus]

    Nice one, Level. And I always liked Elton John.

    Level_Head: thanks for the ttto. I guessed the tune, then saw the reference. Again, thanks for the reference.
    Interesting how the tail bushes a bit in flight. Was this a normal tail bush situation, covered in wind?
    Also I am not sure what is holding up that air vehicle, it does seem that it is not reactionless, it needs something to push against, and thus the dirt plume.

    I think that you’ve called it.
    When Al and Gustine
    Had overweight-stalled it,
    That landing was mean

    But though it was dropping
    It could slow them down
    And keep them from stopping
    Quite dead on the ground

    I don’t know what holds it aloft
    That plume isn’t “cushion of air”
    But now there’s a landing quite soft
    Much better than Mutts would prepare!

    There are no fans or vent-holes below
    No blades, jets, or rocket exhaust
    Externally, nothing does show
    But there must be an energy cost

    I think that a force-field’s implied
    Reactionless motor? Perhaps.
    At least our hero-pair hasn’t died
    And we aren’t here now playing “Taps”

    We see in that last Panel 4
    A blast of the wasteland-dust-stuff
    But I’ve seen such dust-ups before
    Just high speed through the air is enough

    Look at Wally with ears streaming back
    And the swoop of their dive from the sky
    Wally’s fierce-looking, poised to attack
    Any Mutt he encounters will die

    While the airscout was falling from weight
    (As it had been with Al and Gustine)
    Fearsome Wally unloaded that freight
    And the artwork is once again keen!

    I’VE JUST SEEN A FACEENDTOWN VERSION (To the tune of “I’ve Just Seen a Face” by Lennon/McCartney, the Beatles)

    I’ve just seen a face, I can’t forget
    The shining casing and the metal skin
    With happy eyes and grin
    Before I vaporised its brain.
    La la la la-la la

    Then there came another and another
    And I think that was his brother
    And the other was his mother
    And we’re shooting every one.
    La la la la-la la
    Falling. And they are falling.
    And they keep calling for more to come.

    As my cat held back th’attacking horde,
    I left his pack and got on board
    The sitting rocket ship to do
    A little chippy switcheroo.
    Doo doo doo doo-doo doo

    In the nook that’s labeled MGC
    I took Chip 20 and could see
    It’s plenty frightening outside
    With Wally lightening our ride.
    Die die die die-die die
    Falling. And they are falling.
    And it’s appalling, the casualty.

    (Instrumental)

    Falling. And they are falling.
    And they keep calling for more to come.

    Then we leapt aboard the scout and fled
    The mad, marauding horde. I said
    To Wally: “Hold on tight”,
    And he said: “Holly, we’ll be quite alright.”
    La la la la-la la.

    Falling. Yes we are falling.
    And they keep calling for more to come.
    Falling. And they are falling.
    And they keep calling for more to come.
    Falling. And they are falling.
    And now they’re stalling, and we can run.

    I hope that all appreciate
    The cleverness that you can do,
    The punning layers you relate:
    “A little chippy switcheroo”!

    Sorry it took me an hour to post it. It’s daytime, here in Australia. I’m trying to write these songs in between patients!

    Tails.
    The Mutt’s legs remind me of rat tails.
    Wally’s is one big feather duster – maybe it adds to the drag to slow down the airscout’s fall.
    Holly’s is not to be seen.

    Holly’s NEVER to be seen. You honestly think Wally would have left her behind?

    Cats always land on their feet (well, mostly), luckily for Wally and Holly!
