Camren Bicondova hasn’t played Catwoman any more than David Mazouz has played Batman. She’s a pre-Catwoman Selina Kyle and he’s a pre-Batman Bruce Wayne.
That said, they both do a great job playing their respective characters.

Yes, I know that. The only place I used “it’s” that I can see is when I wrote, “It’s kind of one of those …” in which case I used it correctly, i.e. “It is kind of like …” Was there one I missed?
When I said, “site” I should have said “cite” because I didn’t necessarily mean a website. I can see using an apostrophe on a short, vowel-ending word that doesn’t read well like “no” or “do” because “nos” and “dos” just don’t read well. A word like bras wouldn’t be confusing though. It’s kind of one of those “how short is ‘short’” questions.
Anyway, apostrophes aside, I love the strip!
I’ve never come across that rule ever. I’ve always seen rules saying that an apostrophe to denote a plural is absolutely always wrong, with the possible exception of numbers (e.g. 1970s vs 1970’s). Can you provide me with a site for this rule you mention? I’m not trying to start a fight or anything; I genuinely want to know.

Frank Nelson was indeed on Lucille Ball shows. In fact, in the last year of “I Love Lucy” the Ricardos moved to Connecticut and Frank Nelson and Mary Jane Croft (who would later replace Vivian Vance on “The Lucy Show”) were their next-door neighbours.
Frank Nelson first came to fame as the rude salesman on the Jack Benny Show, first on radio and then on TV. He did McDonald’s commercials for a time, not as the rude persona but as the man who said, “Yeeeeees”. He also voiced characters based on his salesman character on “The Flintstones” many times. The drawings even resembled him.

He’s holding the uke backwards. Is he left-handed?

Man on the moon happened more than once, though. Oh, and by the way, it’s “souvenir”, unless of course Agnes is just mispronouncing it.
I love these schemes that Agnes comes up with. She’s absolutely brilliant.

I believe the reference is to Orson Welles who was most famous for writing, directing, producing and starring in “Citizen Kane”. Well, that, and one of the most famous radio broadcasts of all time: “War of the Worlds” on Oct 30, 1938.
