    Unlikely, as movie cartoon shorts basically died when the matinee format that supported them ended in the 1950s. From 1960s on TV was the game in town and if you were aiming for the syndicated market you had to get at least 65 episodes in the can; this is why Robotech is actually made up of three different anime…it was the only way to get the 65 episode minimum.

    By Hustler Magazine v. Falwell in 1988 I don’t see how there is any worry about a lawsuit as 1) Dick Tracy is a public figure and 2) the strip is a parody and therefore not Defamation.

    It could be a stylistic choice. The real life webcomic Hunter Black has a somewhat similar style as what we are seeing with Alldid.

    Nice little homage to Dick Tracy vs Cueball with the Filthy Flora reference. How many of you spotted it?

    While I also agree I should point out that Mike DID write stories with an actual ending: The Fifth and Flyface story as well as the Mr. Crime storyline and even the Jumbler storyline. It was with the Moon Maid storyline that we started to get major stories with effective non endings

    Well its ignition was waterproof when we first saw it.

    Sure they could escape. We have BB Eyes using an Aqualung to escape from an apparent water demise so why not these two? Or if the writers are in for an anime crossover the car could like the Mach 5 (1966) be able to be driven under water.

    I was surprised that they were able to find more Doctor Who at this late date but the find gives some hope because they where in a place that they were not supposed to be.

    Actually, thanks to fans of Doctor Who all the lost episodes exist in audio format.

    Remember that this was part of a series that ended some 60 years ago and that Silver only showed a short clip.

    Also Captain Video is nearly a lost series; of the six year run only 24 of its episodes survive and of those only 5 have been available to the general public (the rest are in the UCLA Film and Television Archive and have to be viewed there)

    Finally by all accounts Captain Video had an insanely low budget using old cowboy movies to pad out 7 minutes of the show’s 24 minute running time until 1953 when the show shifted to a 15 minute running time.

    So Vitamin would only have his own memories as a guide regarding what his performance was like.
