    Alberto VO5 is available from Amazon, Drugstore.com and Walmart.com, among others.

    You can still buy Alberto Balsam products online from Amazon, apparently.

    I wonder if Bronson Canyon is related to Steve Canyon.

    They are, but you’d never get Steve to admit it, seeing as how Bronson is a bank robber.

    Tracy looks like Fred MacMurray over on Funky.

    Joe does a much better job of drawing Tom’s characters than Tom does of drawing Joe’s.

    Some time back I saw, possibly on a Sunday or at the site, where we got a list of all Doonesbury characters past to present with ones who had “left” the strip. I think Lacey Davenport was one such “missing person”.

    Yep, Lacey’s been departed for awhile now.

    Thanks for passing along the FAQ, Neil! I enjoyed reading that. Some of those characters had long been erased from my memory bank.

    jhar already said: “That’s Funky Winkerbean & Les Moore on the screens in the 1st panel.” I guess those are two characters from the Funky Winkerbean strip. I’m not sure about that, because I haven’t really read it.

    Yep, two of the originals. My newspaper stopped running “Funky Winkerbean” when Funky and his cohorts were still high school students, so I haven’t seen it since then. Yeesh! Funky and Les have definitely not aged well!

    Is B.O. running with or from Little Attitude? I’m guessing Gertie thinks “with”, but B.O.’s expression in the last panel suggests “from.”

    It’s a surprise if Gertie’s concoction tastes anything like turnips.

    Guessing that li’l Attitude takes after his paw.

    Every chance he gets.
