    Please, somebody go dig up Dave Graue or V.T. Hamlin, it’s all I can do to read this strip anymore! No imagination, no continuity with the characters like it should!

    PLEASE, somebody tell the Benders—go back and actually READ some of Hamlin or Graue’s stories, get back to the REAL Alley Oop adventures, not some sloppy soap opera like the “Guiding LIght of Moo” or “All My Children of Moo”. Get back to some wars between the tribes, dinosaur wars—bring back the MOON MEN or the Martians to Moo! Jeez, at this rate Alley Oop and Oola will be still arguing while half of their readers will have had funerals.

    Asking OWEbama for opinion would be like asking Fidel Castro what the U.S. Constitution is about!

    Folks, there are MILLIONS of Americans who’ve never had the opportunity to read original V.T. Hamlin strips of Alley Oop or those of his handpicked successor Dave Graue. It’s a shame we have to depend on the Bender strip, when the folks behind the Oop strip could reprint those old Oop strips that started in the 30’s and have NEVER been seen by current readers of the strips. Far more interesting and exciting—those old Oop strips had far more imagination, action, and scripts involved. BRING BACK THE HAMLIN/GRAUE STRIPS, RE-INVENT ALLEY OOP WITH THE REAL ALLEY OOP.

    I can say for absolute certainty that there were NO Arabs in Oops days, not in VT Hamlin’s Oop series or that of Dave Graue’s Alley Oop. The only advanced society ever to play a part in Moo was the Moonmen who landed and captured most of the Moovians before Oop came to the rescue during Hamlin/Graue’s strips in ’61 and the a couple of “Martians” who arrived in Moo to arrange the release of the last two surviving Moonmen trapped in a damaged spaceship. Mostly it was enemy Cavemen from surrounding lands like Lem or the Cardiff giant.

    What I can’t figure out, if this is MOO and BC, where the heck did they find Arabs in that time period? I could believe the Neanderthals and maybe a Cro-Magnon or two but a blade slinging oil sheik back in Oop’s Moo? Don’t follow the thinking or what the reasoning is for the different cultures from two far off ages existing at the same time in an age of dinosaurs. They didn’t have camels in Oop’s time zone.

    Don’t get it, Alley used to wade into King Tunk’s kingdom of Lem and wail the “tar” out of Lemians, fight dino’s with his trusty axe, jump right into fights with antagonistic enemies in his numerous adventures into different centuries, fight Moonmen, pirates, outlaws, etc over the years in the Hamlin/Graue comic strips and here he is HIDING in cave from a guy he could whip while eating a dino burger. I sure hope this strip heads somewhere soon.

    Boy, I can’t believe I’ve stayed around this long reading this strip, Benders aren’t doing Vincent Trout Hamlin and Dave Graue justice with this slow plodding story. I’ve got 10 YEARS of Hamlin comic strips from ‘42 to ’49, from 50’s to 1960 to read. If you compare the original strip and character/storylines to this current strip—then you get some REAL IDEA of how bad Alley Oop strip is now.

    Ain’t this the same strip two days in a row? C’mon, let’s get the story moving along here, it’ll be Christmas before Oop figures out which is Oola.

    Geez, Rodney Dangerfield would be saying “no respect, just no respect”. King Guz doesn’t have much respect or impact on Moovians.
