wizer: this is working exactly as i planned! you belong to me!
wizer: now, my friend, there's no end to what you and i can achieve once i have you trained!
Guess the plot’s thickening even further . . .
Alley had better figure out what Wizer’s REALLY up to . . .
Oh, well Hugopouncies to all Oopsters out there!
This is going to be a long slog, since Wizer said he was going to hypnotize all the dinosaurs in Moo to attack the Moovians. Just now getting started on the first one. Hard to see how he trains them to attack everyone but him.
I’ve found something extremely interesting. Remember the discussion we had about Alley Oop being ignorant about rubber balls? Then he invented the Alley Oop shot while playing Pitz in 6th century Mesoamerica? Well, check this out. In the Sunday strip of March 10, 2002, Alley and his friends discover a rubber ball that grows on trees. On March 24 they invented the game of basketball. Then, on March 31, Alley invents the “Alley Oop” shot! No kidding! Check it out if you don’t believe me. Carole has gotten so senile, she can’t even remember her own stories! I repeat what I’ve said many times. It is time for the Benders to retire!
Months of dino training.
Okay, my apologies! I just discovered that GoComics has removed the Sunday strips from that era, so you can’t check out my claim about the March, 2002 Sunday strips. I don’t know where I got them either, but they’re on my hard drive. I checked with IloveComicsArchive.com and their Alley Oop strips stop at 1999. Darn.
Teresa: that’s a bit scary to have a cut off at 1940.. the next 5 years after that were really important to the contemporary world political structure. A huge change took place within hours on Dec 7, 1941 that made a difference here in Canada and particularly in Europe, as it got the US involved completely in the global conflict. The casualty level in US forces in the Pacific is notable on its own, higher I believe than the Allied forces in the European and African conflict areas. Blocking out WWII seems like a strange and important time to pick for cut off.
And he puts his hand in the dino’s mouth because???
Hey guys, anyone else read 9 Chickweed Lane today?
Remember the guy at the circus that used to put his right arm in the lions mouth?Oh, Come on – surely you remember Lefty?
Seems like an awful lot of trouble to go to simply to take revenge for an imagined sleight. A pointless and trumped up tale. So much potential, so little imagination. And all the unfinished tales that drift off to oblivion. Sad.
UncaScrooge…thank you for the info…
You’re welcome. Jack was born in 1931 so is now 81. Carole is about 20 years younger but I can’t put my hands on the exact number. They were married 4/22/95, according to her facebook page.
Rex too groggy to start wagging his tail and rolling over. And if he does? Well, there goes the scare tactics..
Wild animals just won’t tolerate the amount of handling a domestic will. They have to be drugged, but not for long periods. Their bodies get too much stress..?Dinny is wild isn’t he?
Interesting, Night. I’m curious to see where this is going.
