Travelers from the future.
By unknown dancing.
As haikus go, it was the best I could come up with.
Until Monday, ‘cause tomorrow’s Li’l Oop!
Convinced him of what? That the local looney bin is short three inmates?
Well, on the bright side, Hobbes profile looks better today.
Nothing Evolves Like Dance …
So Oop and Ooola both know about the macarena?
Every time I think it can’t get any dumber, it does. That takes unique talent. Not good talent but unique talent.
You should have started with the Electric Slide, Doc. The Macarena didn’t become a thing until the Electric Slide was halfway out the door!
Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 23 “Alley Oop Space Rebel” (555) 3/23/2019 Saturday
While the blaster fight is going on with the remainder of the group after the closing of the blast doors blocked their way out, Alley and Bex are approaching the fusion reactor to shut it down. And if worse comes-to-worse he will blow a hole in its casing.
Bex sees before Alley does the line of Imperial blue as the defenders are there anticipating the terrorist action.
Now Bex has slowed his-her progress as a solid line of stormtroopers bar their path. “How are you on taking blaster bolts?” Alley asks his shaggy emerald colored hexapod he is riding.
_"The creature thinks for a moment or two then tells Alley, “depending on the power setting, between 10 minutes and 3.”
“Really., that precise?” Alley asks a bit skeptical of those exact figures given.
“I could have given you more information but I sensed you wanted it short and sugary.” Bex replied now at a full stop some hundred yards away.
“Sweet. short and sweet is the idiom, Bex.”
“But no matter, how are you on the schematics of the reactor?”
“Cybernetic modules were grafted and inserted into my 6-lobed brain so that I could access any information outlets including here. I broke the fire walls by using access codes from the personnel here by hacking them instead to do so….yes I have it.” Bex replied.
“You are learning very quickly, Bex, I am impressed. Now we need to blow the part that will shut down this fusion plant.” Alley said ready to blow this place in both expressions of the meanings.
Bex tells him that, “I stopped at the outer range for those blasters.”

3/23/2019 “Oli Oli Oxenfree” (2019)
While Beezlebub contemplates the near future, her husband, Henri is awake with a big case of bed hair. “Good moaning Beezie, how did you sleep?” He asked in a drone, still not quite awake yet.
“Why my dear, I am hot on the trail of old information.” She smiled showing her fangs. Such beautiful fangs, he mused.
The Seventh Voyage: The Land of the Cyclopes (801 A.D.)
Parker’s flight over this Arabian desert was easier than he expected since the thermal updrafts are constant during the boiling days and milder at night. He can sleep while flying like a kind of autopilot allows for it.
Historian Dr Cox & with Doc Wonmug in the present.
Hobbes is as smart as I thought, then.
Maybe GC can talk the Tracy team to do at least a guess story arc?
I’m not sure it went like that, but please don’t remind me: I’m trying to forget THAT one!
Well, some of us are from the future.
I don’t suppose Doc has an Apple iPhone in his pocket. As I recall, Doc had some present-day equipment along in the Bender’s “Frankenstein” time-traveling story (back to 1816).
gets worse all the time
Worst one yet: 22,900.
For the years that I’ve been following Alley Oop in GC, I’ve been reading comments about how the strip isn’t as good as it once was. Is there, in fact, a “Golden Age” of Alley Oop that people have in mind when they are making these comments? Just curious.
This strip is just plain dumb anymore. It used to be enjoyable. I will be crossing it off my list.
From future and past. It should be obvious Oop is different, a caveman. Oop and Oola must have been in the future for many years to know all the history and fads? So this is how it will be. Sigh!
Today’s strip just blew up the dumb-o-meter that GO Comics uses to track the lameness of its strips. Technicians have been called and they hope to have a fix by Monday’s episode.
I have never seen Doc Wonmug appear so lame and stupid. He is supposed to be the brains of the bunch.After all he was named after Albert Einstein ( for those who don’t know : ein is for one and stein for a drinking mug) V.T. would be steamed if he knew what has become of his strip. Hey Benders, care to comment on this mess? Maybe even consider coming out of retirement?
I must point out ONE (1) Glaring Consistency!!
In just about every strip since Alley broke the wall, there has been a portion of wall in one of the backgrounds that still has the piece of broken wall in it.
I still dislike the colors.
It might be the Macarena or it might be an epileptic seizure. It’s hard to tell sometime.
Looks like Oop needs to start working on his gut.
They do a dance that they say is from the future that Hobbes has never seen and that convinces him? How gullible is he?
One of them is from the future. Two of them are from the past.
Hearts still outnumbering ’hecklers 3 to 1.
In the Macarena the feet don’t move.
