    For those who like Sayers are unfamiliar with the back story, Doc only traveled a handful of times in the 85+ years of the strip. When he built the time-machine, Doc was already bald. He and his assistant, Jon, sent a camera back in time to get record events in the past. He accidentally left the time-machine on and transported Oop and Ooola to the 20th century. It would be quite a while before Doc took his first time-travel trip.

    Okay so Rocky and Ricky Raccoon built a time-machine way back in the 80’s. Let Joey and Jony have the two raccoons and make a go with a strip about time-traveling raccoons which can be as goofy as all get out. Then hire a creative team that can maybe Alley Oop an interesting strip again. Everyone wins.

    This fake “baldness” side effect never affected anyone else since it was invented. Just another lame attempt to shoehorn in a "gag ".

    Fortunately, it won’t affect the Neanderthal genome.

    Does the new and improved Time travel device run on Doritos?

    So you’re saying it’s retroactive?

    Wrong, Doc! You’ve been bald since the original version of this strip began!

    Harrumph!!!!! What, pray-tell is wrong with being bald?!?!? :)

    * * * * Although I am interested in the time-machine aspect of the story, and I think it has some really great promise as a plot device here….. is anyone able to provide a basic synopsis of how time travel has been used as a plot device in the past in this comic? It may help me gain perspective on how this progresses.

    Me thinks this is pretty interesting…Alley’s adventures with time-traveling racoons? I’m getting a Guardian of the Galaxy vibe here.
