What an odd jail
Tough to come up with a decent haiku for the week when nothing happens.
G. M. O. T.!
Oop and company.
Imprisioned in Time Jail.
An uncertain fate.
Guess we’ll find out more on Monday.
“So, this is Time Prison?”
“What are we in for?”
I told ya, folks. They’re in for their time crimes. And don’t ask me how do they have any incriminating evidence for the same, for it’s called…..
“We’ve been trying to bring you in for the past 80 years but you somehow have kept one jump ahead of us”.
Alternate Alley Oop Chapter 23 “Alley Oop Space Rebel” (91) 11/16/2019 Saturday
Facing them is a humanoid with visor on its otherwise featureless face. It resembles Gort from Day the Earth Stood Still"(1951) looking menacing. In the movie a terrible energy beam would emanate from it.
“HALT!” it said.
Violet has her blaster out and the hovering Quoppina, Bobbins has his. Bex is holding the sensor posts looking with its three black eyes and big green horse ears forward toward it, the mechanical man.
“It is a synthetic contrivance” Said the deep clicking punctuated voice of Bex.
“Yeah dang overgrown rutabaga, that’s a service droid on monitor duty!” Bobbins says to the hulking shaggy green behemoth.
“Identify yourselves.” was its next utterance at them.
“Violet, Bobbins and Bex at your service.” She said as nicely as possible. She holsters her blaster very carefully.
They can see it is getting information from the owner.The red light in its visor/eye shifts to a blue warning.
_"The 7 ft machine turns and tells them to, “Follow me.” All that is missing is a butler’s uniform.
“I think I know who this is…” Violet says.
A bit further away the thing is watching and listening, attempting to keep pace and not activate those devices being spread out.

“THE THEM AFFAIR”
Using a device in the UNCLE car they find out that Helen’s I.D. is real and passes the scanning tests.
“So, you are following the ants?” Asks Alley Oop.
“Not at the time, there were two men from Bexelon Corp. shadowing the 3 police officers right to where that fire fight by the National Police is on going.”
“Bexelon?” Illya asked.
“Yes, that orange van and the two men in orange jumpsuits with that company name tipped me off.” She said laconically. Illya and Alley smiled at that.
“Hey, what about those giant ants?” She asks with excitement.
“Won’t you come with us? We need to debrief you.” Illya said, a smile on his young Nordic face.

Alley should be worried about the placement of the guard’s left hand … lol ;-)
Oh wait, there is glass between them, I have an over active imagination.
The number of followers keeps rising — even though (or, perhaps because) two U2 buffoons somehow manage to post here regularly. Maybe, someone gave them inter-dimensional communicators. Keep posting buffoons, a new milestone is approaching (23,000 followers).
Well, at least we know that the guard is in fact on the outside of the glass container.
Hubby, moi, and No ! triplet are sending this road trip momento. Moi is dancing with the blonde hair.
Hey ho and off we go to Wally World!
I don’t know about y’all but I subscribe to this one for the comments as the strip is pure junk; keeping in touch with friends -priceless.
Alley Oop – 20 years ago today.
The guard should know by now that Laser Tag is so behind the times.
I wonder why the guard’s one hand suddenly got so much bigger.
Morning everyone! Today’s classic link is:
Hey things might be looking up. Here’s my guess on the outcome: Everyone is found guilty of time crimes, Alley and the notorious Time Bandits Gang are sentenced to eternity in time prison, the Alley Oop comic strip comes to an end finally putting it out of its misery and replace it with Alley Oop classics by V. T. Hamlin. Sounds like a winner to me.
Who doesn’t like that?
So who evolved and made you Boss?
Writing…. two panels that somewhat advance the “plot” and a throw-away “joke” akin to the “mix tape” variety.
Given the guard’s uniform and weapon, they are imprisoned in a future time stream…I find this entertaining and interesting
Oop looks like he is getting pretty mad. In this new Lemsay version, it probably means the guard is about to get slapped.
You are in for about 2 million years as that’s the length of the time line your shenanigans fouled up.
We get an ongoing story as with the Benders, but the new writers advance the story with a gag a day (groan!).
