Ah, Mouse. Age will catch up with us all eventually.
Angus is a Scottish Fold?
Are we going to be introduced to a young Queen Racoon?
“Retro CN” logo is delightful!
Trash Demons? How dare you? They are Recycling Demo . . . er, Raccoons, I mean. Raccoons who are recycling specialists. Yeah, just ask them (if you can get close enough).
Trash Pandas? Demons? I see Mouse already has a testy relationship with the Raccoons.
I love that adorable little “Swat” in the last panel—a one-fang one as well!
It’s less than two hours until my birthday. This whole story arc is like a birthday present! :D
Baba’s so sassy and I love it.
I wonder if someone could take Baba up to the Attic to see old friends?
Aw, so Mouse knew Angus! This makes me want an October reunion with the non-living residents of the Big Pink House even more. Please, Georgia?
…And as I think on who else may show up, I’m wondering if this is going to lead into Wicket’s introduction to the daily strip.
Love Angus’ tam.
P.S. I suppose I should start calling her Mouse instead of Baba. She’s not old yet!
Look! It’s the Big Pink House!
Retro CN, like it! Plus the new writing too.
Love seeing Angus as the "CN retro reporter emeritus. Being that he was an adult reporter in 1979, it is apparent he was quite the distinguished elder statesman in the early ’90s.
Baba Mouse is definitely in that transition mode between the ’80s with its fashion and the “Valley Girl” presence (BTW, pretty good coming of age movie with Nicholas Cage but about 10 years before Baba Mouse was on camera here) and the grunge era of the early to mid ’90s which was engulfing youth culture possibly with a bit of 90210 with her reporting attire. Geez, I miss those days!
Ancient Scottish Fold Angus Toe beans! Baba Mouse fang! Baba Mouse swat! Retro CN logo! So much to love!!!!
So this is the only cat in BCN who have whiskers?
Like, you look totally rad, Mouse! And, like, gag me with a spoon! Those trash demons are like so, totally un-righteous!
For whatever reason, I heard my grandpa’s voice when Angus was talking. Memories…
Is ‘Baba Mouse’ actually a cat? Or just an exceedingly large mouse?
Mousie-lassie looks ready to break this story wide open.
Aye, lass. It was a harsh time.
Speaking of Scotts, Marie has us watching Outlander on tv, to which our college student pointed out that it was nothing but soft-core porn for old people. Anyway, I have always liked the Scotts and have always wanted to visit Scotland. One of these days.
Ghost Angus looks more like ’79 Angus than ’90 Angus. Good to know the ghosts get their youth back.
This is not news. It’s history! :-)
Trash demons sounds so much cooler than trash pandas. Watch out starlord, baba’s coming for ya!
Scotland the Brave
Hark when the night is falling
Hear! hear the cats are calling,
Loudly and proudly calling,
Out on the lane,
There on the curb we’re seeing,
Trash demons who are being,
And so totally lame!…….
Angus is at the ready,
Mouse says hang on, hold steady,
Stay inside, stay comfy, I have this now,
Be sure I will endeavour,
To bring the news whenever,
We know that cats forever,
Stay brave and strong!
You know?! … This DOES look one of those verbal exchanges that would have taken place between Harry Reasoner and Barbara Walters !!! … (The timing of the tape would be close enough!!) … :)
What is she swatting?
“Retro CN”. Ah yes, impossible timelines
Having lived in the 90s, I don’t know if I’d call it a “cynical time” myself…especially with consideration of the level of cynicism of today…
Loving Mouse’s little fang and her loving swat at Angus.
OT: Early Mornings
And now, a conversation between Mrs. Malaprop and Lady Mondegreen
Mrs. Malaprop: Lady Mondegreeen, I understand you went star grazing last night.
Lady Mondegreen: Yes. I saw a plaid moon rising. There was a bathroom on the right.
Mrs. Malaprop: And I’ll bet you used a state of the cart telephone.
Lady Mondegreen: Yes. In the naked light I saw ten thousand people make a call!
Mrs. Malaprop: Did you hear the rumor about Lucy getting enraged?
Lady Mondegreen: Really? I thought I saw Lucy and this Guy with Diamonds!
Mrs. Malaprop: Will I see you too moral?
Lady Mondegreen: Sure will. I’m gonna sing a song on the patio, man!
Love the swat and the fang! You could tell that she’s a little stinker.
No, Bea, Baba Mouse understood the true nature of the vile racoons. You need to learn that they care nothing for the enviroment as they claim. They like to make themselves look innocent so you never see what their really doing until it’s too late.
“Swat” in the last panel. In the finest tradition of “His Girl Friday.” Side note, the unisex name of the main character made a remake of “The Front Page” easier.
Alas, Angus isn’t wearing the appropriate tartan. He should certainly be in Clan Chattan’s https://www.scotclans.com/scottish-clans/clan-chattan/chattan-tartan/ – the Clan of the Cat.
Baba Mouse is such a cool 90’s kitty cat.
Her attitude hasn’t changed in all these years.
I like where this is heading.
Won’t be posting or replying until next Tuesday afternoon. Can’ really type w. L. hand. Otherwise A-OK.
I like how Jules is smiling and watching the clip in panel 2. How old is the July bug? How did he know how to find the right video? Is he some sort of immortal or time traveller who was actually present 30 years ago and knew Angus and Mouse back then????,
Who doesn’t love archived footage?
OMG. Total Valley Girl vibes comin’ off Mouse! I love it!
I didn’t notice the “Retro CN” identifier upon first reading. Nice touch, Burt.♥
