But surely that’s some great-great-something-or-other!
GASP! Jules IS a highlander bug!! :O
Baba and Jules go back a long way!
So Mag, who do you think the July bug is spying for?
Check out the little HANDS! They screwed the lid on the jar. Wow!
Maybe the July Bug is a time traveler, only able to appear in July. His entire life is a succession of endless Julys. It’s always July for the July Bug. July has stopped looking like a real word now.
Now we know why he knew the date of the right footage.
He sleeps eleven months a year. It might explain how he’s lasted so long.
Dang, Jules is an immortal! So he has first hand knowledge of this event from 30 years ago. I wonder how Baba Mouse managed to get Jules his freedom? Was he working/collaborating with the possums in the “Raccoon/Opossum Conflict”? If Jules goes back to 1991, does he go even further back to the days of Winifred or even Tillie? Fascinating plot!
OMC, I did not see that coming!!!! Love Jules’ crossed legs on top of the speech bubble!
Come to think of it, Mag is an unusually long-lived racoon too. Could she have any parrot or turtle blood in her perhaps?
First time Jules is likeable (to me) since he came on the scene.
I love how Tommy and Bea look so excited, like they’ve just been waiting to ask Jules his age!
Immortal bugs? We’re doomed!
1991 Baba Mouse Adorable Toe Beans! [NBMATB, in case this momentous event reoccurs.]
Oh no!! Not Jules!
Maybe he has an every-month-but-July based stone-sleep like from Gargoyles!
At least we know he escaped.
Maybe a divergent Cicada?
…they live longer than 17 years (since they are dormant that long) and Termite queens live over 50 years.
BUT, I think in this little Clone Wars (Raccoon Opposum Wars) that this is the Master Jedi, Yoda.
Princess Baba will need his help, along with Obi Wan (the camerman) in order to escape the clutches of the evil empire. First they must manage to retrieve her microphone, that contains all the information fit to report, including the battle plans of the Raccoon empire.
Say, when and how did Puck get outta the house and into the barn?
Jules, annoying since at least 1991…
The Moody Blues: Your Wildest Dreams
Once upon a time
Jules was flying high
Flying through the sky
Then we learn he was a spy
I wonder for how long
I wonder if Baba Mouse remembers
How long ago it was
In your wildest dreams!
Orb friends always knew
Jules was too strange to be true
We wondered as well
His secrets that he’ll never tell
I wonder who he is
I wonder just how long he’s been here
In our wildest dreams!
And when the movie plays
And when Jules reveals the story
When the movie plays,
We see the years of hope and glory,
Once upon a time!
He still is having fun,
And will do so for years to come
I wonder if we’ll know
Ever know all of his story,
In our Wildest Dreams!
Someone has the picture of Dorian Grey stashed away.
jaw hits the floor
Meanwhile, Back on the Nile
Trevor-Hotep: Paser-Jules, long time no see.
Paser-Jules: Yes. It’s been a while since I visited the Cosmo Nursery.
Trevor-Hotep: And how’s everyone in Egypt and Afar?
Paser-Jules: Just fine. I was hoping you’d let me pick some flowers for my lady bug, June?
Trevor-Hotep: Sure. Help yourself. Just be careful with the space time…
Paser-Jules: How do you drive these things?
I’m guessing the scarf and goggles are family heirlooms but we’ll never know. Since June, all July bugs look the same to me.
A reminder that the cats are in the laundry room watching this. They are not there.
Pucky white floof!
Well, definitely older than most june bugs.
Anyone notice Jules is sitting on his speech balloon in the last panel?
Jules speaks!?!? is this the first time we’ve heard him speak??
OT: vacation pix
Jules banging on the jar with four tiny fists! LOL
There definitely needs to be a DUNN DUNN DUNN!! after panel three.
THANK YOU GEORGIA for an arc about Jules! Of all your side characters, he is my favorite.
Of course she never said taking war prisoners. She took Jules prisoner as an excuse to cross the DMZ.
He’s older than dirt.
I wonder if we are ever going to meet any of the opossums?
Beatrice and Tommy’s faces… ADORABLE
Oh my Cat, it’s Jules! Awesome!
Love the little fists hitting the jar!
Ooooh that’s how he knew the secret code to find the footage!
Oh my cat…
I think this may be the answer to the true nature of the July Bug: https://www.gocomics.com/breaking-cat-news/2020/07/23
OH MY FLUFFING CAT!!!!
