    As of 2021, know of anyone who has a VCR? No, not DVD nor Blu-ray.

    Three anachronisms: rotary dial phone, a VCR and a video store. Heh, I remember reading this strip when it was first published.

    90s, me and my brother were home by ourselves while our parents were out. I was 8, he was 12. Watching tv and saw an ad for Sports Illustrated. The best part was if you call and order a subscription in the next 10 minutes, they’ll throw in this cool looking basketball AND the Swimsuit Issue, at no additional cost! I wanted the basketball, and my brother wanted, well… Anyway his strategy was to keep the free stuff and return the subscription issues back to the post office, that way we wouldn’t have to pay for them. Genius plan.

    We got all the stuff two weeks later. Dad kept the subscription, but mom trashed the Swimsuit Issue and gave the ball to a kid in the neighborhood. To this day I wonder why it was so easy for my brother to order over over the phone like that. Did whoever was taking his info care that they were speaking to a child?

    This is a horrible idea. You don’t leave a 6 year old child alone for 2 hours. Terrible parenting.

    So, they’re leaving him at home unsupervised?!? Doesn’t that qualify this strip for classification as Sci-Fi?

    Reminds me of a movie from 1989 called “Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death”, about a tribe of man eating women living in the Amazon. Starred Shannon Tweed and Adrienne Barbeau, and featured Bill Maher as their intended victim. This was back when Bill was just a struggling actor/comedian before going political.

    Calvin’s parents must be psychotic or insanely selfish to put a night out over the safety of their son (and the rest of the neighborhood).

    An anagram of “Attack of the Coed Cannibals” is “’Sonofab*tch! Attacked clean.”

    Ahhh, the days when VCRs were still fairly new and expensive, but you could rent one from a video store! Hopefully Videorama has a delivery guy to bring the VCR and tapes to the house; no way would Calvin try to walk all the way to the store to lug them home!

    If you’re real lucky, they’ll have “Cannibal Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death”.

    Yes, that’s a real movie starring Adrienne Barbeau and Bill Maher (yes, that Bill Maher). Someday, I’ll have to watch it.

    FWIW, in Fairfax County, VA children over the age of 10 can be left unsupervised for up to three hours during daylight and early evening hours.

    What Calvin may be missing, is that there may not be any RCA plugs at the back of the TV, and if the aerial is connected by 300 Ω pair, then he’s sunk.

    Calvin is six. That is too young to be left alone, even in 1991.

    So….how is he going to pay for this, much less actually get the movie to his house? I never heard of a movie delivery service.

    They will get in enough trouble realistically, without the bs of theoretically renting an undeliverable movie.

    If Calvin hates girls so much then why is he always trying to see movies that feature scantily clad females?
