In Color! What th’…?
P2: Nope…who am I, his coach? Even after Kaz gives him a stern look.
P2: And I’m not letting him see me looking at him out of the corner of my eye. Stays off the team for 3 years…this what he gets!!!
Brought to you now, IN LIVING COLOR!
With a 4-1 lead midgame in pitchers weather, play for the DP and concede the lead runner, probably (but not necessarily) on third. Can catcher Wilson “O” Henry figure it out? If the lead man’s on third, will Nottingham counter by putting their runner on first in motion? Hit behind the runner? Delayed double steal? Or more likely, taking a couple to wait for Zane’s groove that can be launched towards South America? Meanwhile, I’m celebrating 1960 Technicolor!
From the MoonMan “This is Awesome, is this color a one time thing, guess we will have to wait and see tomorrow!”
P3 He can see through his hair!!
P2 chat with him, shoot, Gil’s turned his back on Zane(y) and isn’t even paying attention to the game
P3 coach isn’t coming out, my catcher isn’t coming out, reda$$ Abel Burrito is haranguing me from the stands that there is an open base, my hair is in my eyes, I can’t see the plate, much less the strike zone, I remember why I didn’t play ball for three years
I almost always like black and white better for daily comics. But with this one, the color may help keep the revolving cast of characters straight.
In all reality , who left their crayons out, nice coloring Mop, you stayed between the lines ,now go home and get your shine box !
P1, GoComics finally steps into the 1960s.
P2, Nope, I’m outta here. If we lose, this one’s on you.
P3, Yet another star Milford player whose hair changed color from one strip to the next. Continuity be damned!
I’ll just leave this here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pit20Gotp-g
In the 4/15/21 submission of this Milford Masterpiece Theatre, Kaz was telling GilPa to fire one up since it was 45 degrees and cloudy. Zagnut should get shelled, not wearing sleeves.
Aaaaaaaughhh! Too much change! It’s the end of Western civilization! Nooooo!
“I’m very pointedly not looking at him! Because I’m not watching the game. Four innings of this nonsense is more than enough. See you tomorrow!”
Big help Gil. Do you use the same technique on Mimi?
Gil is very pointedly not looking at us, either. He knows he can’t face us, and he knows Sport should still be on the bench. Gil will next resort to the voodoo hex moves Red Schoendienst used in the dugout.
MY EYES…!!!! The technicolor…..!!!
What is this? Rec league in-house rules where you can’t use your best pitcher for more than four innings and requires you to shuffle in replacement pitchers who could stand on the beach and not be able to hit the ocean with a rock?
Black and White Held Hostage: Day 1.Though Zane is grey in P2. I guess that makes him Zane Grey.
Yet another example that R&W read Mopped Up.
Nice sideburns Kaz!!
Do High Schools have 2 coaches for baseball?
Anyone else remember watching this is glorious black and white?
I sought the opinion of a local dog on today’s strip, they detected no change from last week.
P 2.5: “…so, nothing from the usual then?…”
The sun must have come out.
You can bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow there’ll be sun.
Great to see Gil join (finally) the technicolor world!
Is this like the movie about Pleasantville? Everything is in color now because evryone had sex last night?
Hey sport, I figured it out. You suck.
I don’t think we’re in Milford anymore, Toto
Is this how the Gil Thorp strip ends, with him taking a foul ball off the back of his head while very pointedly not watching the game action?
Just wait until Able Burrito learns that his tax money has been spent to purchase red dye for the Mudlarks’ uniforms.
Hey gang! I get it. The color is because we have a new sponsor. Gil is about to tell us that whenever Zane get’s into a jam,… it’s a Smucker’s Jam!
Let’s go, Zane Gatsby! old sport…
Wow! Gil finally splurged on the EnChroma glasses and discovers he’s a blue-haired old man.
R&W are still royally PO’d with Mopman for the great fire three weeks ago and along with dull, dingy floors since that time, they are now making a feeble attempt to marginalize MUT by tricking us unsuspecting readers….errrr…snarkers into thinking we are really reading MUT rather than their daily drivel by using color as a distraction
Yeah, Zane gets into trouble, but magically escapes by getting a double play and a routine flyout or a strikeout. You can bank on that happening tomorrow. Gil’s stupid managerial style naturally will work.
And speaking of styles, what’s really in style is Mopped Up Thorp – https://moppedupthorp.wordpress.com/
Gil Thorpe…in color? Is this a real thing now? BOOM!!!!
