Wouldn't The Late, Late, Late, Late Show really be The Early Show?

I am happy. Why? Because today's strip marks the return of Fignewt, my favorite of Scaduto's names. Woo hoo! Although at the same time, I'm annoyed at the return of the use of cobwebs to signify that someone hasn't moved in a long time. Of course, the question is, why is Fignewt up to see Leadbutt watching The Late, Late, Late, Late Show? Shouldn't he have gone to bed ages ago?

So anyway, we have a case of "Do as I say, not as a I do," but really, Fignewt should do his homework, not watch television. And that's the beauty of being an adult--you can stay up until all hours watching television! Whee!

Al does get kisses, though, for the "blows his toupee" comment.

The kid is wearing 19th century pajamas, so clearly he got up in the middle of the night to get some water or something.

Of course. I should've realized that he'd be in pajamas, if only just because he's not in the same clothes as the top panel.

Scaduto's Dec. 4 cartoon proves that he's lost his mind completely; either that, or he's testing the syndication to see if anything, no matter how inane and crappy, will be printed. Come to think of it, that MUST be it!

Yup, Dec 4 is unbelievable.
Ignoring the whole 'we all played cowboys' bit, are they watching
a film from one of those old blacn n whitle projector movie things?
Did some reader really send in this exact idea, or is some snarker seeing
how Scaduto follows what's said?
Hm, too look on it lightly, times have changed since then.
Couldn't carry any thing that looks like a gun these days.
My neighbour called the police
on some other kids because they had realistic-looking pistols that were water guns.
