Hey kids, Don’t try this at home! It seems that Bunz & Katz have taken a short trip back to their old Scout Craft in the Impound Lot… a bit shorter trip than they had intended perhaps…
Oh deary me… Can this be the end for Little Bunz?
Seems that at least one device on the Scout Craft was still functional, despite her doubts… and now the last vestige of Advanced Space Alien technology on Dirt is gone… unless you count all them Flying Saucers tucked away in Area 51… But those are all cheap crummy Gray tech, about the alien equivalent of a Nash Metropolitan… But more to the point, what now for this epic of sci-fi sociopolitical satire? Is this The End for our Dingbat Duo? Are we fated to return to endless iterations of the Wacky Kangaroo Show?
Dang. Looks like the scuttling charge blew Bunz right out of her glad rags. “Quick Rob…er, uh, Katz! to the bat-Goodwill-Box!” Might have a hard time finding something with quite that degree of slutty, street-skank written all over it but you never know till you try. White kid gloves might be a bit of a challenge though.
However it would seem that our protagonists quest to find a vehicle to get them off “dirt” has come to an ignominious end. They’re well and truly stuck with us now! HA! Shouldn’t be a problem – judging by prior performance they ought to fit right in.
Did’ja ever wonder, WHAT is this compulsion for villains to always build self destruct systems into their secret labs an’ stuff? I mean WHY??? Who in their right mind does that??
It’s usually a convenient hook upon which hang a plot devise.
Well that is restating the Obvious! My point was that it’s a hack plot device that provides the writer an easy ending for a story – But it’s a stupid thing for a character to do! Was it Victor Frankenstein who was the first to rig his tower for self destruction, or I wonder, did the plot device show up in earlier scripts or stories?
Nemo scuttled the Nautilus and also blew up his home base island of Vulcania in Disney’s version of Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea. Not sure if that qualifies as we can never tell if he just set his reactor to blow or if he had it rigged that way already. Why? Because he didn’t want his secrets falling into the hands of a world that he felt was not ready for them. Not really the act of a madman after all.
Well, Universal’s Frankenstein of 1931 predates the Dizney movie (1954) by some decades… I don’t recall that much about the “Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea” movie (other than the rubber octopus) but in the book (1869) Nemo doesn’t seem the most stable of characters – while in Jules Verne’s original version, the fate of Nemo and the Nautilus remain a mystery… Though we learn later in Verne’s “The Mysterious Island” (1874) their final fate – an’ nope, they didn’t blow up…
To be fair, in Mary Shelley’s original Frankenstein, the tower isn’t blown up either… And actually, now that I think about it, that didn’t happen until the sequel movie, “The Bride of Frankenstein in 1935…
But back to Nemo, considering humanity’s track record – keeping advanced weaponry out of our hands would seem prudent… As an interesting correlation, in “The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes” (1970) Queen Victoria is scandalized by the idea of the British navy using a submarine to attack secretly without showing the colors… It just isn’t British, y’know… (though whether the real Victoria might have felt that way, I couldn’t say… She could be fairly ruthless in expanding the empire)…
Actually, Bunz’s latest outfit came from Phil’s “Big Box o’ Cinema Scanties,” offered as an incentive to sweeten the deal in their purchase of the Plywood Saucer… Said outfit being the same one worn by the star in “Gidget Goes Pro,” mercifully the last in the series…
Eeeeee! Bunz’ leopard spotted pedal pushers, gone! Burnt to ashes! They were the best part of this strip!
Awww… But they gave their spotz for comedy – What higher calling could a pair of slutty pedal pushers aspire too? Hmmm… perhaps to wrap around the thighs of some character with a smexier figure?
Oh well, too late for that now…
Sirrah, I beg to differ! There is more to making a female cute than just T&A! There’s intelligence, charm. personality, pedal pushers – And then there’s, and then there’s, and then there’s – Okay, so mostly it’s the T&A.
Well the blast did set the canvas for Bunz to get a new set of duds – to (um) cover her modesty. But a point to think on: would an alien invader grown in a vat (loaded with world destructive intent) have all that much modesty to worry about? Remember the Jane Fonda movie about another heroine-sort pressed to service as a space warrior — geared up to save everyone — as she stood before her president and got her orders for service? At the moment both are sans cloths with an impossible challenge presented before them.
And the greenish looking Katz with the square-looking eyes reminds me vaguely of the killer robot in Disney’s “Black-hole”. The turning inside out field that allowed going through the Black-hole was plenty scary. But mainly I remember the robot with an attitude. When you fold up your entire reality to go through the Black-hole, do you really remain you on the other side. The question is raised: when information goes into a Black-hole, is it somehow preserved?
Ah yes, I believe that I do somewhat fondly recall Ms. Fondue… Perhaps take another look at that Owner’s Manual, er… the Hollywood mag that Bunz is reading back on page 175…
Bill, Bunz’s Modesty is to be expected… after all, she was transmogrified with Japanese anime girls as a model, and… aside from the momentary flashes of silhouetted nudity as “magical girls” transform into their crimefighting modes… they are notoriously modest.
And THAT has to work… -(
Even the Self-Destruct was defective. Notice the count-down: 5,4,BANG! What happened to 3,2,1?
SURPRISE!!! (It’s even funnier when it happens with a hand grenade.) I guess the Negafleet recons that if you purposely destroy fleet property you deserve to go with.
