Two KFP updates in one week!! A shocking surprise! I think I had more fun drawing the Atomic Monster on the TV than I've had doing anything else in this comic - Maybe I should just dedicate myself to creating cartoon screencaps of 50's monster movies.

Also, after the events of "Twitch, Twitch", you can't blame the little guy for being tuckered out. At least he looks happy...

We had that exact same wall clock in our living room.

Holy balls! That...that's the very same RCA TV my grandparents had in their living room!

I remember sleeping over, and watching the old Outer Limits TV show, and eating Flicks! (chocolate candy that came in a little cardboard tube. I don't even know if they sell them anymore)

Writing and drawing this has brought back the odd memory that "Watching TV", for the longest time, meant staring at something on the floor. A big wooden box on the floor. That you could expect to last for 20 years plus, at least, and if something went wrong with it, you called the TV repairman and he came TO YOUR HOUSE and fixed it in your den.
It was a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away.

Lord yes...I remember when we got a new TV, it was smaller, and ended up on top of the old one because you needed a bloody fork lift to get the wood cased set out of the house!

Ive often wondered how in the world Grandpa got that set up the stairs and into the living room to begin with.

In the 70's one of my Dad's jobs was a repo man for a TV rental company. You could go to your local 7-11 and rent a TV for the week. These were the nice portable ones that only weighed about 40 lbs. :) Great references. I remember Fangoria but forgot about Famous Monsters. Although I liked the monster movie Saturdays I was definately more of a Benny Hill fan.

Oh man, I lived in Famous Monsters. I had the Aurora monster model kits and everything. Though Benny Hill did offer a plethora of boobs, which I began to appreciate more as I got older. :D
