TORONTO: I AM COMING FOR YOU! TCAF is this weekend!
I will be at table 222 (with Topatoco) on the 2nd floor Saturday 5/7 and Sunday 5/8. I will have books 1 and 2 (and I will draw dumb things in them for you), stickers, buttons, prints (probably a “The Doctor Is In” print), and maybe a couple of shirts.
“The Doctor Is In” shirt based off the “You’re The Last of The Time Lords, Charlie Brown” comic is here!
I hope you enjoy this very unusual thing my brain (and subsequently my body) did in the wee hours of the night. I started trying to write a comic about how Megan Fox was ejected from Transformers 3: The Wall (presumably for NOT buffing Michael Bay’s Ferrari with her own buttocks slathered in Professor Explosionheimer’s Patented Gluteus Auto-Balm), but I couldn’t see to… care? Yeah, that’s the thing I wan’t able to do.
As it turned out I cared a lot more about 90’s family sitcom character-inconsistencies than the fate of Ms. Fox. I guess I’m really growing up. Speaking of, why did Uncle Jessie change his last name from Cochran to Katsopolis. If he was dodging the INS, that seems like the opposite way to go.
COMMENTERS: If you saw the trailer for Transformers: Tales From The Darkside, feel free to comment on it or offer an alternate subtitle for it, as we once did with the Spider-Man musical. After seeing last week’s Doctor Who, I have a feeling The Doctor had something to do with that spaceship crashing on the moon. You can also remind us of your most nagging sitcom weirdnesses if you like.

I have a love of characters who go upstairs and just never come back down. In my fanfic, she becomes obsessed with Japanese culture and falls victim to the idea of hikikomori: the family is too embarrassed to discuss it, so no one mentions it again.
Though, Roseanne asking original Becky (upon her re-appearance) "Where the hell have you been?" was one of my favorite moments of the latter years.
Transformers: Tokyo Drift
WHAT?! Time-traveling, clone-creating, mechanoid-making Urkle ISN'T CANON!?!?
I'm going to consult the Wiki-canon files on this one. There shall be Hell to pay!
Bruce Lee Kung Fu Clone Urkel is CERTAINLY canon.
I think Julie Taymor just found the hot new Musical that will get her good name back. Music by Rebecca Black and Special effects by Michael Bay.
I'm gonna go with the old classic of richies older brother in happy days I suspect that he was in fact not real but a delusion caused by a gas leak in the cuningham house hold which the fanz fixed by hitting it.
I love it when a comic has multiple funny bits throughout, besides just the punchline. Probably the funniest moment for me here is the line "famfic – that's right, I said famfic."
Transformers 3: Nobody remember Pink Floyd, right?
Youre just saying that because I finally shipped your book.
There was the watered down Aunt Viv replacement on Fresh Prince. She was just never angular or nose flarey enough to convince me….
Also, back to Roseanne, if you watch the first episode David is in, he's introduced as Darlene's friend Kevin.
The first Aunt Viv was boss.
They do a handwave later (like the "where the hell have you been") when discussing how whipped David is:
Roseanne: "His name's not even David. Darlene just calls him that"
Funny you should mention the Spider-Man Musical – because obviously Transformers: Turn Off The Dark has to be a contender.
Also, if only in the name of tradition: Transformers 3: Electric Bogalee
I should probably point out that I made that joke in the actual comic above.
I did not notice that. Bad me. You probably shouldn't point it out; you should probably just shake your head sadly and turn away.
Also, it really should have been Boogalee, not Bogalee. All in all, not my best ever comment.
Transformers 3: And if the Band You're In Starts Playing Different Tunes
Furthermore, [sarcasm] and I swear this is only meant to continue the Pink Floyd joke trend, certainly not referring to any audience member who can stomach these movies without Rifftrax: [/sarcasm]
Transformers 3: Brain Damage
I do like the sound of Transformers 3: A Momentary Lapse of Reason
South Park tonight has a Dalek in it fingers deposed tha an appearance is made by the Doctor!!!!
Man iPad hasnt figured out how to spell yet, Dalek Southpark nuff said.
I love the idea that the Conners are living in mortal fear of new Becky. Puts the last few seasons in an entirely new context. That's probably why Dan had his heart attack
I giggled and got the "your reading weird shit again, aren't you?" face. Or maybe it was the 'not more LOLcats' face. Meh, either way.
I recently found myself wondering what happened to EVERYONE on Blossom. Did that show even have a finale or did they just gradually pull it in the hopes no one would ask about it?
Don't know about the future, that's anybody's guess.
Ain't no good reason for getting all depressed.
Not a sitcom, per se, but definitely 90's – my mom bought all 3 seasons of Due South, and I just can't seem to muster any enthusiasm for the Replacement Ray they brought in when it came back for the third season after it was cancelled. There is a thin story to explain his presence, and I'm sure the actor is fine, but I still don't want to watch the rest of the season.
I can only imagine that the sister from Boy Meets World is there too. She disappears for like 3 seasons, then reappears as like a 13 year old. Freaks me out, man.
Let's not forget a new mom was brought in for The Fresh Prince of Bel Air, a non-Will-Smith-hating mom at that!

Knight Rider, when they replaced Bonnie with April. "Oh, she went back to school or something. Yeah, that's the ticket. Not that the show 'needed' a hot blonde or what instead."

Okay, I need to stop now or I'm going to be thinking in puns all day.
How's this for an obscure one? Does anyone remember a show called the Torkelsons? The mother had five kids in it (two boys, three girls) but when they did the spin-off-ish series she only had three kids. (two girls and a boy) So, what happened to the other two? I think they got sent "to a farm upstate."
C'mon, Joel… you're from Dallas. You should know that you can't actually kill Patrick Duffy. Just when you think he's dead, you wake up and find out it was all just a dream. And for some reason, he's in your bathroom taking a shower.
Aren't we forgetting the "Two Darens" hooplah from bewitched? And Kirstie Alley take someone else's place on Cheers?
The two Darens from what? (goes and checks out the ancient TV archives) wowsers …. Marty Feldman eyes!!….. That is going way back in time lou. Any connection between you and Mr Peabody?
No, Thrudd, I'm just a TV buff, like so many of us here. While we're on the topic, didn't Megan Fox get started on Rodeanne?
Rebeca (Alley) comes in (not actually replaces, per se) when Diane (Shelly Long) goes off to write a book (Long was pregnant again and needed a break). Diane came back in the last episode to [spoilers] marry Sam, while Rebeca, who always wanted to marry rich, ends up with a plummer.[/spoilers]
