I’ve never seen a radio controlled Viking ship, but they must exist somewhere, because Jeddy has one. And with Vikings all the rage nowadays, with “How to drain your dragon”, “Vikings”, and the like, I thought I would dust off this old episode with Jeddy thinking he is just going down to the pier(or lake, or pond) to enjoy his newly bought radio controlled Viking ship, but garnering a little more attention than he probably wanted to.
I’ve noticed that Jeddy really didn’t get to voice many of the punch lines in this comic strip. But in this one, he shows that he can be more than a nice, mild-mannered boy with a quick-witted comeback that seems to cut Gralen to the quick.
And not only does he manage to insult Gralen AND his grandpa(and his whole family) in one fell swoop, but he does it while listening in on Gralen’s conversation. How’s that for nerve?!
We’ve probably all felt like this baby dinosaur has felt at one time or another. Sometimes when waking up we just want to crawl back under the covers and not have to deal with the mundane tasks and pressures of a new day, or when faced with meeting new people we just want to crawl back under our “shell” where it is comfy and familiar.
Whoa! That’s getting a little too deep there, and a little too serious for this episode that is simply dealing with Gralen and Jenny’s new baby who, seeing the people he is going to be living with for at least the next 18 years, decides he likes the looks of things better in his egg.
I think he must have put a lock on that egg, because their baby is never seen or mentioned again after this episode. Apparently he was a one-joke baby because I never used him/her again.
Note: If you haven’t noticed, my pen name has been skillfully added to this comic strip episode due to my real name being on the paper(I used the photo fixing software called Pixlr, btw).
What?! You are probably saying, “Sterling Holobyte is not your real name?! I never would have guessed!”
Oh well, it’s the best I could do. It is not that easy to match the color of old, yellowing notebook paper for some reason.
