LOAC Essentials 4: Alley Oop 1939 In 1939 Vincent Trout Hamlin had been writing and drawing the successful Alley Oop for more than five years In Alley Oop Hamlin created a unique concept marrying his fascination with dinosaurs and prehistoric times to a rollicking style of storytelling and drawing that was simultaneously serious fantastic and loaded with slapstick The series was set in the kingdom of Moo and starred Alley Oop the club-wielding caveman his girlfriend Ooola friends Dinny the dinosaur and Foozy (who speaks in rhyme) plus Oop's rival King Guz and Guz's Queen Umpateedle Yet Hamlin knew that the strip's horizons in Moo were limited So it was in early 1939 that Alley Oop and Ooola see a mysterious box and to the utter amazement of Guz and his minions promptly fade from view followed by the caption Dear Reader you must now say goodbye to Moo you are to follow Alley Oop in this strangest of many strange adventures - V T Hamlin Oop and Ooola had entered a time machine and were now living in the modern day 20th Century! Their host was the inventor of the time machine Dr Elbert Wonmug! No change of such magnitude had ever occurred in a continuing newspaper strip and readers responded enthusiastically With every time period in history available as a backdrop Alley Oop became even more popular This volume features Oop final Moo adventure followed by his trips to the 20th Century and ancient Greece where he and Ooola share adventures with brave Ulysses the lovely Helen of Troy and the mighty Hercules VT Hamlin would send his characters everywhere and everywhen - but the classic Alley Oop begins with the stories contained in this volume The book is introduced by Michael T Price who first met V T Hamlin in the 1960s and remained friendly with him for the rest of the cartoonist's life Price also composed the musical score for Hip Pocket Theatre production Alley Oop
