    Who dat? 2-18-13 Youngster Edition



    Folks 30 years and over are ineligible to submit answers (but are as always welcome to chide folks for having the audacity/poor judgement to be born after you). But if you are 29 or under feel free to tell us who is depicted in the image above.
    Winner gets an all expenses paid trip to Norfolk, NE!
    People will miss that it once meant something to be Southern or Midwestern. It doesn't mean much now, except for the climate. The question, “Where are you from?” doesn't lead to anything odd or interesting. They live somewhere near a Gap store, and what else do you need to know? - Garrison Keillor

    Why don't you knock it off with them negative waves?
    Why don't you dig how beautiful it is out here?
    Why don't you say something righteous and hopeful for a change?
    From Kelly's Heroes (1970)


    Are you sure you're not hurt ?
    No. Just some parts wake up faster than others.
    Broke parts take a little longer, though.

    I am 30+ and have no idea who/what that is. My partner knows the name in Spanish.

    I have a year to guess... not sure it is going to happen....

    I remember Denver the last Dinosaur and of course Dinosaurs the puppet like show... but I got nothing on that.

    I probably could have set the threshold at 40, but wanted to reduce the "My older sibling used to read......" syndrome.

    Aw, c'mon, JNA was just trying to assist me. Kinda like in basketball when one player throws the ball near the basket to a teammate who jumps, catches the ball in mid air and immediately scores a basket.

    More like the player who throws the ball to teammate who isn't looking but turns just in time to catch it with his face.

    I wonder if there were ever any songs written about this comic strip cave man character?

    Is there a move in basketball where one player throws the ball up for the other player to dunk?

    34 y/o (for a few more days) eldest of 3 and I can say I have never seen this comic in my life and I was a pretty avid "Funnies" reader as a tot.

    I think there is, but its name escapes me at the moment.

    Yes it was on the Billboard charts.
    Was that too much of a hint ?

    We've strung this out long enough. The answer is Alley Oop. It was once a very popular daily comic strip. The guy who created it died in the early 70's and I thought the strip disappeared completely at that time (I know it did in the Freep and the local rag), but I learned from the wiki article that it actually survived in syndication with different artists even to this day! (although to a significantly reduced audience apparently)

    Once you said comic, I figured it out. Never really read it though... it wasn't like Calvin and Hobbes, Dilbert, or anything...
