While the Random Acts of Geekery is operating in Reduced Content Mode, on Fridays this summer, you can expect to see me alternate between the Give-A-Show videos and Fandom Library... this week, naturally, it's Give-A-Show Friday!
I honestly don't know how many of my readers are living in the Puget Sound area of Washington State, but for those of you who do, I wanted to put the word out about something... John Munn's Comic Book Ink (located in the Lakewood Towne Center) is in serious danger of closing in the next few months unless they get some much-needed revenue! It's a shame to hear about this happening, because not only is John a helluva great guy, he's also been committed to making Comic Book Ink the best comic book store possible!
Anyone reading this who is able to get over to the shop and find some goodies to purchase (or even just some gift certificates to use in the future), please do so as soon as you can!
As mentioned early last month, the Random Acts of Geekery is going into reduced content mode through the summer, to give me a chance to get caught back up, as well as to prepare some new features and reorganize things! I hope you'll continue to check in daily to see what feature comes up each day!
Original Appearances: The Oddball Couple (DePatie-Freleng, 1975-1977), ABC Television
Other Appearances: Unknown
Biography: Given that The Oddball Couple was inspired by The Odd Couple, it should come as no surprise that Fleabag the dog was the sloppy Oscar type to Spiffy's Felix. The two animals lived in the same house, half-mansion/half-shack, and shared a car that was half-pristine/half junker.
Group Affiliation: Fleabag and Spiffy rented an office together, so presumably they co-ran a business together.
Miscellaneous: Paul Winchell voiced Fleabag. Ironically enough, The Oddball Couple first aired the same year The Odd Couple was cancelled by ABC!
The next Sheena tale in this issue (written by W. Morgan Thomas, with art by Robert Webb) is an untitled tale. Sheena visits the Dussa tribe which has been plagued by an “evil one” who is killing all the food beasts and poisoning their water. Sheena vows not to let them be driven from their land.
