And it's confirmed today.... :)

(Penfold would *survive* -- he'd just be in a mental asylum. Probably in the next room over from Sandy's. :) )

We can't really say 'confirmed', it's more of a retcon. :)

As I was writing out Roger's dialogue for Thursday's strip, I just needed a generic name- something that wasn't "Colonel Chaos" or "General Malfunction" or something. I just went with Kay since it was alliterative, and made me think of K/Kay from Men In Black.

When everybody started wondering if I meant a character from Danger Mouse, I figured there was enough pop culture knowledge there to use that as a punchline for Friday's strip. 🙂

Not to cost myself some nerd cred or anything, but I've never seen a full episode of DM, and have no idea who Colonel K is or what he does. 😋

Doc.

How is that even possible?? Danger Mouse ranks right up there with Monty Python.

Colonel K was DM's boss.

Cor! Doc hasn't seen Danger Mouse? This NEEDS to be rectified!

I was hooked back in college.  When I found the entire run on discs I leapt.  One of the most enduring cartoons, ever.

Colonel K is the stereotypical Brit as a stereotypical officer.  Loads off tongue in cheek humor in the series.
