Lillie Awesome Comments: “I’m not going to chicken out this time…I’m going to ask the dreamy Earthman to the Robot Spring Formal…just put it out there…the worst he can say is no, and anyway, I’ve got a lot going for me; he could do way worse…Omigosh omigosh omigosh – here he comes! O.k., just be cool…”

    An early attempt to invent both the ‘super robot’ and ‘big eyes small mouth’ genres of anime.

    The Springfield Republican is endorsing a group of white men hunting down and preemptively shooting someone who looks and acts differently from they…ahead of its time, I suppose.
