    To hear its song is to go mad under its spell.

    The seagulls are even more aggressive this year.

  3. Bruce A Munro Says:

    Thork the Hairy always got pissed off whenever something interrupted his rope-skipping.

  4. fred Says:

    But it was Raquel Welch, not Martine Beswick, who got nabbed by the pterodactyl in One Million Years, BC.

    @Bruce: Thork the Hairy? I assumed he was ‘Sos the Rope’.

    (The last appearance of Zoo, formerly Legs & Co, after their official finale earlier that edition doing a wondrously Flick Colby-ish literal-minded routine

  7. JuanPaul Says:

    The bat-like creature appears to be grooming itself, so what seems to be happening is that Sos is trying to abduct the woman. He forgot the first rule of sneaking up on someone, which is to NOT sing a war cry just before attacking.

  8. B. Chiclitz Says:

    Sos the Rope sure has some weird pecs!

  9. Leak Says:

    That’s gonna be a match made in heaven – Earthwind and fire!

    “To hear its song was to go mad under its spell’


    I have no idea what’s going on here. Even the blurb is confusing. Does “its” refer to the pterodactyl or the Earthwind?

    And the mouseover text makes me wonder where fire is. I think they could use it, seemingly being starkers in an icy void. Unless that’s supposed to be the Earthwind swirling?

    In any case, @Vlttp has got it — that’s Sos and his Rope. And, as @BC says, his weird pecs.

  11. THX 1139 Says:

    Surely the song referred to is Gloomy Sunday? Or I suppose that’s an urban myth, spoilsports?

  12. Verylatetotheparty Says:

    @GSSxn: Sos the Rope, possibly Var the Stick (background, bottom left) and in the foreground, Suzie the Boobs.

    Very weird pecs, it sort of looks like a flesh coloured life-jacket.

    Charcoal tablets highly recommended to treat Earthwind

  14. Bruce A Munro Says:

    I can’t quite tell, even in the larger pictures: does Golstork have one or two eyes? If it’s one, we’re seeing a two thirds on view and Golstork looks menacing, but if it’s two we have a profile and Golstork looks rather unhappy, like it feels bad about all this fuss it’s provoking.

    The woman looks like she doesn’t belong to this tribe: the lack of body hair could just be the usual Fantastic Sexual Dimorphism, but the floral-print-inside skirt[1] and the gold bracelets suggest a more advanced culture than the Caveman Couture look of the men. Perhaps Golstork is actually here to rescue her from Sos the Rope et al?

    [1] Is she wearing it inside out?

  15. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Bruce: Maybe it’s a reversible skirt?

    I’m seeing one eye on Gostork and agree it might be there to rescue her from Sos and pals. If it’s not, she’s using it as an opportune distraction to make a break for it.

  16. A.R.Yngve Says:

    To hear its song is to get down and funky under its spell.

  17. Verylatetotheparty Says:

    @Bruce: ‘I’m being pursued by three cavemen and a one eyed pterodactyl thing and didn’t even have time to put on my bra! Do you think I care if my skirt’s on inside out?!’

  18. Anti-Sceptic Says:

    I like it when the space sheep are taking time off.

  19. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @A-S: If you were a sheep, it’d be smart to make yourself scarce when there’s a pterodactyl around. And armed cavemen.

    @Vlttp: GSS!

  20. Verylatetotheparty Says:

    @ARY: 16. I’m confused by your comment. What did Earth win? – and who is Dan D. Fire?

    @GSSxn: If he keeps skipping instead of running, she might just make it.

  21. GSS ex-noob Says:

    @Vlttp: Between the jumping and Golstork seemingly zeroing in on Sos, I think she’s got a good chance. The skirt’s not restraining her legs, so if she can pick up the pace a bit, she might get clear. The other two are farther away — or very small — so I’d say they’re out of contention.

    Run, damsel, run!

  22. Tat Wood Says:

    @Verylatetotheparty: Dan D Fire, Pilot of the Future, was a comic strip about a well-dressed astronaut and friend of the Prince Regent. He later joined a strict religious order and re-launched the Bonfire of the Vanities.

  23. Verylatetotheparty Says:

    @Tat: Ah, it all makes sense now. As long as there are men like Dan to defend us, Earth will always win.
