Title: "Persian Goof"

Story (out of 24 pages): 6 p.

Writer: J. M. Sweet

Penciller: J. M. Sweet

Letterer: J. M. Sweet

Colorist: Jack Staten Monahew

Summary:

In a visual homage to the classic Bugs Bunny cartoons, Jon, Josh, and Ben tunnel underground and take the fabled "wrong turn at Albuquerque", ending up smack in the middle of the Saudi Arabian desert. They meet up with Abdul Ahmani Sobah, a Iraqi border patrol soldier who is seriously behind the times. He doesn't know the Persian Gulf War ended years before and, in fact, refuses to believe it until Saddam Hussein personally tells him so (he apparently also hasn't heard the news of Saddam's current incarcerated state). The boys are forced to hide out in an abandoned U.S. fortress until Sobah ceases his attack...but it could be a long wait.

Notes
  Sobah's camel's name is Clyde, a reference to Ray Stevens' "Ahab the Arab". Josh even calls his this on page 23.

  Josh pulling Sobah's turban down on page 20 and Jon hitting him with a door on the following page are lifted right from the cartoon "Sahara Hare" (Freleng, 1955). The final gag is from another picture Bugs did with Sam as a Confederate soldier who, like Sobah, fails to realize the war has ended.

  The manner in which Sobah launches a missile on page 21 recalls a rude political cartoon that was making the rounds during the 1991 Gulf conflict. It showed an Arab launching a missile by striking a visibly upset camel's testicles with a mallet, much the same manner as seen here, though the joke is toned down somewhat.

Goofs and Nitpicks
    "Albuquerque" is misspelled as "Albequerque". Also, Ben misquotes the line somewhat; Bugs always said he "knew I should'a taken dat left toin".


____________________________________________________
There are four pages of filler in this issue:

"Out to Lunch". Josh and Jon debate over the school lunch special.
"Joshua Cline's Experiment File #32623: The Dancing Shoes". Josh invents very special dancing shoes.
"Nothing To Sneeze At". Jon and Ben admire Angela's new fur coat. An early working title for this cartoon was "Fur-Gone Conclusion".
"Snow Job". Ben helps Jon with the distasteful task of shoveling snow.
