This Week's Strip

#113) "Jingle All the Way" May 31, 1999

Just when Skippy thinks the whole ordeal is finally over and he can put it behind him, Liska makes it even worse. He really should have known better; there's no such thing as "being totally even" as far as she's concerned.

This is another one of those gags that required another plotline to be completed first before I could run it. In this particular case, I had to make sure I ran the story where Liska found the camera at the dump before doing this one.

For the most part, the various MF episodes are pretty self-contained, but there have been a handful of times when I've had to postpone one and shoehorn in another story that logically should be ran before it (for instance, the Lo-Tox Antifreeze needed to be introduced before Liska found Rozzy for the first time to make one of the jokes work).

It's not always easy to plan things because there are a lot of elements to keep track of and the various story ideas I've thought up have rarely come to me in chronological order, complicating the decision process of what story to do next; sometimes a great last minute idea can screw up the whole order even further and force me to reschedule everything.
