Today's strip is all about how today's spoiled children need too much entertainment.

(Strip Number, 654, Original Publication Date, 13 July 1984)

Panel 1: Mike asks Vicky how much longer it'll take for them to get to Vancouver.

Panel 2: She says that they're going to have a lay-over in Calgary so it'll take another three hours.

Panel 3: As we look at the too much stuff already that Mike has to play with, he thought-bubbles that he wishes that he had more to play with.

Summary: If there are notes, they're clearly going to be about how simply awful it is that children today want more stimulation than WE MOMS can be expected to provide. Back when WE MOMS were children, WE MOMS didn't need all that junk. WE MOMS could entertain ourselves by watching grout mildew.
