We spend a Sunday watching Lizzie deliberately torment Mike by trying to find a TV show he hates to watch. Try something EDUCATIONAL, Liz!!!

(Strip Number 6695, Original Publication Date, 19 October 1986)

Panel 1: As a bored, irritated Mike looks on, Lizzie stares at the television and mutters "Now, let me see."

Panel 2: His frustration grows as she changes the channel.

Panel 3: As she slowly goes up and down the dial, Mike starts to get antsy.

Panel 4: He rolls his eyes when she changes to yet another station.

Panel 5: She gets all rage-faced when he tells her to hurry up and pick something to watch already.

Panel 6: She does the Elly "closed-eye lecture" thing when she reminds him that it's her turn.

Panel 7: After all, Mom said that she gets to choose what to watch because he chose the last one.

Panel 8: She then flips to another station. Again, this drives Michael crazy.

Panel 9: He bellows "Well, what's taking you so doggone LONG?" so loudly, she is physically moved ahead an inch.

Panel 10: When Elizabeth tells him that she wants to find something he hates, Mike is all gobsmacked.

Summary: If we do get notes and they aren't a Little Lindy show, I do not expect to see anything about Corbeil or about how siblings shouldn't fight. I expect to see either an arch comment about so much television and nothing worth watching OR some ranting about how a child makes the best remote because she can't get lost in the couch cushions only for some reason, they don't make television sets with dials any longer.
