King Features is considering rebooting a “retired” comics, with new writers/ new artists/new plots (you know, beating a dead horse, since there are No New Ideas). One of the contenders is Apt. 3-G! And if you thought the oirinal was exciting….

…watch the ladies’ 21st-Century adventures!

Well, heck, while I was somewhere else, doing something, Apartment 3-G closed up shop. I’d like to think the girls found better digs than a Trump Tower at least. Best of luck, Tommie, Margo, and What’s Her Name!

We all know that six weekdays of Apt. 3-G are rehashed into the Sunday edition. Fine. Sometimes cryptic, for lack of space, but usually not, as the plot generally has the velocity of mayonnaise.  Dried-up mayonnaise.

But don’t cut’n’paste the rehash onto new backgrounds and pretend its all new and shiny.  (And don’t leave me to wonder if the color monkeys have been handed blunt-tip safety scissors and given even more resposibilities.)

Fortunately, the Sunday nightmare ends and we’re back at Jack’s Happiness Falls Vet Clinic…

Remember the day-trip that Tommie is making to upstate New York to find a wildlife rehab center for her fawn?  And that the vet in Happiness Falls NY offers her a job (when last we saw Tommie, she was a licensed and practicing R.N./midwife)?

THREE WEEKS GOES BY!  It says that right in narration box!!!  I don’t know what’s more unsettling:  no one has seen Tommie in her place in NYC for nearly a month, or she’s wearing that same damned pink turtleneck that the fawn probably piddled on and that Tommie’s been mucking out stalls in for the last dozen days.  Ewwww.


Is it really Tommie?

…the work proposition from Jack, DVM, was a complete surprise. ‘Cuz vet assistants and nurses are so closely related (most likely the folks of Happiness Falls are desperately trying to find candidates so that the population can outbreed).

Maybe not quite “sexy on a stick” (or a fishin’ pole), but he’s getting there!

I’m sure he’ll still be Enjoying Nature and giving hell to those who endanger it (if they don’t take care of things themselves):
