For those of you who are concerned that the last panel of today comic is a little graphic or bleak, would it comfort you to know that David Seville was with The Chipmunks at the moment of impact?
Vote for Theater Hopper at Top Web Comics to see what I'm talking about. There's an incentive image related to this week's comic waiting for you if you do.
And speaking of Top Web Comics... can I tell you guys how awesome you are? Since I threw the link back up on the home page last week, you guys have responded PHENOMENALLY. Theater Hopper was ranked somewhere like 4,000th on the list of comics in their database. But after one round of voting, we're positioned now at 138. That's not easy to do in one week's time - especially when Theater Hopper only updates once a week!
So I wanted to say thanks to everyone who visited the site more than once last week and placed their vote. I want to encourage everyone to do the same. I know it's hard to remember to visit when there's no new content to greet you, but if you could swing by once a day and click on that link, it helps me out a lot.
Let's see if we can break into the Top 100 this week!
As for this week's comic... yeah, I'm sorry. Sort of. No I'm not.
LOOK... I don't like The Chipmunks. I didn't even like them when they were popular in the 80's. As a 30-something man child, you'd think that would give them an automatic pass. It doesn't.
That said, I really, really, REALLY don't like the current CG version of The Chipmunks. I'm still upset that Alvin prominently ate fecal matter in the trailer for the first film!
I mean, I understand the movie are for kids and poop jokes are supposed to be funny. But let's try to elevate the bar a little, please?
Still, you gotta admit that it's at least a little bit impressive that the franchise has been around this long. Who would have guessed that a novelty song that was recorded in 1958 would spawn all these television shows and movies over a half-century later. Not me.
But then, as H. L. Mencken said, Nobody ever went broke underestimating the intelligence of the American people." To that end, the third Chipmunk movie "Chipwrecked" seemed like the perfect opportunity to end it all.
Do you agree? Disagree? Did today's comic go too far? Did it not go far enough? Leave your comments below! And - as always - thanks for reading! I'll see you here next week!
Yup. And - spoiler alert - it's intentional.
In fact... it goes all the way TO THE TOP!
The coordinates have been set, General!
Thank you, Private!
Are you sure you want to go through with this Seville?
We have to nuke them from orbit.
It's the only way to be sure.
