A Daily Dose of the 1970s in Action
"I came for the cakes. I stayed for the comments." – An Official Review from “Anonymous”
What did you need to exclaim about, Teri?
Those guys are so far away you can’t possibly hear them from behind your…rock…?
Unless something really dramatic is happening off-panel by your feet. Like being bitten by a poisonous spider. Or pinched by a crab. Or being stung by a scorpion! Those would all be excellent reasons to exclaim.
Thus ends another stunning page of The Super Dictionary. Tune in next time for the penultimate page of the letter “E”! We all knew they were winding down when they got to the “ex” words — but who knew how close we really were?!
Check out under the cut for today’s unchopped page!
Oh wow! I remember this was a mystery from forever ago!
I guess it wasn’t any of those people. It was just boring ol’ Teri Trapper. (Who I guess is a good guy.)
But apparently that apple is poisoned or something, because Ted is being really insistent that she not eat it. Either that or it’s just his apple and he was saving it for later.
Teri Trapper: Responsible Adult.
I’m curious about what her doctor could give her to make a cold go away. Does this doctor have some kind of magical cure for the common cold? If so, he needs to share!
Remember kids — don’t do drugs! Unless you’re told to do drugs! Or something!
(An off-topic/on-topic aside: Oh my god, D.A.R.E.’s website looks like it’s from 1999. They should really work on that.)
Chasing a bad guy/being chased? (Also I know that’s a Johnny Bravo clip and it’s crap quality, but dear god, it was impossible to find actual Scooby Doo clips of this gag. o_o)
I thought when it was dark you couldn’t see anything at all! Or maybe that’s just when it’s darkest.
How did he get that single dollar, Teri?
Really. I’m super curious.
Were you just staring at it when this nefarious mustachioed man came up at grabbed it out of your hand? And did you just notice that he took it? Because he’s nowhere near you anymore. Quick! Before he escapes out the panel!
(You know what, Super Dictionary? It might have also been prudent to mention that a “diamond” is a shape that is like a square on its corner. But I guess baseball takes precedence, so okay.)
Well since I don’t know what town you live in, I guess that’s entirely possible. But if you live in Gotham, that is just a lie, because Batman is the best detective in that town.
I suppose it’s pretty prudent of The Super Dictionary to include the word “detective” in their selective children’s lexicon, seeing as a good chunk of their chosen cast are detectives in one way or another.
And so ends another page of The Super Dictionary! Come back tomorrow for more desk-jumping, note-passing, motorcycle-denting action!

Maybe you’re the people they based their SWEET MOVES on.
I’ll believe that. But I’ll also choose to believe that they spent the whole night dancing with other people. I’m still convinced that their marriage is on some serious rocks.
That’s pretty stingy, Ted. I mean, a bunch of cupcakes, fine. Some people like cupcakes instead of big cakes.
But just one cupcake?
Not only is that kind of mean, but it’s a lot of work to figure out exactly how much of each ingredient you need to make a single cupcake. Are you trying to tell Teri you think she’s fat? I feel like this marriage is failing fast.
