Half the Battle


#8 — Nightmare Assault on America’s Pastime

This is one of those rare Half the Bat­tle strips that imi­tates an actu­al scene from the Sun­bow car­toon.  The episode was called Night­mare Assault and it is one of my favorites.  In it, Dr. Mind­ben­der cre­ates a devise that gives all of the Joes night­mares, leav­ing them tired, ner­vous wrecks.  The only Joe that is unaf­fect­ed is Low Light.  Why?  Because he already does­n’t sleep, due to insom­nia.  And why does he have insom­nia?  Because he is afraid of hav­ing night­mares… Even­tu­al­ly, Low Light enters every­one’s dreams, fac­ing his and every­one else’s fears, and shoots a bunch of giant rat cars in the face while scream­ing mani­a­cal­ly stuff like, “I’m not afraid any­more, Dad!  What do you think of your son now?!?  BWA HA HA HA!”

Any­way, there was a scene in the episode where Life­line and Lady Jaye were talk­ing about the night­mares they were hav­ing.  Lady Jaye reveals, in a way that got past the cen­sors of a kids show, that she had to sing the Nation­al Anthem at a base­ball game naked.  (Lady Jaye and states of undress seemed to be a theme of the series that I may hit on lat­er…)  Any­way, the scene was actu­al­ly real­ly fun­ny, pos­si­bly more so than the strip below.  But what this strip has that the actu­al scene does­n’t is a diss on base­ball.  I can think of few­er things worse than hav­ing to watch a game…
