Pappy's #1698 that Natch has an as-yet unformed teenage brain, with years left until he is fully mature. Along with an undeveloped brain, teenagers often don’t get enough sleep, which can lead to bad decisions, like jumping out of bed and going out in pajamas to rescue a pal.
I love The Kilroys, a comic drawn by Bob Wickersham for ACG. “Wick,” as he sometimes signed himself, was an animator moonlighting at ACG’s line of funny animal and teenage Archie-style, comics. The stories are situation comedies featuring the Kilroy family, Mom, Dad, Sis, Natch, and Natch’s pal, “Solid” Jackson. A theme that showed up occasionally in these comics had boys wearing women’s clothes. Guys in women’s clothes...ha ha ha. Very funny. Like Jack Benny in Charley's Aunt. No sexual or identity confusion here, folks!
