In the early comics, Oop's adventures were confined to his home town in the Stone Age.
In 1939, however, Hamlin introduced something that would change the strip forever: a time machine !
Created by scientist Dr Elbert Wonmug, the time machine accidentally transported Alley and Ooola to the 20th century. After that, Alley, (and occasionally Ooola), traveled to many eras of earth's history, including ancient Egypt and Greece, Old England, the American Wild West, and even the Moon.
In his travels, Alley met many famous people in history, and often saved the day by his heroic actions.
Not a genius, by any means, Alley sometimes caused problems too, which threatened to change history, until the problem was fixed.
The strip's blend of adventure, science fiction, and humor has been a winner for 83 years, and has been translated into many languages around the world... (G.K)
