I'd been getting people asking about whether this guy would eventually show up. It was him who left the garage in his will to the twins after all!

Ironically, it is Trevor who takes after Lloyd the most. But here you can see why Russ and Reg liked him :)

Yeah you say that now Russ....XD

So that's the guy who will leave the twins the garage in LA.

Ah yes the ol' BBFC rating conundrum, yeah plenty of kids were still watching/playing stuff that they were too young to see, but the BBFC sucks, so who cares! :D

Still I can't help but feel a bit sad though, since we all know what will happen to him. :(

We've all got to go sometime... :(

Sorry for the double post, but I just realised something, I'm only a year older then the twins. :)

I'm only 7 months older than Trevor XD

Though for some folks who read this strip, I'm guessing the only regularly recurring characters they'd be older than would be Willow and Timothy's kids...which makes me feel like an old fart :D

What about Jason?
GoodKaptainKook 13th May 2017, 11:44 PM edit delete reply
Well, Jason already does since he's 5 years younger than me :D Though I'm pretty sure I've seen you've got fans even younger than he is!

i think I was the one who actually asked if we'd see him :D Nice to finally see this ol' timer. Was it ever said exactly how he died, anyways? Natural causes? Old age? Murder? I don't recall, but I don't think so...

Well, I saw a lot of stuff when I was young probably years before I should've :D You're looking at someone who A. Remembers seeing the Simpsons in their classic years when I was very young B. Saw both King of the Hill and Family Guy when they premiered as a child and C. Saw PG-13 and R rated movies before I was 10 (in particular, I remember seeing the Eddie Murphy version of the Nutty Professor when I was like...6? 7?). I didn't grow up to become a sadistic individual or a serial killer, unlike what some people might say will happen if you expose kids to stuff beyond their age group early on in life. It's a bit of wonder sometimes I didn't emerge very messed up, though :D So yeah...I can empathize with the twins a lot here!

It is never disclosed how he went west. Not sure if I should ever give it any real thought :P

He was "the only uncle they liked, and he was broke."

Is that the 1st or 2nd Terminator film?
FreyFox 12th May 2017, 7:05 PM edit delete reply
The only great uncle they liked rather. They did like their uncle Paul too ^^.

This is Terminator 2 ^^.

We finally get to see Uncle Lloyd. Turns out he actually did move to LA in the future!

Also, I seriously need to see both Terminator movies.
FreyFox 12th May 2017, 7:06 PM edit delete reply
There were five movies, but those first two are the ones worth seeing ^^.
Dan 14th May 2017, 5:56 PM edit delete reply
Terminator 1 and 2 are classics. Terminator 3 has its moments but pales in comparison.

Salvation and Genisys are another story. Imagine Michael Bay doing Terminator movies. That should be an apt description. ^^
Section79 14th May 2017, 10:26 PM edit delete reply
In my mind, there are only two Terminator movies.

Uncle Lloyd kind of reminds me of my uncle a little. We went to the movie theater once and got the biggest size of popcorn and drink there. Twas a fun time! I remember the first R rated movie I ever sall. Or one of them. It was Saw. Don't know which one it was but I was just thinking "why is that guy being ripped apart?" XD For some reason it did not disturb me. I do like action packed movies now and then myself. Sometimes with lots of intense violence! :-P

Wow!! Referencing the beginning of the series. The legendary great uncle Lloyd himself finally arrives. He seems like a cool guy for his age. :D
FreyFox 12th May 2017, 7:07 PM edit delete reply
Trevor takes after him a bit ^^.

Looks like one side of the Harvey family tree will have a cool guy. First, Great Uncle Llyod. Next, Trevor. ;)
FreyFox 13th May 2017, 10:01 AM edit delete reply
I think Paul is pretty cool too. There's one in each generation ^^
Feige Roman 12th May 2017, 6:14 AM edit delete reply
Man, I didn't think this uncle would look so cool! ;)

And letting his nephews watch a movie that they're way too young for? Ooh, naughty, naughty! :P Mind you, this may provide an explaination as to what possessed Reggie to think showing Rebecca 'The Empire Strikes Back' was a good idea! (Like uncle, like nephew, eh?)
FreyFox 12th May 2017, 7:07 PM edit delete reply
It's actually the twins' dad who is his nephew, which would make the twins his "great nephews", or something like that :P

(I'm going to look stupid when my message above is posted. I asked which Terminator film they were watching because on my phone I couldn't see the "2". I can see it now that I'm on the PC).

Sometimes some things are still best left to a desktop, eh? XD

Because of the long hours I spend at work I don't have the luxury of being able to wait until I get home to view the webcomics on my PC. Usually it's a brief glance at them during my lunch break or in the taxi home.

You can't zoom in on your phone?

It has a zoom, but the controls are unreliable. Sometimes it magnifies too far, other times it activates links. I avoid using it.

I see you uncensored another f-bomb
GoodKaptainKook 14th May 2017, 5:59 PM edit delete reply

He said "flicks" not "f**ks"...
LongTom 15th May 2017, 1:20 AM edit delete reply
Yes, I remember reading the book "Batman And Me" by Bob Kane where one of the things he mentions is how, as a comic book artist, he was not allowed to use the word "flick" because the ink might run together.
Guest 15th May 2017, 7:46 PM edit delete reply
No no, there aren't any f-bombs in there.
