Transcript

Panel 1

Beaver and Steve are chased by zombie dinosaurs.
Steve: "Quick Beaver! To the time machine!"
Beaver: "This is a highly disagreeable situation."
Beaver SCOOT!s along at a brisk pace, trying to keep up with Steve.

Panel 2

Beaver and Steve arrive at a 1960s sci-fi style round red TIME-O-POD.
Beaver: "We're here - But we'll never get the machine started before the zombie dinosaurs catch us!"
Steve: "Don't worry Beaver I brought along my newest invention for just such an evtuality..."

Panel 3

Steve: "My FOSSILIZATION RAY!"
Beaver: "Coo!"
Steve: "It will turn their bones to solid rock, making it impossible for them to move!"
Steve fires the ray gun at the dinosaurs with a WUM!
The dinosaurs immediately begin to FOSSILIZE! and LAPIDIFY!

Panel 4

Steve: "Of course, the effects are only temporary..."
Beaver: "Oh no! How long have we got?"
Steve: "Only about 65 million years."
Beaver: "We'd better hurry!"

Panel 5

Beaver and Steve are now seated snugly within the Time-o-Pod.
Steve: "Flux Capacitor charged and ready..."
Beaver: "Wait a minute! This isn't the time machine we came in..."
The antennae on top of the Time-o-Pod begin to SPIN! while the machine VIBRATEs and RATTLEs with energy.
Steve: "No time to be picky! Initiating Tipler Cylinder Nudge..."

Panel 6

The Time-o-Pod disappears with a WORRNK!
Future Scientist: "Um... oh dear"

Panel 7

[About 65 million years later...]
Steve: "We made it! And with absolutely no unforseen reprocussions whatsoever!"
Beaver: "Hmm... but somehow I can't shake the feeling we're forgetting something..."

Panel 8

Steve: "Gadzooks! You're right!"
Steve: "I left my sandwiches in the cretaceous era! No!"
The fossilized remains of dinosaurs CRAASH! and SMASH! through the doors of a natural history museum, causing the patrons to PANIC and FLEE!
Museum Patron: "Aah! The re-animated skeletons of zombified dinosaurs! My greatest fear!"

Fun Facts

  • Steve retrieves a Fossilization Ray from the Time-o-Pod, claiming it to be his latest invention. Since Beaver and Steve flee in a different time machine than the one they came in, the ray gun is actually stolen from someone in the future, just like so many of Steve's other "inventions".
  • On the wall of the museum are some stone face-like designs. From left to right they are: A cat; A monkey, which is frowning; A fish facing stage right; A fish facing stag left; and Count Dracula.
