Puck originally started as a university newspaper comic way back in the prehistoric days of 1998. It was reborn in 2011, and is now running weekly, in color. You can see the original run of eighty strips AND the new colour strips all here!
It occurs to me that Puck and Daphne are really very similar characters, though they differ in terms of maturity and experience. Puck, being the older, worldlier woman, would know better than to ever expect a man to side with her on this point. Daphne, on the other hand, still has a lot to learn.
I actually had to put a great deal of research into the proper spelling of ‘Boop-oop-a-doop.’ Now if you ask me, it sounds WAY more like ‘Boop-oop-BEE-doop’ in the cartoons, but Fleischer studios has a whole cartoon named ‘Boop-oop-a-doop’, so I guess that’s canon. Mind you, studios have been wrong of the spellings of their characters’ phrases before. Warner Bros. always claimed the Roadrunner said “Beep beep,” but the original voice actor insisted (quite correctly) that the sound was more a “mheep mheep” than a “beep beep”. I guess it looked too weird on paper. But anyway … I’ve digressed so far that I’m totally lost.
