Alley Oop. Alley Oop was created by V.T. Hamlin and appeared in the comic strip “Alley Oop” (1933-present).

Alley Oop is a Prehistoric Adventurer. He is a cave man, a native of the prehistoric land of Moo. He is not overly intelligent but always tries to do the right thing. In his own time and place he fights for truth and justice, although this battle is hindered by the rulers of Moo, King Guzzle and Queen Umpateedle. Oop is helped, in Moo, by his girlfriend Oola, his sidekick Foozy, and his faithful mount Dinny, a lovable stegosaurus. Several years after his debut Oop is brought to the 20th century by Dr. Elbert Wonmug, a brilliant scientist who had invented a time machine. Oop and Wonmug then travel throughout human history, meeting Ulysses, Richard the Lion-Hearted, and Cleopatra, fighting in the Trojan War, and even going to the moon, in the first televised moon-landing in all of fiction.
