"The Gremlin Who Knew Too Much"
Issue#102: "The Gremlin Who Knew Too Much"
Barnaby shows off at school...
Notes and References:
The title of this issue comes from the 1934 Alfred Hitchcock film "The Man Who Knew Too Much". The film tells the story of an American couple on vacation who accidentally get involved in an assassination plot which leads to the abduction of their child. The couple must find a way to rescue their kidnapped child. The film was remade by Alfred Hitchcock in 1956 and starred James Stewart and Doris Day.
This issue sees the return of school teacher Mr. Alighieri who last appeared as a zombie in #Issue#76: "Crisis On Mixed Up Earths...Again". All the child characters also appear in this issue including Barnaby and Loaker Banks, Kathy Dudbert, Emily Hair, Bancroft, Aldbug Lobings, Cecil Lobings and even Big Kenny who last appeared in Issue#7: "Hide, Seek and Barnaby!".
Barnaby mentions several key historical events and figures in Moloch Falls. This includes- the Fall of Moloch (seen in Issue#64: "Crisis On Mixed Up Earths"), a noble knight named Sir Barnabus the Red (a knight that Barnaby may be named after) and an earthquake that occured in 1986. Barnaby is also about to mention a famous inventor that lived in Moloch Falls but Mr. Alighieri interrupts him.
