Comic/Cartoon: The Brilliant Mind of Edison Lee
Viewable Date: 2014-03-06 Pub. Date: 2014-03-06
Image Number: 108080
Caption: Dr. Sagan, before I leave 1972, I want you to know what an inspiration you were to me and millions of other kids interested in science. Wow! Thank you! I'm touched. You're getting very, very sleepy … and if this doesn’t work, can you say all that great stuff to me again tomorrow?

Image Number: 107813
Caption: So you see, Dr. Sagan, since my time machine got smashed into bitty pieces, I'm stuck here in 1972. Fascinating!! It looks as though your only chance to get back to your own time is to create a paradox. Something you do in this time has to make a change in your own time that keeps you from coming to this time. That makes my head hurt. You TOO?! I thought I was the only one.

Image Number: 107811
Caption: Dr. Sagan, you have to help me. I'm a time traveler stuck here in 1972. Really! Ok then, tell me something that's going to happen in the future. Um … in five minutes the man behind me will ask for your autograph. That merely proves you have excellent powers of deduction. Try again.

Image Number: 107809
Caption: I'm going to be stuck here in 1972 forever. Isn't there anyone who can help? I need a brilliant scientist who can think outside the box … … an expert of physics and time travel. The question is who? Appearing Tonight at the public library. Hear him talk about life, the universe and everything. Dr. Carl Sagan.

Image Number: 107509
Caption: When we last saw Edison, his time machine had just fallen out of the back of farmer Crandall's truck. Will our poor time traveler remain stuck in 1972 with his nine-year-old father? And if so, what will he think of disco, and … ? ENOUGH ALREADY! Sorry. I was just doing my job. Stupid narrator.

Image Number: 107213
Caption: Where could my time machine have gone?! I mean, c'mon … we've looked everywhere! Rumble rumble. VROOOOMM. Everywhere except the back of that truck. That looked like the two guys from "American Pickers." American what? I forgot, this is 1972. Reality TV hasn't been invented yet. WE have a real TV!

Image Number: 107212
Caption: How could you just stand there and let my time machine roll down the hill?! This really long hill! With no end in sight. I'm doomed … stuck here in 1972!! I'm sure it's safe … somewhere … maybe. Lookie here! An ol' hay bailer. Should fetch at least five dollars down at the scrap yard.

Caption: April 16, 1972. Ya know, dad, it's actually your fault that I'm here! We have to change the future to prevent me from traveling back in time to now! So do me a favor. In forty-two years don’t let me "borrow" your tools without your knowledge to build this stupid time machine! I'm such a horrible father. And buy more chocolate milk.

Image Number: 106875
Caption: April 16, 1972. Just so you know, dad, when you grow up, gasoline will cost over three dollars a gallon. If you want to make boat loads of money, invest in Apple … … The computer company, not the fruit. Gee, the future sounds so confusing. Oh, and when your hard drive melts unexpectedly some evening, don't entirely blame me.

Caption: April 16, 1972. So, dad … I mean Don, I'm going to need your help getting back to the year 2014. But … I don’t know anything about time travel stuff. C'mon! You bought a bunch of Einstein and Sagan books for me. Are you sayin' you didn't read ANY of them?!! Well, not for at least forty years ... I think. This really isn't the time for excuses.

Caption: April 16, 1972. Time Machine. So … You're my son from the FUTURE?!! If this is true, then tell me what's gonna happen next year.
