New-run Phil: Is he the same as Old-Run Phil?

As you may or may not know, the current set of strips are the lead-in to Phil Richards' arrival in the Foobiverse. In this, his first major plotline, he eventually saves the family from Elly's desire to emulate the irritating supermom next door and bring her back into living in the middle of the road like regular people. The reason his arrival is such an interesting thing is that back in the real Early Years, he was more or less the fifth Patterson. His falling in and out of love with Connie Poirier, his settling down with Georgia and his career as a music teacher had as much space as John being a jackass, Mike being a nitwit, Elly shrieking, Lizzie whining and Farley widdling on the carpet. The thing to watch for is to see if Lynn takes the time to address adult concerns in the New-Runs and shows us any of this. I hope to see more of him but fear he'll be reduced to a walk-on so we can see Farley pooping or Mike being a moron.
