The real reason for kid strips......

I wish it hadn't happened the way it did but the "Mike gets locked out" arc ended the way I'd expected it would. Instead of Elly reassuring Michael that no one intended for him to end up getting locked out or admitting that maybe he should have a key or something, John made a comment about Mike's nose being out of joint that Lizzie overheard and thought meant that Mike's nose was somehow askew. It thus ended not with a bang or a whimper but with another in a long list of cheap, stupid and juvenile sight-gags foisted on us by the adult child in charge of the strip. This, I think, is why she wanted to have a new child in the strip so badly back in the early nineties. It would seem that even her gushiest fans allowed as how Liz was too old for stuff like that; thus came April and her arrested development and thus came Meredith and Robin. Had the strip continued, we could have looked forward to James Allen taking things far too literally for his own good in the service of a questionable joke.
