In the days before flat screens.
Remember the "console" TV? Back in the day, it was the creme de la creme of television viewing. In essence, a big wooden box to house your picture tube instead of setting it directly on the floor. Who decided these were optimum viewing conditions? It certainly made lying on the shag rug, watching Saturday morning cartoons more fun. Anyway, I've always like this strip for the way the poor little black-and-white bites it in the third panel (click on the strip to really soak in the carnage).
