** In the comic, "Let the Punishment Fit the Crime" was about a group of townspeople figuring out that the reason their kids were so interested in having a pretend funeral was because they'd learned about the concept of capital punishment and had electrocuted one of their friends for "kidnapping" a little girl's doll.

* NoAnimalsWereHarmed: The original comic of "The Pit!" had the couples running cockfighting and dogfighting rings, with the women bullying their husbands into trying to one-up their rivals. That probably would've been too brutish for modern sensibilities.
