: Lunchbox
Jan 15, 2007

Back in the early 1900’s people started carrying their lunches to work in old tobacco tins. This gave way to the invention of the old metal lunchboxes which would go on to be a standard for school kids complete with their favorite characters lithographed onto them. Better the kids carrying lunch than tobacco. But the great thing about them, is you can keep all sorts of cool stuff in them, I’m sure Wally will keep his around, and hopefully find something else to keep in it besides Osborne.

There is a purpose to today’s comic. Today an all new all-ages webcomic collective called Lunchbox Funnies launched and Wally & Osborne are a part of it! You can read the full scoop here at Newsarama.

Fellow Lunchbox Funnies member Ryan Sias did a “lunchbox” comic at his Silent Kimbly today, so I just had to do one too.

And with that I leave you with dancing Osborne again. The one made at the site I found through another Lunchbox Funnies member, Dave Roman, who does Astronaut Elementary.

    Osborne must be really squished in there. 😉 Wally took Osborne’s lunch. 😉 I wonder what kind of sandwich it is?
    It’d be cool to have a Wally and Osborne Lunchbox! 😀

    ahhh poor Osbourne Wallt is just so mean, but the lunch box does look kind of sweet what with all the feathers (are they feathers or do penguins have another skin covering?) sticking out, and Wally looks so innocent and adorable sorry for being mushy.

  9. i thought he ate osbourne

  10. that was pretty stupid of me

  11. poor osborne!!! the little guy has been crammed into an even littler lunchbox!!! and then his awesome snacks were cruelly taken away. can his day get any worse? of course, he did provoke wally….but it still must hurt!!!! c u l8r-Sarah

  12. SportyBlonde! says:

    I like their feet

  13. some guy says:

    I definitely thought he ate Osborne too. It looks like there is some blood trickling down the side of his mouth, and I didn’t notice the cookie at first.

  14. Penguin Guru says:

    Yah, I thought he ate Osborne too! Then i saw the feathers sticking out of the j\lunch box. Wyrdo! Of coarse penguins have feathers! They’re birds! Wally did Osborne a faver. Osborne can’t eat with a beak. But he didn’t do him a favor by sticking him in a lunch box! Nice comic Tyler! Hope yoe”re felling better!

  15. Kevin Wilson says:

    I don’t recall metal lunch boxes being around in Australia when I was a kid at school, but the Tupperware ones I used to use did come in handy when I finally left.

    Oh, and a sandwich left in one over summer holidays never ended up as fresh as the Tupperware propaganda would have led you to believe.

  16. Lizz says:

    Haha, deze is echt wel een goeie! Het was al een tijdje geleden, maar ik moest toch wel ff hard lachen!

  17. penguin Luvr 20 (kayla) says:

  21. Penguin Boy says:

    Nice video Tyler,Osborne’s got some groovy moves!

  22. BriaN says:

    I do think it would be somewhat entertaining to see kids with Wally and Osborne lunch boxes, I’m not sure how well they would sell but it’d be kind of nifty.

  23. Cristina says:

    i made a video, it was hard to make it look decent, tyler obvoiosly has a lot more experience then i do.

  24. Cheetahfox says:

    Great comic! Osborne in the middle panel reminds me of my brother.

    How long is that video? I watched it for 15 minutes and it showed no signs of stopping! It’s cute, though 🙂

  25. penguin Luvr 20 says:

    who says “nifty”????
    anyway, where do u go 2 make one of those videos??????????
    i wanna know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    thats my website. got to it. post in the message boards to tell me what ya think!

  26. im kinda glad they didnt show how Wally stuffed Osborne into the lunchbox that wouldve been a bit too graphic and disturbing too. 😆

  27. Lee says:

    Penguins have feathers. I guess they’re quite slick and oily because of their waterproofing.

  28. Penguin Guru says:

    Osborne looks so cute in the middle panel!

  29. other says:

    the video never ends it just runs in a loop

  30. Sheena says:

    Ha!! Mean little Osborne got shoved into a littler lunchbox!! 🙂

  31. BriGuy says:

    Osborne must be more cramped then he was when he was in the polar bear house with Wally.

  32. Sheena says:

    hi! osborne must be really squished in there. i think he doesnt know when to shut up. :mrgreen:

  35. penguinluvr20 says:

    yo :mrgreen:

  36. Hannah says:

    hey people
    i thought he ate osborne also
    then i looked at it hard enough and long enough
    and i realized he just stuffed him in the lunch box
    and swiped his sandwich.
    it must have been painful for osborne to be stuffed in such a small box
    he must feel like wally did when he was in the box.

  37. thomas says:

    do you live in okc?

  38. izzieluv says:

    I want a wallpaper of the last frame LOL

  39. Oh my gosh.
    For like, 4 comics “Ozzie” has said “You should put something in it” or so, and he always gets shoved in it.:P

  40. Tre says:

    Oz is a real meanie when it comes down to the mean comments he gives W,but I just think it’s because O doesn’t know better. After all, he is an animal too, isn’t he?

  41. Jenny says:

    Poor Osbourne.
