Guess who's coming out of the Penguin Hall Closet?

Sherman, set the Way Back Machine for 1996- a kinder, gentler time. A time before PDAs and the internet made bringing up local radar so easy. Remember way back, when we all were so dependent on that guardian of the green screen, that defender of the Doppler, the weatherman? Yes, return with us now, to those thrilling days of "The Adventures of Timmy Toggle- Ace Meteorologist!"
(Editor: "Timmy Toggle" was created in April of 1996 as a response to a Chicago magazine's survey of local TV talent. Alert readers will no doubt recognize a certain resemblance to a popular weatherman and his network cohorts. A copy of the original comic was presented to the original character then, but no response ensued. The Penguin Hall Monitor is re-issuing it now, with a spirit of humor and homage, and hopes the Gentle Reader will enjoy this stroll through simpler times.)
