I started out life as a "Stampy", a rabbit so plain ...
A gerbil transformer, oh yeah!

It's nice to see the old 1/0 gang again, and sweet of you to intervene, but this still seems like a disservice. The entire point of 1/0's ending was to try and give the characters an unbounded, independent existence, since having a cartoonist be present to watch is only a stopgap solution.
The only kind of permanent existence for a cartoon character is an implied existence, the kind that happens between the panels or when the camera's somewhere else, because they can't not run out of concrete existence. All comics end. (I expect characters could try to have the strip's production automated, or go on the lam and jump from comic to comic.) 1/0 did what it could by kicking the cast out of the comic and into the implied, where they would not be afflicted by the absolute end of the concrete. Going and looking is nice, but kind of brings cast back to Square One.
Geez, the troubles of self-aware fiction. My first attempt tried to attack me.
Oh well: the strip pointed out that a character is information, and can exist in multiple places, so a new instance can't harm the whole and may do some good. It'd still upset Manny. Many things do.
