Comics and music

A Get Fuzzy cartoon, passed on by Billy Green on Facebook:


Two forms of name play here: a POP (phrasal overlap portmanteau) combining the artist formerly known as Prince (the musician) and Prince Valiant (the comics character); and then a play on the naming formula X and the Y(s) for musical groups (Prince and the Revolution, etc.), giving the groanworthy  O.J. and the Simpsons (combining O.J. Simpson and the Simpsons animated cartoon). Again, huge amounts of sociocultural knowledge required.
