If Alligators represent galactic center, lets take a look at some comic covers and see what's syncing.
Pebbles and Bam-Bam are riding the galactic center while their parents look on. To me, the Flintstones represent not the past but a future where technology is scarce, and people use their ingenuity to get by. Like using a Woolly Mammoth for a shower head.
At the dawning of the Age of Aquarius, Hope stands in the galactic center, comforting a panicked damsel in distress.
Goofy and Mickey search for the treasure of El Dorado while Donald plays "My Pet Goat". The three little pigs turn the table on the big bad wolf.
Foodini's magic can not stop the approach to the galactic center, nor can it stop the Age of Aquarius.
The birds fly oblivious into the galactic center while Maturin looks on.
