Punch or The London Charivari, was an old famous illustrated magazine of humour, which was founded by journalists Henry Mayhew, Joseph Stirling Coyne, and Mark Lemon in 1841. Punch Among the Planets was taken from the Christmas edition of 1890 magazine. "The Old Year was fast nearing its close, the night was clear and starry, and Father Time, from the top of his observatory tower, was taking a last look round. To him entered, unannounced save by the staccato yap of the faithful Tobias, Time's unfailing friend, unerring Mentor, and immortal contemporary, Mr. Punch."I am not for an age, but for All Time," freely quoted the Swan's sole parallel. "And very much at Time's service," he added, throwing open his fur-lined "Immensikoff," and lighting a cigar at the Scythe-bearer's lantern."
