We’ve referenced Whittier’s The Barefoot Boy a couple of times recently, so for today’s comic, let’s see the take of Dennis the Menace on it.

For some reason, this particular comic rather tickles my fancy.

Today’s cartoon fits in with an earlier post of this week, Socially Acceptable. It is from the strip Cornered by Mike Baldwin.

The funny thing is, these days one sees a fair number of people wearing socks with sandals and our eyes and brains have gotten used to it. So it’s turned into pretty much a non-issue. Now if only bare feet would follow the same route.

Our comic for this weekend comes from the feature Out Our Way by J. R. Williams. This one appeared on July 9, 1938.

That was a time when they still remembered the torture of putting shoes back on after having been barefoot for so long.

Our Saturday Comic comes from Monday’s Zits.

It gets at an essential truth about stinky feet. (Hint: it’s not because they are bare.)

I think she’s he’s onto something.

[As vas points out in a comment, the character portrayed is Pasquale, who is a boy. I had just looked at the hair and made an assumption. It's not a strip I read very often.]

Yup. That pretty much nails it. Conform to what we want or we will assault you with a fake hazard.

I found it interesting that when the artist had to depict three runners, he chose to make one of the barefoot.

Our cartoon for this weekend comes from 1941. It was from a feature called “Out Our Way” and was published on June 28.

I do believe it is exaggerating just how dirty a kid’s feet get, though.

Barefoot Boy, the lazy soul,
sneaks to bed with feet like coal.
Mother dashes like a streak
to make the sheets last out the week.
Too late, she hears a gentle snore—
What are Maws and washtubs for?

The Return of the Nitrates?

You may recall that back in February we were introduced to a new set of villians in the Dick Tracy comic strip: Silver Nitrate and his always-barefoot sister Sprocket. Their thing is movie-making scams, hence the names.

Here’s a bit of an update.

For this weekend I present a comic called Barefoot Shoe Blues, from September 15, 2011. From what I can tell, it was a one-off from the blog at GoComics.

Earth Day is this upcoming Tuesday, so I think this cartoon, from Arlo & Janis, is quite appropriate. It is from April 22 (Earth Day), 2009.

I modified it slightly by adding an ellipsis and one word (guess which
one ;-) ).
