Saturday Comic

Last weeks cartoon took a contemporary look at the “problem” of going back to school after having spent the summer barefoot. Here’s a much older cartoon doing the same thing. It’s from a feature called “All in a Lifetime” by Frank Beck and is dated September 6, 1939.

Saturday Comic

Today’s cartoon is from Red and Rover, a strip set more or less in the 1960s, when a lot more kids spent their entire summers barefoot.

This was a common problem (and yes, in the comic strip, Red really has spent his entire summer barefoot). Additionally, with the reference to Hawaii, I wonder if the cartoonist sometimes listens in to barefooters’ discussions.
