Saturday Comic

In all the time I’ve been doing these Saturday Comics, I have not repeated one. However, since today is Earth Day, I think this one deserves repeating.

It’s the 1971 Earth Day poster from Walt Kelly. (Needed now more than ever.)

Oops. I forgot to put out a comic yesterday. Well, let’s just call this late-Saturday. Very-late-Saturday.

This strip is from August 2, 2004, and features an old stand-by, Red and Rover. Set in the 1960s, Red goes barefoot most of the summer.

If Popsicle Pete gets “popsicle toes”, I bet he drives the truck barefoot (which, of course, is completely legal).

Today lets go with a strip from Frank and Ernest, which was started by Bob Thaves and is currently drawn by his son, Tom. This appeared last November 17.

Aside from the comic getting the way to ride a skateboard “anatomically correct”, I think by doing so it is showing more “enlightenment” than the author intended.

Saturday Comic — April Fool

So, I hope you noticed that, for the first time, today’s barefoot Saturday Comic didn’t feature anything barefoot.

Check the date.

It was still a pretty good comic, though, wasn’t it? (And maybe even a bit relevant to barefooting.)

For some reason, about half the time Sam & Silo has their “barefoot” character wearing shoes, and I’ve never figured that out. However, their strip published today did have a good-old barefoot Floyd (what great timing). And here it is:

Actually, from what I can tell, the improved circulation from going barefoot helps prevent blue lines.

Here’s our comic for today, published February 4th of this year. It’s from Sam & Silo, featuring Floyd, officially described as “a wild man given to spouting incoherent poetry, walking around barefoot, or carrying odd protest signs.”

Just like last week, today I have a comic from “All in a Lifetime” by Beck. This one is dated April 7, 1947. It does illustrate how ubiquitous it was for kids to go barefoot all summer long.

That kind of quilt-washing has also died out. But, unlike barefooting, at least there’s a good excuse for that.

Here’s a comic from April 23, 1948. It comes from “All in a Lifetime” by Beck. This strip, looking at “olden” times, has done quite a few barefoot comics. This is the sixth one of them I’ve shown.

Pretty obviously, dirty feet have been an issue with mothers for a long time.
