Saturday Comic

With this strip we finish our sequence from Red and Rover. It’s the Sunday comic. Again, the joke isn’t about bare feet, but the writer captures the 1960s very nicely with Martin, Red’s older brother, showing how you really skateboarded back then. The strip is from June 22 last year.

Continuing with our sequence of strips from Red and Rover, again the joke isn’t about bare feet, but they are just a natural part of a 10-year-old boy in the summer in the 1960s. This comic appeared on June 20 last year.

Here’s the next comic in the sequence of strips from Red and Rover, a strip set in the 1960s. Last week Red couldn’t wait to go barefoot. So now he is outdoors sitting under a tree. Barefooted. They go together. This comic appeared on June 19 last year.

For the next few Saturdays I’ll show a sequence of comics. They’re from Red and Rover, a strip set in the 1960s. The joke isn’t always necessarily about bare feet, but it’s summer, and you’re a kid. So of course you’re barefoot.

This comic appeared on June 18 last year.

In subsequent strips we’ll see that Red is true to his word.

I really like the comic strip Red and Rover. Featuring 10-year-old Red and his dog, Rover, it is set in the 1960s when boys really often did go barefoot all summer long. And that is how Red is often depicted.

The joke in this strip, from last Tuesday, has nothing to do with Red being barefoot. It’s just the first time he has appeared barefoot this year.
