    This, I think, is the classic Walden Puddle toon.

    Zonk’ is IN the puddle sharing his hallucination with Mike. Did Mike know he was in the puddle?

    From the look on Mike’s face in the last panel, I don’t think so.

    Love seeing these strips from forty years ago…they sure take me back to my own college days. nostalgic sigh

    The funny thing is, if this was drawn today, the major difference is that Mike would be reading on a Kindle.
    Other then that, pretty much the same!

    I LOVE these old ones! Makes me feel as though I’m in my twenties again!

    The art is already becoming more refined. Background elements appear regularly. Characters have legs. The linework is smoother. It starts to look more like the classic Doonesbury.

    Ir’s analogous to that SpongeBob cartoon where SpongeBob and Patrick are having all kinds of fun in a cardboard box (much to Squidward’s chagrin).
