    At 1st glance thought I was looking at a Popeye coming strip featuring Olive Oyl and Wimpy.

    Olive Oyl was my first thought as well. But Rita dresses much better.

    With a touch of W.C. Fields

    I actually thought it was Olive Oyle and Wimpy until I got the enlarged version and could see and read the dialogue. Love the Dictaphone……….I used to transcribe the old sleeve type back in the 60’s……..also used a plug type switchboard ah…….some good memories some not so good. lol

    @Jean

    the “Dictabelt” also was sold as the “Memobelt”, introduced in 1947 they were red until 1964 then they changed to blue, then purple from 1975 to 1980. In 1974 Dictaphone introduced a magnetic sheet but I can’t find the brand name of those.

    @RuthTC

    He’s been Roy Hobbs since Hogar started the strip in 1912, so it couldn’t be that. John once tried to rename him Roy Rivers when Kyle was drawing the strip, but the new name didn’t stick.

    Roy would do well as Wimpy. “I would gladly pay you Tuesday for a hamburger today.”

    Roy’s personality seems to be intact from this early version to what it is today. Great line, Roy.

    Yes, the earlier Roy was more of a milquetoast. Without the technology angle, he was a bookkeeper. Now he had a function that gave him some power over the other employees- but full blown geekdom was a long way off.

    In Working Daze that would be Dana, and she knew how to use it. Malcolm didn’t provide any samples of Dowser’s strips with Dana. Next week we’ll see Jay.
