    Business casual means it has no rips, stains, or cut-outs. That will be formal wear next year based on what I see at work.

    Rita kinda looks like she’s related to Beetle Baily. Plus, they had drones back in the 50’s

    Some of the women look like they came out of Hi and Lois, also that comic strip where a woman worked in an office where the boss had a drunken playboy son who worked there, and she had a poodle. I forget the name of the strip.

    At this point in time, Roy looks like a loud-mouth, judging by his depiction in the two panels. He’s not really a loud-mouth now, though. He’s a geek who’s sure he knows more than most, but doesn’t usually flaunt it in an overt manner.

    Really cool history, guys. Looking forward to next week.

    I was thinking the same thing about the Hi and Lois look, esp. the women. The blonde running from the shake machine definitely looks like Lois.

    I always got a kick out of reading stories about Casual Friday. Most of the time, what they called casual was far spiffier than I ever wore to my engineering job.

    I believe the strip you’re thinking of was “Lolly,” which was part of the Chicago Tribune syndicate’s roster of strips.

    Next week is the 60s? Then the following week should be when we see “WD” imitating “Doonesbury” and “Bloom County.”

    Nice lipgloss Rita!

    As I recall, the early 60s were relatively slow compared to the middle to late 60s.

    You mean Dana?

    The early 60’s were a carryover of the 50’s, and the early 70’s were a remnant of the late 60’s. The tempo of the decades was changing in the middle, not at the rollover of the zeroes.

    Ah, Sue is back again. Sue is always distinctive with her large earrings, although in the “modern” strips her earrings are always green, as I recall.

    It’s nice also to see CJ having an important role in these historic strips. I’m betting that she will be more prominent over the next few decades, with the emphasis on youth in the media and advertising.

    @WF11

    CJ shows up more now than at any time since Dick Rhodes drew the strip- and he was essentially reviving the character after Lou Lund kind of overlooked her. Having looked ahead myself, I can tell you that some other major characters are about to take their first bows in the 60’s and 70’s.

    Roy’s looking a little Peter Griffinish.

    @Ather

    Place them side by side, you’ll find them less so. Peter has hair, is much fatter, has a cleft chin, a tiny ear way higher on his head, and a smaller nose. What they have in common in is the abstract, bigfoot drawing style.
