    Awww! Carolina’s skirts have gotten LONGER!

    Really now, is that fair?

    P. S. – I Love Andrew’s ’fro, and am glad he kept the ’stache and beard. Some things SHOULD be forever.

    “Keep some things to herself” like be able to insult them in Spanish without their knowing?

    @DAZZ

    Maybe. It’s typical of a kind of smart-alecky humor that was popular at the time.

    Has Melvin lost some weight? Love the uni-brow. If Carolina bent over in that dress, we’d all get a look at the full moon. Oy, that’s short, even for the sixties.

    Carolina looks so beautiful with the lipgloss and eyeshadow!

    This is from half a century ago- so if Melvin appears any slimmer here, then it’s the other way around and he’s gained weight.

    Happens in Hollywood. The new studio boss kills projects already in the works, because they were started under the old regime.

    Personally, I don’t favor the outlined lips approach. Wait’ll you see the strip in the 80’s though! Tony Boone, who drew WD from ’84 to ’86 did LIPS! Oy.

    One of my favorite strips growing up was Lolly, by Pete Hansen… I salute you, Scott!

    Once again, all the credit for these Sunday’s goes to Scott. He has a vast knowledge of the history of cartooning.

    Lolly! I enjoyed that strip, even though I was seldom able to read it since it wasn’t in the local papers.
    I agree with Leo above – I really like Andrew with the afro! Great leering by Melvin and Sal. I’ll keep my comments on Carolina to myself.
    I have really been enjoying the Sunday strips – kudos to TSR!

    Carolina must now be relying more on her brains than on her legs.

    The legend is that “Beverly Hillbillies,” “Green Acres,’ ’Mayberry RFD” and all similar shows were purged because the networks suddenly wanted to kill the entire rural genre and go urban. There’s a tale of a network chief’s wife being embarrassed by a remark at party about these shows. Most were doing very well in the ratings.

    @katina.cooper

    She usually does. The micro mini was popular at the time, and of course the strip was exaggerating it. But I wouldn’t call her retort here a matter of relying on her legs. More like “I’ll wear what I want and you losers can keep it to yourselves.”
