Where does the expression “jelly-bread sandwich” come from? I’ve had peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, cream cheese and jelly sandwiches, and plain old jelly sandwiches, but Peanuts is the only place where I’ve heard this expression.
I’ve read that, in WWII, Clark was rejected for military service because of poor eyesight — he accidentally used his X-ray vision and read a different eye chart in the next room!
Close to one version of the story. Not magic, but hypnotism. In one story from the 70s, Clark begins wondering how he’s been getting away with such a simple disguise for so long (and he reminds himself that he came up with the idea when he was a kid).

The Comics Kingdom website has several vintage strips (including Popeye). One I’ve been following is a series of Snuffy Smith comics from WWII that are horribly racist in their depiction of the Japanese. But of course we were at war and they were the enemy. What bothers me is that, prior to a website redesign, those vintage comics were published with their original publication dates. This let me place them in an appropriate historical context. Those dates have been removed and, although I’ve contacted them a couple of times about it, they haven’t restored them yet.
