Beetle Bailey Sunday page color proof, September 20, 1959.
In this vintage Sunday page from 1959, Sarge’s dog Otto has a starring role. Mort Walker loves to feature visual humor in Beetle Bailey and Otto’s determined car chasing provides some great action scenes. Otto was still wearing a basic dog shirt with sergeant stripes at this point in his development.
In the next post we will show how Otto changed his apparel and persona in the 1960s.
