Beetle Bailey Sunday page color proof, April 9, 1972.
We are coming to the end of the “Sarge Dreams” series. This later entry revisits the original gag formula of a pizza-induced fantasy.
The “fat watchers” coming to the rescue in panel #7 is a reference to Weight Watchers, an organization that was founded in 1963 and marketed products and services to people who were trying to shed pounds. It continues to operate in about thirty countries around the world.
In the next few posts we will share some more Beetle Bailey Sunday pages that feature Sarge’s dreams, so stay tooned.
