The episode above, from November 22, 1956, appeared in newspapers five weeks after the launch of the Hi and Lois Sunday page. Hi is playing golf with his boss, Mr. Foofram, who doesn’t like losing to his lowly employee
Foofram’s backstory is chronicled in this previous post.
A month later, Hi asked Mr. Foofram for a bonus. Lois’ plan to make him get a new suit backfires.
This Sunday page is black-and-white because we don’t have a color proof in our archives. We do have many other full color ones to share, so be sure to check back.
