Beetle Bailey (Vol. 1)

 BEB1   (Charlton, 1953-1980)

ô and ©1976 King Features Syndicate
Series numbering continued from appearances in Four Color Comics; Early issues by Dell, King

Mort Walkerís bumbling G.I. Beetle Bailey was long a favorite of the newspaper comics pages. After making several appearances in Dellís Four Color Comics, he received this, his first self-titled comic book series, in 1962. The title then ran through numerous publishers during its eighteen-year run, finally concluding in 1980.

Beetle Bailey is one of the most enduring (and lighthearted) strips to base its humor on the foibles of army life. Beetle, a layabout private, is constantly running into trouble and getting called on the carpet by blowhard Sergeant Snorkel. The hijinks continue up the chain of command, culminating with General Halftrack, a lecherous Army lifer whose lifetime ogling of his nubile assistant was all good fun for the 1960s. In the politically correct 1990s, however, it would spark a feminist protest on the grounds that the cartoon made light of sexual harassment.
