Timeline – 2001 Part 1

Beetle Bailey Sunday page digital proof, February 11, 2001.

Beetle gets some news from home in the Sunday page above.  His mother tells him about an ice storm that has downed wires and trees.  His father is also having problems with his job. Interestingly, this is the only reference I know to the Bailey family’s dog, Speedy.

Timeline – 1996 Part 3

Beetle Bailey Sunday page digital proof, September 15, 1996.

The episode above features Beetle’s parents who are rarely seen in the strip.  When they do appear, they are often shown reading a letter that Beetle sends home from Camp Swampy.  Here that formula is reversed.  Beetle’s life gives his father a long-distance headache.
