Beetle Bailey Sunday page digital proof, April 4, 1997.

In last week’s post we documented the original “Sarge Dreams” series that ran between 1964 and 1974.  Since that time we have revisited this theme on numerous occasions.  The episode above was inspired by some of the classic horror films of my youth.

Timeline – 1996 Part 4

Beetle Bailey Sunday page digital proof, November 3, 1996.

Between 1964 and 1974, a series of seventeen Sunday pages featured Sarge’s fantastic dreams.  Most of these episodes involved Sarge falling asleep after eating too much pizza and having fantasies about being a superhero, playing professional sports, traveling back in time or other such hilarious scenarios.
