Another Boff from Dog's Life

If you can't make your hat fly off, mebbe you can fly off your seat.

February 9, 1962


  1. The book deletes Porky's last word "yesterday" (and moves the question mark up one line). I guess that's because book readers don't get the experience of being fed one strip per day, so the whole conversation appears to happen in one sitting.

    Also, the larger page format (than was used in the 1950s books) allows more horizontal space, so that (for instance) Beauregard's hat in panel 3 doesn't crowd into Porky's balloon in panel 4.

  2. Him saying "yesterday" is pretty funny though!
