Lucy’s weight gain plan, try it today, or your money back, 5 cents of course! Also, I remember this plot being used for “I Want A Dog for Christmas, Charlie Brown”
yep, Spike looks as bloated as a tin can of Swedish surströmming
O…. M…. G…. that’s not a dog but a christmas ball….
This is another strip I have a very strong physical memory of reading as a child. I still can’t look at that last panel without laughing.
Spike looks a snowman!
Spike looks like he swallowed a basketball.
No longer looks like a spike, but still spike
Round is a shape :)
Spike: Whelp i’m chubby now. Not a bad life. SeriouslY I just love his expression in this early arc, just wide eyed and adorable. I don’t mind his later half lidded loook, it suits him better, but sometimes a characters look before the artist really has them down can still be neat, like the earlier more realistic looking garfield, marigolds lankier apperance in early phoebe and her unicorn, and in non comic strip terms, Daredevils yellow outfit I love but most people laugh at for some reason.
The charming nurse, Lucy.
I wonder if that gave Mr. Schulz the inspiration for Snoopy’s other brother, Olaf…
Well round is a shape!
I think Spike may have a little too much.
Get him a wheelbarrow
Until, he sees the cat next door and he’ll lose it all, in seconds!
Spike looks as if he is full up to his eyeballs!
It may be in to be thin, but fat is where it’s at!
It’s not like he had a high life expectancy before when he was just a twig.
She turned him into Olaf!
Poor Spike now looks like MY poor tubby dogs.:(
Now he looks like Olaf!
Round IS a shape.
Round IS a shape, so she has a point.
Not too bad….
Swallowed a basketball?
Looks like Spike discovered fast food.
Now, the coyotes are going to eat him,
This foreshadows the appearance of brother Olaf
Spikes even fatter than Snoopy and the same weight (probably) as Olaf (one of Snoopy’s brothers in case you don’t know)
