For those wondering why I thought it was so odd that Ethel was a cheerleader in the Archie titles now, here’s what she used to look like, back when she was Big Ethel.
Buck teeth, messy hair, cross eyes, gawky broomstick figure. And check out that chin!
Both of these were from Archie’s Joke Book #90, June 1963. It’s full of single-page strips showing teenage life in full bloom with transistor radios, beach dates, and TV and record and slumber parties.
I don’t know who Clarence was, or if he ever appeared again. But he’s not the only wacky one-shot type — meet Hal (from Archie’s Joke Book #97, February 1966).
