Back to School - Let's Be Careful Out There


These important safety tips come courtesy of the 1960 Dell Giant comic Walt Disney's Huey, Dewey and Louie Back to School.

For a number of years in the late 1950s/early 1960s, Donald's nephews participated in this annual four color tradition that demonstrated at least to some degree that comic books and school could share some common ground. This school safety rules illustration appeared on the issue's inside front cover. I never realized just how serious a problem playground holes were back then.

I particularly enjoy their helpful tip to remove *knives* from clothing before playing...

I agree Jeff. I never knew that holes proved a problem on our nation's playgrounds.
