Nothing like a good Harvey comic, chock full of wholesome, innocent childhood fun. Right?
Except for this Playful Little Audrey story which apparently involves Audrey and a rousing neighborhood game of "international drug smuggler."
Ha, fooled you, it's just an innocent game of "cook potatoes in the campfire". Apparently in the Harvey world, potatoes are a beloved childhood delicacy to be enjoyed in the great outdoors.
Only trouble is, if "Big-Nose Melvin" finds out, he'll steal those potatoes, and their potato-related fun will then be over.
Harvey Comics - exploring the desperate hunger for companionship that drives the hopelessly neurotic! And potatoes.
I include this sequence mostly because this exact thing happened to me when I was a kid, and nobody believed me when I told them. Do you know how DAMAGING that is to impressionable young psyches?
Leave it to Audrey to come up with a stupidly over-complicated potato-preserving plan. I would point out that her plan requires Lucretia to do all the work, so maybe it's not that stupid after all.
And YOU thought that this story involving children and fires and forests would wind up without there being a forest fire! Think again, sucker.
I don't know if Harvey intended this sequence involving a crazed fire-starting maniac menacing two little girls in the midst of a forest fire to be quite as creepy as it turned out, but let's face it - it's creepy no matter how you slice it.
MOTHER OF GOD IS THIS THE END OF PLAYFUL LITTLE AUDREY??
Whew, saved by state troopers! And all that's left is the moral. Remember kids, we know you're going to start fires in the woods... Just put them out, okay? Also, and I can't stress this highly enough - don't eat food you find lying around in the woods. MELVIN.
