Hurt that everyone in town considers him a freak for his huge appetite, Jughead decides to go on a diet. As soon as he stops eating, he becomes stupid, endangering his ability to win the inter-city scholarship trophy for the school. Miss Grundy realizes why Jughead never got fat: his body converts food into brain power instead of flab, and when he's not eating, he's not smart.

Indexer Notes

An example of Schwartz's use of unusual layouts: instead of conventional panels, the page is an overlapping mix of oddly-shaped panels and characters in open white spaces.

Indexer Notes

This story was re-made, almost word for word, from the story "Inventin' We Will Go" in "Archie's Pal Jughead" #4 (February, 1951). The story was re-made again, almost word for word, 10 years later in "That Wilkin Boy" # 9 (September 1970), with Bingo's Uncle Herman replacing Jughead's and Bingo Wilkin replacing Jughead.

Indexer Notes

Script identifiable as Frank Doyle by his writing style.

The first page is another example of Schwartz's experiments with layout: he uses a smaller-than-usual splash panel surrounded by characters floating in an almost panel-free space, with only a few visual cues for us to understand what sequence the drawings are supposed to be in.
