There are lots of rock-related gags in this comic: Page 2, 4th panel: a sign reading "Buy Zilch's Rock Candy"; another sign reading "Read the Daily Gravel"; a banner reading "Pebble for mayor" / Page 3, 3rd Panel: A sign outside an inn reads "Ye Boulder Inn"; a sign outside a theater reads "Now Playing: 'Rocks In The Head' starring Rocky Hudson, Rocky Marciano" [Rock Hudson was a famous movie star; Rocky Marciano was a heavyweight boxer] / Page 3, 5th Panel: A sign in a record store window reading "Rock Around The Clock with Rock Nelson"; Jughead mentions that they have "rock 'n' rock" music instead of "rock 'n' roll".

Betty agrees. Archie says it's too boring. Jughead says that they were away all day and nothing exciting happened.

Synopsis
Fred has to go on a diet because Little Archie won't go on walks with him anymore. But when he sees three freshly-baked pies out in the woods, he takes them and eats two of them. Ambrose, who was bringing the pies to the gang's pie auction, tries to solve the mystery of who stole the pies. He gets the evidence he needs when he sees Fred hiding the last of the three pies. Little Archie is crushed to discover that his dad might be a pie thief, while Fred tries to replace the stolen pies, all the while repeating his new motto: "You just can't win."

Indexer Notes

This and the following story, "The Shrimp From Outer Space," show Bolling becoming more ambitious in his stories and art, and more willing to explore the relationships of the characters (in this case, Little Archie's relationship with his dad).

Ludwig La Stanza hums the rhythm of the theme from the show "Dragnet" when Ambrose first appears as a detective.
