In the first frame, Gooby stands happily with his hat. In frame two, he spots another hat, which he takes. In frame three he stands joyously with his second hat. In the fourth frame his hat is taken off his head by Gooby in frame two, providing a comedic element due to the juxtaposition of their frames, allowing Gooby in frame two to reach down and take the hat from the ground, which is the air above the Gooby from frame four. Gooby stands in shock in panel five, and in panel six he laments his lost pleasure, reflecting on the transient nature of pleasure and giving a political commentary on the trends for people to take financial loans, the “Future hat”, for a temporary pleasure, only to have the hat taken away from them by their past self, leaving them with less than they had grown accustomed to. It also shows the human nature of acclimating to better circumstances, and even when returned to the same circumstance, they are still left feeling they have lost something.
