Foot Backwards?

Okay, I suppose there's no hard fast rules to what a potato's foot should look like. But, I still have to wonder about something that involves the original Mr. Potato Head. Okay, take a look at the first pic below. Those were the shoes for the original Mr. Potato Head. Now, there is a long end and a short end to his foot. Thus, it would stand to reason that the long end faces the front, right?

Of course.

Yet, almost all commercial pictures of this vintage Potato Head showed the short end of his feet in the front and the long end in the back! That's right. Just check out the picture on the box below.

Oh, well, if they say his shoes go on like that, so be it. Doesn't really matter anyway.

"Oh, yeah!? You ever try walking with your feet on backwards!!?"
