Default OT: How Many Of These Have You Seen In The Funnies (comics)

How about comic strips in the neswpapers in the good old days? How many do you remember reading?

Not in any particular order: Smiling Jack, Alley Oop, Joe Palooka, Jungle Jim,
Terry and the Pirates, Toonerville Trolley, Gasoline Alley, Mutt and Jeff, Lil Abner, Katzenjammer Kids, The Captain and the Kids (clone), Orphan Annie, Little Annie Roomey (another clone), Smokey Stover, The Little Hitchiker, Dick Tracy, Phantom, Mary Worth and Barney Google.

Do these bring back any memorier and can you think of some more?

Oh God yes...my parents worked 2-3 jobs at any given time and my "dad" time was reading the sunday comics together..he tells me when he was potty training me we would read the comics while I was sitting on my own "potty"...When I was blessed to have my own son that's how I started him reading and I am proud to say he has passed on the "tradition" with his son

My Dad taught me to read the comic page first, because I would find out what was going on in the world, read the obituaries next to find out people's accomplisments, the sports section next to discover man's victories and failures and the front page last to find out how poorly man treats his fellow inhabitors on earth

My favorite comic Archie and Sad Sack

Venice - my dh must have been potty trained that way as well - he still reads the funnies on his own special potty lol.

Prince Valiant is the one "comic" strip I could never quite grasp

Don't remember most of those, but I do believe in Venice's dad's philosophy of reading the comics page first!
One of my old favourites, Calvin and Hobbes, which was discontinued a few years back, is making a limited run comeback in the Montreal Gazette, and I am enjoying it all over again. My new favourite is Get Fuzzy, with Bucky the cat and Satchel the dog.
I don't know how many of you get the Canadian comic "For Better or For Worse" in the U.S. but in my mind, it's the best thing out there today.

Donna - the guy that does the "Get Fuzzy" must really own a cat and a dog - I think he reads their minds lol.

For Better or For Worse is one of my all time favorites ... understand she's not going to be doing it much longer. Some other oldies Andy Gump, Popeye, etc.

They're rerunning Calvin and Hobbes down here, too ... Tampa Bay area in the St. Pete Times.
