Susanne, you got it right!!

The record for the longest running comic strip is held by the "Katzenjammer kids". The adventures of Hans & Fritz appeared for the first time in the New York Journal on December 12, 1897 and is still running in news papers and comic books today!!

When we were kids we used to love reading that comic strip - it was a family favourite. I seem to remember hearing that it was the longest running strip on the car radio while driving into work (just recently as a matter of fact).

I know "Blondie" began in the '20s & Blondie was a flapper, but does anyone know when "Life with Father" & "Moon Mullins" started? I also liked the "Toonerville Trolley".

I loved Bloom County :mad:

I can't think of the name of it right now but I loved the comic with the little bratty boy with scruffy hair that was always doing really bratty things.

Wow, that sounds like a lot of the comic strips. :D

for some reason the Katzenjammer Kids scared me :mad: , and so did Jiggs in Life with Father. i liked the Little King, and used to loooove the Tumbleweeds cartoon strip. in my teens i papered a room with Tumbleweeds strips.

POGO is stellar! it's in a league of its own.

Get Fuzzy and Sylvia are current happifiers.

My all-time favorite will always be Pogo.
Absolutely! "We have met the enemy, and he is us!" And I think I sang "Deck Us All With Boston Charlie" here once. Pogo & Asterix were my two favorite comic strips when I was at university. My favorite political cartoonist after Herb Block was one of our college classmates, Don Addis.
