Snuffy’s Maw Visits!

Share

Snuffy’s Maw from a one-day visit back in August.

Snuffy’s maw, Miz Meddlin Smith from over the ridge somewhere, visits the strip from time to time. She enjoys seeing the young-uns, Jughaid and Tater, and her son, Snuffy.   Does she enjoy seeing Loweezy?  Not so much!  Usually her visits are one day here and there.  But she will be here for an extended six-day visit from October 9th to October 14th. It should be a fun time!  Be sure to check it out!

Seeing Snuffy When I Travel!!

It is always fun to see Snuffy on the newspaper comics pages when I am traveling!

It is always great to see my Snuffy Smith comic strip out in the world when I am traveling!  On a recent road trip to Missouri, I purchased a few local newspapers along the way. It gives me a wonderful feeling to open up to the comics page and see Snuffy looking back at me!   It always makes me smile!  A big bodacious heartfelt thank you to the Beckley, West Virginia Register-Herald and the Evansville, Indiana Courier & Press newspapers (shown above) for carrying my work on their comics page!  I truly do appreciate it!

Bodacious Thanks To Marceline, Missouri–Walt Disney’s Hometown!!

Main Street USA in Marceline, Missouri.

Walt Disney once said, “To tell the truth, more things of importance happened to me in Marceline than have happened since–or are likely to in the future.”

This past weekend I was bodaciously blessed to be in the wonderfully quaint town of Marceline, Missouri for Walt Disney’s Hometown Toonfest.  I have been a huge Walt Disney fan my entire life and I was deeply honored and touched to be asked to attend as a Guest Cartoonist, along with Barbara Dale, Mike and Patty Peraza and John Glynn.  All five of us gave individual presentations about cartooning; served as grand marshals in a parade down Marceline’s Main Street USA; received career awards for our contributions to cartooning; had the incredible honor of planting a tree near Walt Disney’s famous Dreaming Tree on the Disney Farm; toured Walt Disney Hometown Museum and the town of Marceline; drew on the walls of Disney’s Barn and the Toonfest office; and had samples of our work displayed in an international cartoon art show.  But most importantly, we met some of the kindest, most warm, wonderful, Disney-loving people in the entire world!
