See Snuffy On Yore Summer Vacation!


My nephew, Christian, and niece, Sydney, pose with Snuffy Smith’s dog, Ol’ Bullet at the Comic Strip Dog Fountain.  This fountain is located in the Toon Lagoon section of Universal Studios Islands Of Adventure Theme Park.  It features statues of many famous comic strip dogs!

The state of Florida is one of the most popular summer vacation destinations! If you happen to be visiting Orlando, Florida on your vacation this year, stop by Universal Studios Islands Of Adventure Theme Park and say “howdy” to Snuffy Smith and family! They are featured, along with many of your other favorite comic strip characters, in the Toon Lagoon section of the theme park.  You can find them in The Comic Strip Cafe, the Comic Strip Dog Fountain and on a large display panel in the center of the Toon Lagoon area.  My brother, Mike and his wife, Amy recently took their children on a family vacation to Universal and sent me these cute photos!

!968 Snuffy Smith Sales Kit!

The fun cover of the sales kit brochure.

A bodacious recent eBay find of mine is this 1968 Snuffy Smith Sales Brochure!  It would have been part of a sales kit that King Features Syndicate mailed out to newspapers or gave to newspaper editors personally in 1968 to encourage them to purchase the comic strip.

Snuffy Celebrates Independence Day

I love creating comic strips with a holiday theme.  I had a lot of great reader feedback on the Snuffy Smith comic strip above which ran earlier this week on July 4, 2017.  It shows Snuffy and Loweezy celebrating Indepen-dance Day at a Fourth Of July Barn Dance.  All the comments I received were positive and everyone seemed to really enjoy this strip!  So that got me to thinking it would be fun to look back at some Snuffy Smith comic strips from Independence Days past…
