Snuffy’s Maw

In honor of Mother’s Day being this Sunday, May 11th, I thought I share a bit about Snuffy’s mother. She first appeared in the Barney Google and Snuffy Smith comic strip in 1948. Most of the time she is referred to as simply Maw or Snuffy’s Maw, but her real name is Meddlin Smif. Snuffy is her pride and joy and she thinks he does nothing wrong, but, on the other hand, she thinks Loweezy does nothing right!  She was created by the legendary cartoonist, Fred Lasswell. When she showed up, the strips were very funny and memorable, in my opinion..

Easter an’ th’ Parson…

Since Easter Sunday is this coming Sunday, I thought I’d share a few Sunday Pages from years past that feature Hootin’ Holler’s resident minister, Parson Tuttle. All three of these strips either ran on Easter Sunday or around Easter Sunday. I hope you enjoy this look back…and Happy Easter!

This ran on April,

This ran on April 24, 2011.  I really enjoy the comic strips where the Parson asks or gets asked questions by the children in Hootin’ Holler.
