Snuffy’s Paw!

Some characters I have brought back to the comic strip after very long absences are: Barney Google (top left), Snuffy’s Maw (top right), Bizzy Buzz Buzz (bottom left) and Granny Creeps (bottom right).

Over the many years that I have been the cartoonist for the Barney Google and Snuffy Smith comic strip, I have enjoyed bringing back characters to the comic strip that haven’t appeared in a very long time. This comic strip has such a long, rich history that it’s a lot of fun to look through vintage strips for characters to bring back for either short visits or as recurring characters.

Snuffy’s Maw Visits!

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!

As a child, I always looked forward to my grandparents visiting me in the summer at our house.  Or, me getting to visit my grandparents at their house in the summer!  It was always lots of fun to get to see them for an extended period of time!  With this in mind, I thought it might be fun to have Snuffy’s Maw, Miz Meddlin Smith, pay a week-long summertime visit to the strip.  She visits the strip from time to time, but usually for just a day or two.  I hope you enjoy this extended bodacious visit!  It promises to be a good time for everyone except Loweezy!  Her visit begins Monday, August 15th and concludes Saturday, August 20th.
