This, like the very irregular, Scoopy the Surly Sundae, are for those times when the daily funnies aren’t that. Or if we have a hankering to see one of our favorite characters, Libby herself!

But wait — there’s more!


Estelle is doing her best to stay under control and get on with her life.

And once again we find Wilbutt cliffside, but with some faithful animal friends!

a little celebration for Carol’s escape….

All right, a little crossover is usually not more than surreal at best…

I don’t snark on Pickles, because I like the strip (have I ever snarked on it?). OTOH, I can see it a universe that Mary Worth might visit when it’s clear that Moy and Brigman are doing their best to ignore her….

I usually don’t snark on Garfield, either, because it’s just plain stupid. Eventually, however, the syndicate GoComics DID color-correct this strip (The proper response is “big deal.”)

…when Pluggers is getting to be one of the most up-beat and happy strips around.

And when the little bits of happiness go blissfully around….

And then there are some subjects that I know WAY too much about. In addition to losing a certain number with each decade…

It’s just sort of reminiscent of another strip…another plot…another character…

Hey, you’re retired, Plugger! Who the hell cares WHEN you show up (if ever)?

…but Scoopy the Surly Sundae does have a softer side, particularly when it comes to Harry Bliss’ sad little squirrel on a park bench.

A philosophical doggo. A hedonistic cat. Life is good. (Thanks to the comic “Bliss” for the happy thought.)

Harry Bliss is a cartoonist for the New Yorker, so it’s no wonder why I can’t figure out some of his work. But he does Chas. Addamsesque stuff at times, and at others, a cartoon is so sad (like a distraught little squirrel sitting on a park bench with a grieving man) that I have to mess with it, or I get all sad and snorfly, too.
