Classic Comics

Henry was always one of my favorites. I like the way he is drawn and the clean, colorful look of the strip. Also, as a child, I identified with Henry for some reason. (Open in new tab for larger image.)

Yes, I remember both the Krazy Kat strip and the cartoons. I love Krazy Kat. That one goes back a long way, too, into the silent days, I believe. Ohhhh...Ignatz! 😍 :lol:

I'm glad to hear you know about Krazy Kat! Yes, this comic strip started in the teens and ended in 1944. I have posted at least one cartoon that I can remember on this forum.

That's the first time I've seen that strip. The human character looks kind of Doonebury-ish.

Here's another strip I used to like as a kid. It has the same clean, colorful style as the Henry comic, though the characters are done differently.

I hadn't seen the Get Fuzzy strip, either. This thread is educating me! I just discovered this one. They're pretty funny!
