For those of us that remember what (s) was your favorite Sunday Paper Comic Strip (s) ?

And how ofter did you use Silly Putty to make a copy of it ?

Sunday and weekday, hands down was Rick O'Shay.   Great story lines and impeccable artwork.  A close second was Peanuts.  Did the Silly Putty thing a couple of times, but usually didn't have any.

Hands down it was “B. C.”. That was the first one I went to in the Funny Pages. I also bought a couple of books full of B. C. Comics. 
 

B.C. was written by Johnny Hart and he started creating them in 1958 for newspapers. I had to look this up.

As a kid I loved Lil Abner, Dick Tracy, BC, and Peanuts. 
There was more that I’m not recalling at the moment but I read all the comics.

Rick O'Shay and my very favorite comic character of all time, Hipshot Percussion!  :D

I’m surprised no one has mentioned Pogo the Possum. Even when I was to young to understand the satire I knew he was funny. I especially liked the Turtle (Churchy?). “Friday the 13th falls on a Saturday this month.”

As a kid until I was a teen - Blondie, Dick Tracy, Beetle Bailey, BC, Lil Abner

 

Back when they were still around - Far Side, Calvin, Bloom County, Get Fuzzy, For Better Or For Worse

 

Now - Pearls Before Swine, Jump Start, Leo', Luanne, Pickles and Shermans Lagoon and the ones listed above on reruns.

 

FWIW, many of the old comics (reruns) and other comics can be found here...

I dearly loved The Far Side. Not sure when they started appearing in newspapers.

I just found it. They started in newspapers in 1979. The year i joined the Navy. I don’t recall seeing the Far Side until ‘83. I didn’t see many newspapers aboard ship.

Pogo, The Wizard of Id, and BC in that order.

 

I also enjoyed Li’l Abner!  Some of the finest satire ever!!

 

Never had Silly Putty. I don’t know why.
