Sluggo

In my considered opinion, Sluggo was a terrific comic character. If you know Ernie Bushmiller’s Nancy, you know that it was one of the stupidest comics ever created. Ernie, himself, used to say when asked about what makes a comic strip successful. “Dumb it down”. And he was right. Nancy was so minimalistic. That’s what made it great. It was the kind of comic strip that you just had to read. And Sluggo always fascinated me. This collection is from Kitchen Sink’s   How Sluggo Survives. How does he? He’s a little kid, he lives alone in a shack with no money and no parents. But he gets by.

Is that stupid or what?

    – so, who was that soprano 2/27/20 and what was the music?
    And when are you going to get to Smoky Stover?

    I am not necessarily opposed to the mouse hole with “Bob” over it.
    Us Bobs need to stick together.
    Right Bob, I mean Bud

      I named half my characters “Bob”. Well, not half. Reverend Bob and Bob the Zombie. Did you ever see the two videos I made of “Bob the Cockroach”? I had two cousins, we were very close in age. We were all three all named “Robert”. And my sister is “Roberta”. The nickname “Bob” just sounds so very funny to me.

    Bud, you hit the nail on the head, exactly. Nancy and Sluggo was the last strip I looked at, every day. I dreaded it, and I always read it and groaned. Thanks for the memory. I think.
