Watterson was definitely a big influence on many of today’s younger cartoonists. Hard to believe C&H has been out of the papers so long. Even harder to believe that it’s been over twenty years since it premiered.

Even more amazing that it nearly didn’t premier at all, owing to the syndicate “experts”.

“United Feature Syndicate, however, responded positively to one strip, which featured a side character (the main character’s little brother) who had a stuffed tiger. Told that these characters were the strongest, Watterson began a new strip centered on them.[6] But United Features rejected the new strip”

In other words they snatched defeat from the jaws of victory.
