Thank you so much for mentioning this! I really appreciated all those special birthday shout outs! I would like to add that there was one other King Features comic strip, Pros & Cons, that featured Barney Google. Also, Garfield wished the strip happy birthday on his Facebook with some special art.

Congratulations again to John Rose and “Barney Google and Snuffy Smith” as the memories of the legacy of Billy DeBeck and Fred Lasswell live on! Thank you for including the “Lum and Abner” tribute in this coverage.

Y’know John, I had that Pros and Cons on my list, then somehow fumbled it.
I added it to the entry – thanks to you, and apologies to Kieran for the slip.

The Mutts comic is the best. I nearly spat out my tea.
