    I think the old Tip Top comic book had Fritzi in it.

    Used to collect them in the 1980s. Then the artwork went south and I quit reading them.

    That oath gives me a chill every time I hear it.

    Since we’re comparing notes about classic comic books…..I have a trivia question for all- and only those who are hard-core Dell comic readers are likely to know it:

    We all know who Donald Duck’s nephews are, right?
    But do you know the rest?
    …Daisy Duck’s nieces?
    …Mickey Mouse’s nephews?
    …and for the grand prize, who can name Minnie Mouse’s nieces?

    @JezzVimSr

    That’s cheating.

    Even the ‘net is a little hard to pin down on this. Of course, I had started researching it years before there was an internet to turn to. I even went and inquired of the folks at Disneyland. Most people don’t even know there were other characters, which is my main reason for the trivia question. The most reliable information I have been able to come up with is that the nieces were largely an invention of Dell Comics, as they were not used in the cartoons. I’m not sure that they ever were. The most frequent names given are Millie and Molly, although it was sometimes Millie and Melody. There were only two, regardless. To add to the mystery, in one comic book story, Morty and Ferdy are presented as Minnie’s nephews. It is very confusing.

    Even Oswald the Rabbit is referred to as Mickey Mouse’s older half brother!

    Mickey’s nephews were Morty and Marty.

    I don’t remember Minnie’s nieces.

    I do remember that Popeye’s four nephews were Peepeye, Poopeye, Pipeye, and Pupeye.

    Mickey’s nephews were Morty and Ferdie when I was a kid. Did Ferdie become Marty? It sounds better.

    We used to trade comic books when I was a kid. One guy down the road who was a couple of eggs short of a full nest couldn’t read, but he said he enjoyed the pictures.

    Comic books went bad when they started rebooting everyone and made them graphic novels. How many times do they need to retell the Peter Parker got bit by a radioactive spider story? We all know it fer gosh sakes.

    Really glad Nancy and Sluggo are into comics, looks like they love the classics.

    I wish DC or Marvel would run old classic comics in their aps. I’d love to reread all the old Brave and Bold or SGT Furies Howling Commandos. Even better, to reprint them even. I’m sure that there’d be a market. As long as it was on proper, old style paper.
