    Why the new look for the Yo-Yos?

    @seismic-2

    Have they made a previous appearance?

    BTW, how will Guy get away with using that name? Yo-Yo is a trademark.

    Nope; according to Wikipedia, “yo-yo” lost its trademark status in 1965.

    They were in Tuesday’s strip. I don’t know what they looked like in the comic book in the ’50s.

    I remember TWO versions of the Yo-yos. They seem to have shape-shifting capability.

    The ones I remember (which I really ought to go back to look up) were tiny green (or blue?) round-headed fellows wearing white robes (OK, handkerchiefs). Does someone have easy access to those stories (from the original comics or the John Stanley hardback reprints) who can describe them accurately?

    Sounds like Bushmiller’s answer to Al Capp’s “Shmoos.”

    The yo-yos were green with yellow or gold backs. They look the same now, except they are not green.

    Una reminds me of Luna Lovegood.

    The yo-yos looked like little green turtles that had yellow shells. They were always chasing Nancy and she always got away just in time.

    Una looks familiar, like a comic book character from the early 60s, but I cannot place her. Perhaps from “Little Lulu”?

    Newenglandah, cartoonist John Stanley is perhaps best remembered for his “Little Lulu” comic books, but he also had a wonderful run with “Nancy” comics, and that’s where he created the Oona Goosepimple character. Oona has always been a member (whether real or imaginary!) of the Nancy-verse.

    OK, here is a comics page drawn by John Stanley featuring the “classic” look of the yo-yos:
