    Nancy statistics: the last 137 days, since September 1st, 2013.

    Nancy appeared in 107 strips.
    Sluggo appeared in 44 strips.
    Nancy and Sluggo appeared together in 35 strips.
    Fritzi appeared in 44 strips.
    Phil appeared in 24 strips.
    Fritzi and Phil appeared together in 18 strips.
    Fritzi and Nancy appeared together in 21 strips.
    Oona appeared in 36 strips.
    Guy appeared in 2 strips.
    Alas, I didn’t tally Poochie. Sorry Poochie! Next time!

    Note:In a few instances characters in same strip were not counted as “together”, for example, if one frame showed only Phil and Fritzi, and the next showed only Nancy and Sluggo, it would count as one together appearance for each pair, but not a “Nancy/Fritzi” tally.

    Solo appearances by above characters:
    (solo in this case means character without any other main people characters in same strip)
    Nancy had a solo strip 22 times
    Sluggo had a solo strip 5 times
    Fritzi had 7 solo appearances
    Phil had 2 solo appearances
    Oona had 1 solo appearance
    2 strips had no main people characters

    Longest stretch with no Nancy in “Nancy”:
    6 days, from October 7th.

    What about how many apperances took place indoors or inside, you also forgot how many times they each said why

    Seems like lately the strip has seemed more in the old tradition. After being directed to a site by one commenter I saw an old strip that went like this: Nancy has a big box of sweetened dates, which she shares with a number of boys. She promises them more, but says they will each have to ask nicely for additional fruit, for one piece at a time. She then takes off down the street where she passes Sluggo who is talking to another girl and as she does the boys keep saying to her, if they can please have a date. The only strange thing is that while the girl Sluggo is with is certainly about his age, she has the face of a 25 year old.

    ‘Someone’ is singular but ‘their’ is plural. Usually happens when one doesn’t want to indicate a person’s gender (his or her).

    In how many strips did Nancy wear a red bow in her hair? Green? Pink? Etc.? (The actual strips, not the headers)

    That brings back memories of sliding down steep hills in boxes back in the day.
