    “I Go Pogo/” Still one of the great strips. I always remembered the quote as, “We have met the enemy and they is us.” Of course, I was probably about ten or 11 when that hit. Long frigging time ago, anyway.

    Pogo was the #1 comic strip in my life growing up. It was the philosophy of life, but I was too young at the time to know that was why I loved it.

    Pogo’s swamp spawned many here…

    I’m very sorry to say that I don’t have any context for this, so I don’t really get it.

    The words “We have met the enemy and he is us” were on a poster Walt Kelly designed for the first Earth Day.


    I used to have it on my wall.


    I don’t think he used the line before that — but I could be wrong.


    If you were 10 in 1970, Engineer, you’re not very aged. :)


    But I am…. sigh…

    Typical of Pig to get mixed up even in a tribute strip!
    I did read Pogo while growing up, but it wasn’t really one of my favorites. De gustibus non est disputandem.

    How about, “Healthy hath no furry like a woman’s corns”?

    I was always partial to the name of Grundoon’s baby sister. “Not if you spell it with a final E.” Oh, and Friday the 13th comes on Thursday this month.

    If you don’t know Pogo, run out and make his acquaintance right now. There would be no Pearls (or Get Fuzzy) without Pogo.

    Shmoos were cool, but that was Li’l Abner in about 1950 or so.

    This is definitely a Saturday strip.

    I still have Kelly’s, God is not dead, ’til yet cartoon…the man was a true artist and wit. Mark Twain or Will Rogers with a pen.
