    “I know we haven’t seen Clyde, Honey, Phred, Ginny, Jeremy Cavendish, Zonker’s parents, Nicole, and some others for a while…”

    Or Calvin or B.D.‘s parents or Mike’s twin sister…

    For hindsight, here’s her first appearance
    (6 days before Zonker’s debut and 14 days before Nichole’s):

    I think this is Zonker’s first time “reconnecting” with Walden Puddle since Seinfeld went off the air, in this strip: http://www.gocomics.com/doonesbury/1998/05/01

    Before that, when was the Puddle last seen? In the 1973 strip Mike31g mentions?

    The characters are illustrated in varying degrees of perspective. I can’t remember this ever being done in Doonesbury before.

    Who in the delivery room was saying “Push, J.J.! Push!”?
    It couldn’t have been Mike. He was at B.D. and Boopsie’s house, watching it on TV.

    That week’s sequence began November 28, 1988:

    I’ve read a few Hutch Owen books, but somehow missed this daily strip during the few years it ran.Apparently, it’s been collected: http://www.hutchowen.com

    When was this rerun first printed?

    Have Alex and Jeff ever been in a scene together? It seems strange that they’ve never met.

    Though Duke was initially based on Thompson, he quickly became a completely different character: an amoral, apolitical, opportunist criminal.
    One sequence, collected in the paperback “In Search of Cigarette Holder Man”, reveals that Duke once doctored a 11/22/63 photo of Dealy Plaza to include his own likeness. It was part of a scam to make some easy money off the “JFK conspiracy nuts”. He even confirmed one such sucker’s suspicion that Lady Bird Johnson was involved!
