    I guess we don’t have a say in this, but it would be nice to see some early Cathy strips, like from the 1970’s

    Agreed. There’s no knowing which strips GOCOMICS has in their archives. Remember back in the 70s, they were not even thinking about digital rights…

    On at least two sites, they are re-running this same strip this morning.

    Anyone care to guess when this strip was from?

    Yes! 10-4! So now all we need is the year…

    Yeah, go back to the oldest that GoComics has and move forward. It wouldn’t be as good as the strips from the 70s and 80s, but it would be a start.

    Personally, I’m wondering if this is her way of telling us to “get a life” (or since there’s a lot of us, to “get a whole bunch of lives”) and move on, but I doubt it. Hopefully, she likes her fans.

    there is no reason not to put the original published date on the ‘toon.

    It would be very nice if “they” did.

    It look like Cathy was drawn different then, than yesterday. The eyes are different. I like it keep up with the older ones. Looks more like my Cathy cake pan I have.

    I’m just happy to have a Cathy comic here – I was expecting to have a big hole in my life. Big thanx to whoever made the decision to do reruns.

    I’d like to see the strips from the 70’s but it seems the oldest GoComics has is from March 11 1996. I hope it doesn’t jump around. One day she’s married to Irving the next she’s dating Alex ( I think that was the personal trainer’s name.)

    Ya, I didn’t hear anything about classics, but I’m glad to have them. If I didn’t miss the comics yesterday, I probably wouldn’t have looked at Cathy today, thinking she was done.

    I wish gocomics would post the original print dates like comics.com does. I especially enjoy seeing them on Peanuts, which are now still currently running from 1963, and are older than I am, but fit right in today.

    Cathy reruns will make us remember all the great stuff we did in the 80’s. Especially when she hits the mall.

    It’s really the choice of the syndicates, I would say. They’ve already got license to her existing work. They’ll definitely continue to use it online. In print, they may very well retire the strip to make room for other print strips…

    But she really can’t complain. She’ll continue to draw a paycheck for online usage of her material…

    There’s a DOLLAR SIGN in front of that 99 -

    $99

    They probably chose 1999 because the calendar for that year is the same as for this year. That way, they won’t have mismatched dates.

    Good eyes, RadioTom

    Indeed, that IS a dollar sign. So it is NOT a year 99.

    if you click the calendar button above the comic and thru there you go to 10/4/99 you’ll see it’s this cartoon, so it is from ‘99

    OK, I blew up the pic and do not see a $ sign anywhere. The sign says….

    FALL ‘99

    (last L missing and assumed)

    If you put in the 1999 date, then GoComics has this strip in colour, but the rerun is B&W.
