haha, Betty’s “Cringe” face is pretty funny. Very unusual expression from the artist!
The writing in these Bullet strips is just so, SO amazing. “A face that suggested somebody upstairs had a weird sense of humor. But I wasn’t going to her place for laughs” is magnificent noir, while also being comedic.
Mr. Howtheduck secretly thinks Elly is the best character ever, with the most common sense. He was just afraid to tell you :).
haha, terrific joke this time. Takes you a second to get it :).
Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand we’re back to the original strips again. I should really take this outta my GoComics feed, lol.
Tell that to the censors. They’re notoriously rough on the comics pages, lest parents write furious letters to the newspapers, who then whine to the syndicate.

Very “meta”- this is probably Watterson explaining why he doesn’t want there to be a TV show based on his work. “I never wanted to see an actor auditioning to voice Hobbes”, I believe he said.
They actually had the baby way, WAY back, at least when I first read the comic (the mid-90s). But he hasn’t shown up in AGES, at least since I started reading again. I had forgotten all about him!
“NAILED”!? Good heavens! Evans is testing the censors yet again.
