    I see two characters from Popeye (Goon & Jeep), one from Peanuts (security blanket), Barney Google (Balls of Fire, etc), Alley Oop, Sad Sack, and The Yellow Kid (yellow journalism).

    This is a great strip! I did not know all these phrases came from comics! I actually learn something new each day at Go Comics. Helps me store up the smart.

    Nice. Some good additions from the comments, too. My grandfather’s name actually came from the comics. His given name was Oliver but nearly a hundred years ago there was a comic called Ted and Dot and his friends started calling him Ted and it stuck the rest of his life (he died over a hundred.)

    I know all those words, didn’t know they were either originated or were popularized with cartoon strips beyond “jeep”, “yellow journalism” and “alley oop”.

    I do recognize most of the characters here but who’s the prolific fella on the horse?

    Didn’t start in comics, but has been prolonged by them: “Good Grief,” and “blockhead.”

    It’s a shame that “banana oil” seems to have fallen by the wayside.

    Dueling Yellow Kids!

    “In 1896 Outcault was hired away at a much higher salary to William Randolph Hearst’s New York Journal American where he drew the Yellow Kid in a new full-page color strip which was significantly violent and even vulgar compared to his first panels for Truth magazine. Because Outcault failed in his attempt to copyright the Yellow Kid, Pulitzer was able to hire George Luks to continue drawing the original (and now less popular) version of the strip for the World and hence the Yellow Kid appeared simultaneously in two competing papers for about a year.”

    Goon was a POW’s term for a German guard. It later became famous from "The Goon Show " on BBC radio. Nothing to do with comic strips.
