Ack! I missed The Family Circus because I kept typing in Family Circle... maybe the "circular" bit in the clue threw me off. And then I missed "For Better or For Worse" because I only typed "For Better or Worse" Got all the rest except for Pearls Before Swine which I'd never heard of before.

Calvin and Hobbs should be accepted , took me forever to figure out I was spelling it wrong!

Man, only 15% for For Better or For Worse? That's one of my favorites. I remember there was even an animated "movie" version that I loved to watch when I was little.

I think the second "For" in the title threw people off - Many just try "For Better or Worse."

agreed. Almost as good as Calvin and Hobbes. Aside from the Far Side and maybe Doonsbury nothing else here touches those two.

Yes, Bloom County was awesome! Calvin and Hobbes rules this list. And Doonesbury went off the rails years ago.

Great quiz... one of those where I can picture almost all of them in my mind but the names become a jumble & I can't come up with half of them.

I had the same problem with Marmaduke, Doonesbury, For Better or Worse, and Hagar the Horrible. So frustrating not to be able to pull it out of my pea-sized brain. I've never heard of Pearls Before Swine.

You could describe the Far Side as having a lot of science references.

Pretty good quiz! There are a few I didn't get. I wish The Boondocks was included - even though I think the cartoon is better known, it was a comic strip first.

That feeling when you scroll down to make a comment and see that you already posted it years ago. At least I caught it before making the comment a second time.

My favorite is Pickles. We don't get Pickles in our local paper, but my husband's cousin sends them to us and says they are us. I think he's half right, anyway - my husband is very much like Earl who is also a fast listener who sometimes finishes listening before Grandma is finished talking.
