The Master of Big Foot Cartoons

1950 saw the introduction of three of the most successful and longest-running comic strips of all time — “Peanuts,” “Dennis the Menace,” and “Beetle Bailey.” Sparky Schulz passed away in 2000, Hank Ketchum died a year later, and Mort Walker stopped drawing today.

“Big-Foot” in this context means a style of cartooning, and not a tall, hairy creature that roams the wilderness! Forty years ago I visited the Cartoon Museum that Walker had at that time in Port Chester, NY.
