Re: Classic/retro comic strips thread
I looked it up in Wikipedia, and Pogo lasted from 1948 to 1975, and Walt Kelly stopped working on it in 1972. I do remember that the strip wasn't as good after Walt Kelly died and his wife took over. She gave up after just a few years.
The last strip showed the characters complaining that newspaper comics had gotten too small. In the final panel, Pogo was stranded in the middle of the swamp, clinging to a pole stuck in the mud. It bugged me that Pogo was left out there, and nobody ever rescued him because their world stopped.
