Hello, Royal Readers,

This week, SNUFFY SMITH cartoonist John Rose shares the delight he feels when he discovers a Snuffy Smith crossover in other comics. For example, here’s an example in HI AND LOIS:

This bee-yoo-ti-ful December, 2016 Hi and Lois Sunday comic strip featured many cartoon character crossovers, including Jughaid Smith (and Snuffy’s leg) in the fifth panel!  How many other crossover characters can you spot in this great strip by the talented creative team at the Hi and Lois comic strip?
