About

Barney Google And Snuffy Smith

Barney Google and Snuffy Smith is one of the longest-running comic strips in history. Created by Billy DeBeck in 1919, it stars the cigar-smoking, sports-loving, poker-playing, girl-chasing ne'er-do-well Barney. In 1934, Snuffy Smith, a gruff, lazy mountain man joined him and the strip has evolved into a national classic. It has added several phrases to the American vernacular, including ldquobodacious,rdquo ldquosweet mama,rdquo ldquohorsefeathers,rdquo ldquoheebie-jeebiesrdquo and ldquohotsie-totsie.rdquo In 1942, Barney Google was inherited by DeBeck's long-time assistant, Fred Lasswell, who continued to draw the strip until his death in March 2001. John Rose, who inked the strip for Lasswell, continues the tradition today.
