Every year for Thanksgiving, I ask our cartoonists what they’ve been grateful for in the past year. Here are this year’s answers!
Alex Hallatt, Arctic Circle:
I’m thankful for a job that allows me to live anywhere in the world and the boys I travel with: Duncan and Billie!
Mort Walker, Beetle Bailey:
Bill Griffith, Zippy the Pinhead:
I’m not feeling much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving. There’s something about a white nationalist in the White House that doesn’t give me warm & fuzzy thoughts.
Zippy, however, focuses on less weighty matters as he gazes up at the Gotham skyline and its multitude of cute water tanks (ignoring all the super-skinny skyscrapers inhabited mainly by Russian oligarchs).
Ron Ferdinand, Dennis the Menace:
It’s nice to see that the Mitchells and the Wilsons have their priorities in order on Thanksgiving!
Bill Holbrook, Kevin & Kell, On the Fastrack, & Safe Havens:
Here’s a real blast from the past; “Safe Havens” from 1990 when Samantha was just four years old. Note the old school tech.
John Rose, Barney Google & Snuffy Smith:
Even though his stomach may hurt from overeating in this Thanksgiving Day comic strip from a few years ago, Snuffy Smith is ALWAYS thankful for Loweezy’s delicious cooking!
Isabella Bannerman, Six Chix:
I am grateful for my friends and family. And some of those friends and family know that I am also usually very grateful for mashed potatoes, too.
David Reddick, Intelligent Life:
I’m thankful for DRAWING TURKEYS THEY ARE SO FUN TO DRAW.
Terri Libenson, The Pajama Diaries:
