Y is for Yankee Doodles #AtoZChallenge

For this year’s A to Z Challenge, I have chosen the theme of comic strips. For those young ones out there, a comic strip is a few drawn panels telling a story which appears in the newspaper. The first daily comic strip began in 1907, but the color comics (Sunday funnies) actually began back in 1894.

If you are here looking for my typical Wednesday quote, I will go back to my regular schedule in May. Until then, enjoy the A to Z Challenge…

Y is for Yankee Doodles, by Ben Templeton, Don Kracke and Fred W. Martin (though on the strip they only listed their first names). It ran from 1973 to 1977. The comic strip takes place during the American Revolution featuring characters such as George Washington and Ben Franklin in humorous situations.

This strip came out near our bicentennial and when bicentennial fever disappeared, the interest in the strip did too. But not before merchandise such as lunch boxes were produced. After this strip ended, Templeton went on to draw Motley’s Crew, while Martin and Kracke left the syndicated strip world.
