Best pals Barney Google and Snuffy Smith. One thing we are bodaciously thankful for this year is that Barney Google and his horse Spark Plug are visiting our comic strip for Thanksgiving! Look for the special visit by these classic characters beginning Sunday, November 19th, 2017. Their week long visit will last until Saturday, November 25th, 2017. Balls O' Fire--it will surely be a Thanksgiving like no other! Be sure to toon in! You definitely won't want to miss it!
