February 28, 1951: Shermy named again

Shermy's name is mentioned again.  I'm obsessing a bit on this because learning character names is fairly difficult in many comic strips.  Most individual strips of many comics are intended to stand alone, but even so, characters are only named once in a great while. You'd be forgiven for not knowing Wally, from Dilbert's, name, or... hey, I just realized I still don't know what the triangle-haired woman is called.


  1. I think this strip shows how kid-like the characters are as opposed to some strips where they come up with such big words making them sound like mini-adults. Shermy and Patty are really argumentative here.
