Merry Menagery

Sunday Surprise Day. With yesterdays long run of Hi and Lois dailies from 1959 comes a similar run of another member from Walker Family of strips, the unjustly forgotten Mrs. Fitz' Flats. It was drawn by Frank Roberge (who also did the Beetle comics and worked for the family deep into this century), but if you compare it to his other work you can see he must have followed the sketches by Mort, Jerry Dumas and the other writers very closely. I love the basic idea of an old lady running a boarding house, I love the characters and the gags are of the same quality as those for Hi and Lois and Beetle at the same time.
