Not Cool, Fresno Bee: The Removal of Sally Forth and Get Fuzzy

Old Fresno Bee Comics on the left, new on the right.

At risk of sounding like an old man ranting at clouds, I’m hella disappointed about the removal of Sally Forth and Get Fuzzy from the Fresno Bee’s Sunday comics lineup.

Get Fuzzy

They are two of the most well written & drawn comics today. Both strips are smart, slightly edgy, funny and unique.

It makes me suspicious of the sensibilities of the Bee staff in charge of picking the comics lineup.

Sally Forth

You leave in Wizard Of ID and B.C. but pull Fuzzy and Sally? Shame.

I’ll also slightly miss Blondie and Slylock Fox & Comics For Kids. The later produced nice drawing prompts for the youth.

I do like seeing Doonesbury on the front page as a counter to Dilbert, and Peanuts returning to the front too – the Peanuts have kinda come back around again and feel fresh somehow.

New additions Candorville and Mt. Pleasant have potential. So I’ll will follow them, and I’m somehow okay with Garfield returning.

But I can’t get around the thinking that Sally Forth & Get Fuzzy needed to go.

Rating for the new lineup: D+
