Mort Walker, best known as the creator of the long running comic strip Beetle Bailey, has died at the age of 94.



Walker was part of more than a half-dozen comic strips in his career, including "Hi and Lois," ''Boner's Ark" and "Sam & Silo." But his greatest success came from Beetle, his hot-tempered sergeant and the rest of the gang at fictional Camp Swampy, which he drew for nearly 70 years.

Read it every morning in the funnies as a kid.

RIP Mort.

Say hi to my mom & dad if you run into them...
Great news guys.... With the Air Hawk, flat balls are no longer a problem!!!

Disapprove...what a loss! I was raised on Beetle Baily cartoons and lived the kids'-version of the Army life as I watched it all around me as I grew up. I can associate with every one of the characters as I followed the cartoon from my youth until secondary school. The SAD part is the fact I figured Mort Walker had been dead for the last 25-30 years, at a minimum...my apologies, MrW - thank you & RIP.
 
 
Beetle Baily got banned from the Stars & Stripes news when Lt. Flap showed up (right at very bad racial tensions in the military). Walker was actually ahead of his time, here as people took the APPEARANCE of Lt. Flap wrong. He's cool, educated, aaaaaaaaaaand ~ a black officer ~. He out-ranked most other characters.

One of those "old school" terms that got a different meaning over time...



The old most common form of use was "pulling a boner".

Which is even worse when you think about it!!!!!
