Looking for a certain Mutts strip

Post by Fire Flower on Thu Nov 22, 2012 8:58 pm

It was a Sunday strip. Mooch wants to write a poem for Shnelly and Earl tries to help him. Mooch can't think of rhymes but he and Earl rhyme each other sentences. The last panel is Earl: Forget it. I'm just wasting my time. Mooch: Yeah this cat can't rhyme.

Oh, my. That rings a bell, but I'm hopeless at this. Fiffur might know --- you'll have to wait till her library is open again.

I'll have to do some research through the ol' scrapbook.....was it a Valentine's Day strip by any chance? Otherwise, this may take a while.

I don't know if it was Valentine's Day...but I would start there. I am sorry I can't be of more help.

Is it an old strip or more recent, FireFlower? Like, this year? A few years? Ancient?

It is an older strip. I think within the last 10 years.

That helps........I'll look over the weekend and see if I can find it. If I do, I can refer to my index and tell you which book and what page it can be found on.

I found it........and it was older than you thought Fire Flower. Dates all the way back to 1996! I started in the scrapbook at 2008 and went backwards and looked at every single strip, in case it was a daily and not a Sunday one. Literally thousands of strips. June 2, 1996 to be precise. And you can also find it in book 2: Cats and Dogs on pg 50 in B&W, and in Sundays on pg. 45 in color.

Flower....you are most welcome. Glad I could help. Very Happy

It also helps that not only do I have every single strip (though a dozen of them are computer printouts and some others are missing the tribute panel). Whenever a new Mutts book comes out I go through the scrapbook and compare them to the book and write down which strip is on what page in an index. Once I find the strip I can easily look it up and see if it's in a book and on what page. Some strips have never been in the books and haven't been seen since they were published (some of them aren't in the Pick-a-print either). A few others are repeats, though Patrick hasn't done that very often at all considering we're going on 19 years worth of Mutts.

I thought that too but they require a Librarian Science degree these days......no more learning on the job. I know this place nearly as well as the back of my hand.

I used to be a bookkeeper though, and I've always had an eye for details.
