TRUTH !!
"Nancy" first appeared in Ernie Bushmiller's "Fritzi Ritz" in 1933. Fritzi
was a flapper and Nancy was introduced as her niece. The eight year old was
precocious and quickly dominated the strip to the point where it was renamed
in 1938 and Aunt Fritzi was gradually phased out. Sluggo Smith, an eight
year old boy from the other side of the tracks, arrived in 1938. Bushmiller
died in 1982, but the strip has been continued by a series of cartoonists,
most recently by a female. The popularity of the strip was based on the
humor which appealed to a broad audience. Newspapers certainly did not have
to worry about angry letters.
