Hi and Lois Sunday page, February 24, 2002.
This Hi and Lois Sunday page was a tribute to Bil Keane’s Family Circus.
Keane’s original round panel was called Family Circle when it debuted on February 29, 1960, but Keane had to change the name six months later because there was a magazine with the same name.

This Sunday page from a few years back was inspired by the famous line from the Peanuts comics strip, “Happiness is a warm puppy,” that became a cultural catch-phrase in the 1960s and the title of a best-selling book, first published in 1962.
Hi and Lois Sunday page, December 25, 1966.
By 1966, when this Christmas Sunday page appeared, Trixie had become the star of the strip. Readers enjoyed watching her discover the world around her and sharing her innocent perceptions.
Most parents can identify with this situation. Young children often find joy in the simplest of activities, like opening a present or playing in a box. For Trixie, what comes in the box is an unexpected surprise.
