In celebration of the Easter holiday, we posted the Hi and Lois Sunday page above. Although Trixie Flagston has been appearing in newspapers for over sixty years, she’s still a newborn baby who is discovering the world.
Below is an Easter-themed New Yorker cover by Roz Chast.
In addition to drawing cartoons, Roz enjoys decorating Ukranian Easter eggs, known as “pysanky.”

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.
Most of us start off the New Year with the best intentions. The hard part is sticking to our resolutions.
Here is a Hi and Lois Sunday page from 2007 in which the characters make promises to overcome temptations, reform bad habits and improve their lives.
