Cartoon Island Contest Votes off Mary Worth
A couple of weeks ago, I told you that the The Times in Shreveport, LA was holding a “Cartoon Island” contest to see which features should be voted off the funny pages. Candidates for removal included: Mary Worth, Sally Forth, Beetle Bailey, Marvin, Hagar the Horrible, For Better or For Worse, and Curtis. After more than 2,400 votes, Mary Worth has been shown the door. The votes against her were nearly 2 to 1. Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott’s Baby Blues moves from a Sunday only to the daily page as a replacement starting Monday.
