McDonnell is fully aware of the nostalgic qualities of his strip, as attested to by the deliberately old-fashioned spoof on the front cover of the book. And the fact that a funny-animal strip with a limited cast and setting can continue to hold a place in my affections through ten volumes, plus the Sunday reprint books, certainly speaks to its fine, if understated, qualities.
