FIDDLESTIX© was created in 1979, and began appearing in publications during 1988. The first FIDDLESTIX© Cartoons were originally black and white one-shots for the first three years. During 1991 -2007 they eventually evolved into the three panel horizontal strips, and finally during 2007- 2010 the Sunday only multi-panel full color strips as seen throughout the below examples. (2007 – 2010 examples located on the FIDDLESTIX© Sunday Comics page.)
There were three core characters that always appeared within the panels of the feature, Grizzle and Irving, a misguided bear and his sidekick pal snake respectively. The other character was Pinhead. The strips alternated storylines between Grizzle and Irving, and Pinhead. In 2007 the dailies were pulled from publications and moved to a Sunday only multi-panel feature format. 2013 marked the 25th anniversary of the characters being in publications.
Here are examples of the One-Shot Panel B/W FIDDLESTIX© dailies as they appeared on the printed pages during 1988-1991.
FIDDLESTIX© has also appeared in comic books, anthologies, and magazines throughout the cartoon strips existence. I would like to thank all the readers that have supported and read the comics for all these years. Thanks also goes out to all the editors and publishers that I have worked with. I really appreciate you fine folks for getting FIDDLESTIX© out to the masses. I never thought that the characters would of appeared in publications for this long and I really enjoy providing the funnies for you the cartoon and comic art form lovers across the globe. FIDDLESTIX© is still running in syndication in all it’s different formats.
Here are the 3-Panel FIDDLESTIX© B/W dailies as they initially appeared from 1991 until 2008.
The original for the first strip below is exhibited through the FHHS Library Media Archive. This is how the strip looked during it’s first initial run to the first 25 years. The dailies still run on the printed pages as a “Classics” format.
Here is an example of the FIDDLESTIX© dailies as they appear on the printed pages through “Classics” re-runs. Huge Thanks to the studio assistants that are always willing to help in getting the funnies out to the masses daily.
The photo of the original strip below is courtesy of one of the studio assistant’s cartoon archive. I thought it would be fun to ask her to grab a photo that resembles the FHHS Library Media Archive photo. Since she owns a match to one of the original strips as they were framed for Galleries and Museum exhibits.
Here are examples of the “Limited Edition” 25th Anniversary Sunday strips
