Can you complete the titles of these classic newspaper comic strips?

Time to get down to funny (pages) business.

It was always the first thing we turned to in the newspaper. If we're being honest, it still is. Forget the stock prices and sports scores. We want to laugh.

That's why the funny pages have lasted so long. Some titles have been telling jokes for decades — nearly a century. Of course, there were comic strips devoted to adventure and romance, too.

Below, you will find some of the longest-running comic strips in newspaper history. See if you can complete their names!

Arcamax has or had most of these I have or had a subscription on there but can't get them to email me them anymore not sure why. NO! they are not on my spam list either just not sure why. But yeah great comics although the ones I guessed on never read and or heard of. OR can't remember.

10/12 and should have been less, but a couple was educated guesses.
Read most of those though. Prince Valient I liked, Snuffy Smith, Bettle Bailey, Wizard of Id, etc. Surprised LIL Abner wasn't there.

And I still remember (the 1960's version) of the GORGEOUS Brenda Starr, always hunting for her love, the equally GORGEOUS Basil St. John with his eye patch and always hunting the elusive black orchid to create the serum that kept him alive.

I remember not only the comics, but TV cartoons of "Barney Google, with his goo- goo- googly eyes."
