When longtime friends Rick Kirkman and Jerry Scott first discussed doing a comic strip about parenthood, Rick, at least, knew what he was talking about. He and his wife had their first daughter in 1984, and in 1987 their second daughter was born. Jerry, who had no children, thought what Rick was going through as a parent was very funny. So he decided to write about what he saw at the Kirkmans' home temper tantrums. Dirty diapers. Teething pains. When Rick added his superb artwork, Baby Blues was born.

The strip has enchanted new parents, grandparents and kids alike since it first appeared on the comics pages in 1990. As the years passed, the list of newspapers carrying the feature has grown almost as fast as the MacPhersons' kids! Baby Blues now appears in more than 800 newspapers worldwide, and the adventures of America's favorite first-time parents have also been chronicled in 18 anthologies and 3 treasuries. In 1995, the National Cartoonists Society recognized Baby Blues as "Best Comic Strip of the Year."

The reason why this is cool: yes, it rings true for parents. Plus, the people who could write this material generally don't have time to become respected cartoonists. In fact, not having time to even read a newspaper is precisely why us parents prefer to read our comics on the web (those of us who are tech-saavy enough to use or this site to manage our links, at least).

Think of this strip as providing parents with fodder to hang on their fridge or their door for work, *NOT* as an ongoing artistic endeavor. I've seen their breastfeeding strips in the offices of lactation consultants, and wouldn't be surprised to see some of their strips at our pediatrician's or dentist's offices. They effectively capture common parenting jokes in four panels or less. If you've heard a parent joke about it, they've probably turned it into a strip, and that means you can hang a depiction of your favorite parenting joke on your fridge or post a link on your blog on that topic without drawing it yourself. Consider using these strips on home-made cards to parents or parents-to-be, or trimming them from the paper to give to friends. If you are a parent and this hits home, read it daily; otherwise, just click through the archives looking for them to hit your favorite parenting topics or stop by occasionally.

For a more innovative parent / child strip, I recommend "Count Your Sheep". Wonderful characters you can invest in, artistic, and definately not pedestrian.

Keep up the great work!

Not as good as the TV show, but OK. Probably makes more sense to parents than to teenage interenet nerds, but who do they think'll be reading the site? I guess since this was originally syndicated, and still is, it probably had a better chance of reaching it's target audience, which explains it running for so long.

Poorly drawn, predictable and pedestrian humor
smileyfaceman 1/5
Perhaps this stuff does ring true for a lot of parents, but the bland writing and non-jokes can only take it so far.

This piece of crap clutters up the comics page. Why, oh why, would anyone want this cluttering up their cache as well?

I'm sure it rings true for a lot of parents, but I can't imagine this stuff is difficult to write.
