My husband and I have not found anything funny or otherwise meaningful in this new cartoon. Perhaps the appeal is to a younger audience. It is not clear why you would replace a clever comic “Get Fuzzy” with Phoebe.
I suggest moving Phoebe to the online paper, which might appeal to a younger audience.
In the meantime, we miss “Get Fuzzy” and the wonderful interaction between dogs, cats and a poor human in that strip. We would also like to see Born Loser back in the printed version of The Olympian.
