Hi and Lois was created in 1954 by Mort Walker and Dik Browne. This classic American comic strip has been entertaining newspaper readers for over five decades. The stars of the feature -- Hi, Lois, Chip, Dot, Trixie, and Dawg Flagston -- provide a warm, loving portrait of a wholesome family with traditional values and modern-day sensibilities. In today's often dysfunctional world, the Flagstons put the "fun" into functional family. Whether it's busy parents juggling jobs and raising a family, a teen coping with self-image, sibling rivalry among the youngsters, or a toddler learning about her place in the world, Hi and Lois has kept pace with mainstream life. The first Hi and Lois Sunday page was released on October 14, 1956. Mort and Dik always looked on these weekly instalments as an opportunity to showcase their best work. To them, a Sunday page was more than just an expanded daily strip. Mort would challenge Dik with ideas that inspired him to create a graphic masterpiece. Childhood fantasies, nostalgia trips, seasonal strolls, summer vacations, and holiday celebrations were among the many recurrent themes explored in these episodes.
