Heppi Boid Day to You!

Today's blog post is dedicated to my wife, who celebrates her birthday today. I wouldn't say she's a fan of Krazy Kat, so I don't know for sure if she'll appreciate a sentiment like "Be you ever so forgotten, there's someone who remembers." Krazy Kat delivers fond birthday greetings via gramophone with birthday cake to the incarcerated and apparently irate Ignatz Mouse, as delineated by the remarkable George Herriman.

First we have the published Krazy Kat Sunday newspaper comic strip, June 4, 1922:

Here now is the original Herriman artwork:
