'More Half Hitch'

(Click on Cartoon)

Half Hitch was originally a cartoon character drawn up by Hank Ketcham during World War II and found itself in “The Saturday Evening Post” during the War! A newer version began as a daily and Sunday newspaper comic strip on Monday, February 16, 1970!! Though Ketcham's name went on it, this incarnation was written by Bob Saylor and drawn by Dick Hodgins, using a Ketchamesque style!!!

Most of Hitch’s time was devoted to chasing girls in every port, so the biggest fans were naturally sailors! But unfortunately, it won few readers in civilian life as Beetle Bailey had done, and the series was discontinued March 1, 1975...
