Bil Keane (1922-2011) debuted his first "Family Circus" cartoon, based on
Keane's own family, in February 1960. The strip, which was originally called
"The Family Circle", still uses circles around the characters to denote their
closeness. The comic strip is distributed to over 1500 newspapers by The
King Features Syndicate, making it the most widely syndicated panel in the
U.S., and the "Family Circus" characters have appeared in TV holiday
specials and in paperback book compilations (some 14 million in print). Keane,
who was named Cartoonist of the Year in 1983, has passed his legacy along
to his family. His son Glen, a leading animator at Disney, created the starring
characters Ariel (The Little Mermaid), the Beast (Beauty and the
Beast), Pocahontas and Tarzan. Fine condition.
