Andy Capp

Andy Capp, the irrepressible pub dweller created by Reg Smythe, first appeared in the Daily Mirror newspapers of England in 1958 as a cartoon panel. It quickly became a favorite throughout the country, as readers everywhere could identify with the good-for-nothing Andy and his smart-mouthed wife, Flo.

Now, after more than 40 years in existence, Andy Capp has grown to be one of the most popular comic strips in the world. It is printed in over 1,500 newspapers in America and around the world, from Russia to Japan, Norway to Sri Lanka.

In short, Andy Capp has become part of our cultural heritage -- a character children and adults all can instantly recognize and enjoy.
