That big Catholic Family Circus - GetReligion

Wed, Nov 16, 2011
News Service put it right in the lede, as you would expect: Bil Keane, the Catholic cartoonist who originated the comic strip “The Family Circus” more than 50 years ago, died Nov. 8 at age 89 in Paradise Valley, Ariz., near Phoenix. The cause of death was given as congestive heart failure. Later in that same story, Keane himself notes: The comic also is known for its occasional religious themes. While the worship depicted in “The Family Circus” is of a generic Christian nature, Keane told St. Anthony Messenger it came from the family’s long connection to the Catholic Church. “I draw out of my lifestyle,” Bil said. “I grew up Catholic, my kids grew up Catholic.” Did secular journalists, writing for mainstream news sources, need to include this information? That all depends on whether you thought that these journalists were writing to an audience that included “Family Circus” fans, the kinds of old-school newspaper readers who would be interested in the values advocated in all of those cartoons. If those readers cared about those values, and the man behind them, then, yes, it’s easy to argue that Keane’s Catholic faith should have been part of the mainstream story. Why not include that crucial element in his worldview and humor? Written by: tmatt on November 14, 2011.

(June 21, 2006) PHOENIX -- Bil Keane's "Family Circus" comics entertained readers with a simple recipe of humor in a traditional family environment for more than a half century. Keane, who started drawing the one-panel cartoon featuring Billy, Jeffy, Dolly, P.J. and their parents in February 1960, died Tuesday at age 89 at his longtime home i...

Bil Keane, Creator of ‘The Family Circus,’ Dies at 89

Thu, Nov 10, 2011
L”) Keane’s traditional-value, homespun humor in his cartoon “The Family Circus,” published in recent years in nearly 1,500 newspapers. Mr. Keane died at 89 on Tuesday at his home in Paradise Valley, Ariz., but the tradition will continue, said his son Jeff, who has been working with his father on the cartoon since 1981. No doubt they will bear the same gentle touch as the Oct. 23, 1965, cartoon in which three of the children — Billy, Dolly and Jeffy — are in the back of the station wagon as it passes a drive-in movie theater where a western is on the screen. “Wow!” Billy says. “I wish we lived in one of the houses along here.” Knee-slapping guffaws were not the stuff of Mr. Keane. “We are, in the comics, the last frontier of good, wholesome family humor and entertainment,” he told The Associated Press in 1995. “On radio and television, magazines and the movies, you can’t tell what you’re going to get. When you look at the comic page, you can usually depend on something acceptable by the entire family.” Particularly a... (New York Times)
