Without context, the preview image makes it look like Snuffy and the other two characters whose names I don't care to remember have been hanged.

Hey, it's that comic that I used to never read! Interestingly, I googled it, and while it's not the origin of the word, it was the word's first mainstream appearance and contributed to its popularity. Imagine a modern world where you still had to tell your friends to "altavista it."

sasazuka
Oh, "Google" is actually interesting.

I reckoned all the supporting characters in this strip/cartoon had names like "Ma" or "Jim-Bob". (While the Montreal Gazette had some King Features Syndicate strips like Hagar the Horrible and Blondie, I don't ever remember them having Snuffy Smith.)

I'm sure one could find some Cartoon Brew post about how this is a masterpiece of animation, superior to anything seen in this dissolute modern era of My Little Pony and Bratz Monsterz Girlz.
BHWW
Well I would argue that it's superior to Bratz or MLP, at least.

Ding ding ding. http://www.cartoonbrew.com/classic/snuffy-smith-by-jim-tyer-37050. html

"Someone just posted on You Tube several of the rarely seen 1963 King Features Snuffy Smith cartoons that were animated by Jim Tyer. Tyer is a real cult figure around here for his absolutely outrageous cartoony animation, way-off model, celebrated by the best in the business and rightly so. Not even limited animation could suppress his looney drawing style"

To be fair, they're gushing over an animator. Nobody would defend the actual cartoon strip as being entertaining.

Mewonders if anyone ever thought to bring this into the 21st century like what was done with certain other 40s-50s era cartoon properties.

I'm hoping that's a trend that has died out. After all, we never saw the "Popeye" reboot or "Felix the Cat" after Dreamworks bought it, so maybe even the suits have figured out nobody wants to see that kind of thing.

So...it's Squidbillies?

Snuffy Smith was added to the Barney Google strip originally back in the 30's when "hillbilly humor" had become a thing, as seen with the popularity of efforts like Al Capp's Lil' Abner and the dozens of other wannabes and one-offs and such in various media for every Snuffy Smith or Abner success story.
