Mother Goose and Grimm

Creating his zany comic strip in 1984, Mike Peters’ Mother Goose and Grimm centers on an elderly goose and her dog Grimmy. He says of his art, “I know where the line is for bad taste, because I’ve been doing this for a long time, but if something is really, really funny to me, I've gotta put it in.” Peters has won both a Pulitzer Prize as an editorial cartoonist and a Reuben Award for his comic strip.
