We’re digging deep into our archives to reminisce on some of the sweetest, funniest, and most significant moments from the past two and a half decades of MUTTS!

Here are strips from the second and third weeks of MUTTS strips ever published, in which Earl the dog meets Mooch — that myshterious cat next door — and a few other neighbors, too.

Hello, Earl and Mooch, I look forward daily for My “Earl & Mooch” visit via my computer!!! Your visits fill my heart with joy….whether I am having a good day or a difficult one. I am pretty much house-bound and your visits help SO MUCH!!! I have a little “Yorkie” and I can see a lot of you two in him…his name is Jeffrey. Please keep coming to me and bringing so much delight into my heart and my home. Thank you, from my heart…..Carol

My local newspaper used to get Mutts. When they quit I signed up for the daily email – couldn’t live without my daily fix of Earl & Mooch and the gang! Thank you for all you do for animals (and for us!)


When the world’s too much for us, MUTTS is the answer.

Same here.


I LOVE Mutts! I have been a loyal fan since discovering them in the 1990’s.
So grateful they are celebrating 25 years. This comic is a daily joy in my life!


I remember loving these the first time I saw them – reading the first Mutts book in a large bookstore and waving it at my roomie – “I need this!” I kept chirping at her.
