Comments on: "Bil Keane Quotes: I think it's a novelty for cartoon characters to cross over into another..."
Many of the network television shows have done takeoffs on ‘Family Circus,’ including ‘David Letterman,’ ‘Friends,’ ‘Roseanne,’ and others, and, in my estimation the use of them is a compliment to the popularity of the feature, which just by mentioning it’s name sets up the image of a warm, loving family-type feature.

His first syndicated strip, Channel Chuckles, a series of jokes related to television, premiered in 1954 and ran until 1977. Keane is a four-time recipient of the National Cartoonists Society's Award for Best Syndicated Panel, winning in 1967, 1971, 1973 and 1974.
