Foxtrot Comic is an American comic strip created and drawn by Bill Amend. The comic book launched in April 1990, and it ran for seven days a week for seven months, until December 30, 1996. Since that time, Foxtrot has largely only appeared on Sundays. Its comic book hero is a talking fox who has a mysterious past and an intriguing plot. The comic became one of the most popular superheroes in history, and Bill Amend was a nominee for an Academy Award for Best Actor in a Comedy Movie.
The strip is one of the earliest to combine action with humor, and to do so well. It was later followed by the equally popular Blue's Clues and Doonesbury. Foxtrot stands out in that it mixes real life situations (such as a parent losing a hand) with fun cartoonish elements. This combination has made the strip a hit among young readers. In addition, a large number of adults have read the strips because of the fact that they are often considered edgy, and a lot of them have incorporated it into their daily lives.
The strip's colorful imagination and clever writing have made it very popular with both boys and girls. Many adults enjoy watching the original episode or re-runs, since they get a good laugh from watching a character break out in a "Hollywood fashion", only to be trapped by his captors. While there are many reruns, the latest run of Foxtrot has been running for six seasons, which makes it the most popular animated strip in history. Of course, in the early days of animation, many shows never earned over twenty-five percent of the vote when voted on by readers, but Foxtrot has garnered a large following, which is surprising considering that it's a children's cartoon.
In addition to enjoying the strip, many collectors own copies of the original art, which is available through numerous outlets, including online auction sites and through specialty book stores. The popularity of the strip is not limited to children, however. Adults have enjoyed the strips for years, and they have a devoted group of fans who enjoy rereading the strips for fun. The Internet has made it easier for people to enjoy the strip along with the art, since they can simply sit down in front of their computers and look at the strips while they work. For this reason, many websites have created websites where people can go to read about the latest strip and learn more about the world of Foxtrot.
Of course, one of the reasons Foxtrot has lasted so long is that it is a fairly easy read. In addition to the bright colors and unique designs, the reader will also find that the strips are short and precise, and this helps to keep the reader engaged. The action is fast-paced and occurs in less than five minutes per strip, which also contributes to its popularity. Of course, being a short comic, some stories drag a little bit longer. But overall, the strip is very entertaining and easy to follow.
One of the things that makes Foxtrot such a fun strip to follow is the many guest stars that appear throughout each issue. Many famous people have made appearances over the years, and a growing list of people include celebrity appearances in today's strip. There are even a few celebrity families featured as well, including one or two daughters of Richard Nixon and Marilyn Monroe.
Perhaps one of the most popular elements of the strip is the theme song. There are several different versions, with some songs focusing on current events and others dealing with more back-story. And perhaps one of the reasons Foxtrot has lasted so long is that a lot of the humor derives from small-time details, particularly those that deal with everyday people. For instance, one strip features Mickey Mouse sitting at a bus stop, waiting for his turn to ride the school bus. As he sits there, the other passengers begin to get off, and finally, Mickey gets to ride the bus.
The popularity of Foxtrot Comic strips has continued as people have gotten more familiar with it. In fact, many people who would never have given the strips a second glance now have a copy tucked away in their library. While a large portion of the audience has been men, women often enjoy reading the strips as well. It is not uncommon to find young women reading the strips along with their girlfriends or mother's. And many adults read the strips just for entertainment value as well.
