Walt Kelly

Walt Kelly was a cartoonist notable for his characters that inhabited a portion of the Okefenoke swamp in Georgia. The principal characters were Pogo the opossum, Albert, an alligator, Cherchez La Femme (churchy), a turtle, and Ma'mzelle Hepizbah, a skunk.

You may remember what is perhaps the most famous quotation to come from this series: "We have met the enemy, and they is us!" This is typical of the wry and politically astute commentary to be found in the daily and Sunday strip. It was distributed by King Features Syndicate to hundreds of newspapers for many years. The individual strips were collected into at least twenty books, some reprinted editions remain available today.

There was even a claymation[?] movie featuring the antics of those swamp creatures.
