The series premiered in 1904 titled The
Newlyweds, but was retitled a few times when the creator changed
publisher. The series on this page began in 1912 featuring the
same main characters. Stopped in 1916.
The series bears clear resemblance to Rosie's
Beau especially in drawing style. It is a humouristic strip
featuring a married couple named Newlywed and their only child,
a rather spoiled baby called Snookums.
