Official Pickles Comic Strip Website
Here is where you can read about different ways Pickles are being viewed in the News.
looking for the strip where he covers his whole pie with whip cream and you can’t see the pie????
Is it possible to get a copy of the “Never underestimate the value of an afternoon nap, Nelson.” strip that ran on or about January 16, 2009?
I am looking for a copy of some comic strips when Earl wears a belt and suspenders. It ran in my local paper in June of 2012.
My wife and I are senior citizens and live with a daughter and her 10 year triplets. Pickels is always a high lite of our day. Here is a true story. I was watching TV, my wife in the other room.She called out “What time is it?” Without thinking, I replied “You mean now?” The grand kids think it is the funniest thing they ever heard. Senior citizens certainly make great fodder for humor.
Ha! Thanks, John. I love it.
I need a copy of the comic where Pearl finds her husband on the couch napping & throws a blanket over him. He yells “I’m not dead!” I want my husband to see it!!
Her name isn’t Pearl, it’s Opal.
I’m looking for the cartoon where Opal and Earl are teaching Nelson to aim at Cheerios.
You can go to http://www.gocomics.com/pickles
There is an archive there where you can search for past strips by subject.
Why isn’t Pickles published in book form anymore? I would be buying them for myself and to give away as gifts.
It is published in book form. Check on Amazon.com or request in your bookstore. There have been 7 anthologies published so far, and number 8 will be out in October.
Where can I find the strip where Earl hears Opal say “I love you”, Earl says “That is the wine talking” and Opal responds “I was talking to the wine”?
Sorry. I’ve never used that line in a strip.
Having trouble finding the one where Earl is on a park bench with another old guy and he says “windy day isn’t it?” Do you know that one? Probably about 10 years ago? Thank you
Is it possible to obtain a particular favorite comic strip signed by you? One of the many Pickles panels I love is the one in which Earl tells his grandson that he loves music, but only good music. I’ve sent emails wth that strip to countless friends and would love to have a signed copy to frame and hang up. Thanks.

As a rehab provider I know the benefit to the public your strip has played in public awareness of issues related to aging, and aging and the brain. I compliment and appreciate your story line of Earl and Opal and your use of humor to gently discuss these issues of aging and the brain.
I’d like to keep your comic strip and this story line alive and to this end I am seeking your permission (and advice on the best method to identify specific strips on that include references to the brain, or memory, or aging brains) to use this strip story line electronically as a medium to use in a power point presentation to teach about aging, brain injury, and the perspectives of family and friends. I envision using your comic strip as the visual image, as means to teach about areas of the brain involved in brain injury and aging.
Thank you very much for your consideration,
I want to let you know that “Pickles” is my husband’s first and only comic strip. He looks forward to it everyday. Rarely a day goes by that he says, “You gotta see what Earl did/said today.” I believe he identifies with Earl and often quotes some of Earl’s witty remarks. Unfortunately, our local paper, the Statesman Journal, has omitted the Sunday “Pickles.” Lynn is upset enough, that he has threatened to cancel our subscription! Thank you again for your wonderful comic strip.
Really enjoy your comic strip and often share it with my mom and dad who get a big kick out of it. Wondering if you might be publishing a daily calendar? My dad would love that. Thank you
Sorry. We don’t have any calendars.
Mr.Crane: Pickles is one of our favorite cartoons in the Canton Repository. Recently a friend on Facebook posted a cartoon in which Brian was repeatedly singing his “no habla espanol” version of Feliz Navidad (Mommy Dot…Dah Dah Dah Dotta Dotta… I don’t know when the cartoon was originally published but we would love to have a copy of that strip. Thank you for this wonderful cartoon!
For years I’ve kept the cartoon on my hard disk in which Earl enumerates the many grandparents Nelson has and Nelson ends the cartoon by remarking that “peer pressure is nothing like ancestor pressure.” How can I get permission to have this strip repeated in a genealogy newsletter I receive, one written by Richard Eastman https://blog.eogn.com/?
It’s okay to reproduce it as long as it’s not for commercial purposes and you don’t alter the text or artwork in any way.
I just had another Pickles moment. I walked into the bedroom and there was toilet paper strung between pieces of furniture and on the floor. I asked my husband why he had toilet papered our bedroom. His reply: I was putting on a new roll and it fell the wrong way and got wet. So I’m drying it out. 😳 Now I wonder if he plans to use it when it’s dry. 🤔
Thanks for your comic strip. It’s great!
Wonderful story! Thanks for sharing.
Thank you for keeping us laughing everyday… I would like to know how grandma and grandpa would handle a fender-bender… God bless you and your family!
