Here is where you can read about different ways Pickles are being viewed in the News.
Looking for “There’s a Nap for That” series..I saved two of the three
I am an adaptive technology teacher for the blind/visually impaired and have students who like PICKLES comic strip and would like to be able to read them with their talking screenreading adaptive software.
Do you have any accessible tips for the blind folks to be able to enjoy this and other comic strips??
Look forward to a response!
My favorite Pickles cartoon was a few years back and Earl was filling up his RV at a gas station.
Some dude comes up to him and hands him a 50 dollar bill to fix his turn signal that has been on for the past 15 miles.
The old man says “it isn’t broken” and the dude whacks it with a hammer and says “it is now”……classic!
I would Love to get a copy of that cartoon and give it to a friend of mine who has an RV!
I’m trying to get the March 8, 2011 strip. Hilarious!!!
Is there any why I can send a letter to Brian Crane
Could you please email me a copy of the Pickles cartoon that begins…”You used to be skinnier didn’t you Grampa?” This appeared in the Bay Area News sometime during the past couple of weeks.
It is hard to get into the archives.
looking for the strip about Facebook a few Sundays ago. Hilarious!
My daughter ruined my husbands favorite comic strip and the end is I call it “Christmas Extravaganza”
Why can’t I find this specific strip? Can I get it?
Had a discussion with a coworker about favorite comics and funny and embarassing moments in them.
Was there a comic years ago where Earl was in a community pool and a female asked him about swimming and he said he preferred the breast stroke? Or something of that nature? Earl then realized his slip up and dunk his head in the water.
Would like to be able to pull up a comic from December 2011 – can you please tell me if that’s possible from your web site?
I really enjoy the Pickles cartoons especially the quilting ones. My Husband and I have been married 52 years and relate quite well to the cartoon. I have the Pickles fabric cartoons about quilting and would love to see a book of the Pickles quilting cartoons. Thank you for making it a wonderful day after reading your cartoons.
Could you please send me an email with the strip about Earl getting and I-Pad? I believe it ran within the last 10 days. Thank You, Debbie.
No one writes a great comic strip like Pickles. It is so simple and down to life, especially for us “old timers” it
really makes my day. With all the violence and horrible things going on in the world, this is a fresh breath of spring.
I guess, bottom line, I can really relate to Mr. Pickles.
(This is the third time I have tried to submit this!)
LOVE this comic!! I’ve been searching for the strip you did re: Opal and the thermostat…where she turns it up and then back down…then Earl tells his grandson it’s a fake thermostat…can you tell me when that was printed or help me find a copy please? Thank you!!! And thanks for the laughs!!
Love,love, love Pickles!!!!
My husband and I – both 65 – had the same reaction to the revelation last week that Earl and Opal are close to that same age: you are at least 10 years off. Sixty-five year-olds are not that frumpy and over the hill. Earl and Opal might be 75-year-olds, even 80, but definitely way past mid-60′s.
I’m kinda new to this Pickles strip, well only a couple years…haha but I love it and always look forward to it. My hubby and I have been married 41 years and are just entering into the land of ‘getting older’. Sometimes we crack up at ourselves or each other because of the things we do…which we see in the Pickles cartoons. Love it. I wanta get into the archives but don’t know much how to do that….help.
Thanks, Cindy. The archives on this site aren’t in working order at this time. I have a guy working on this site, but it is still a work in progress.
This is so much like my family it’s unreal.You give me my morning chuckle.
Loved grandma sorting buttons.
I’m trying to find a strip you did a few years ago where Earl and Clyde were in the park and there was someone there with a combover. The combover was blowing in the wind, but you couldn’t see the comboveree — if you know which one I’m talking about, will you post it on facebook?
Carol, it’s extremely time-consuming to try to find strips in the archive unless I know what month or even what year they ran in. If you can give some idea of the publication date I will try to find it for you.
I could not belive when my friend brought me the cartoon last week where the mrs mistook kaboom for hairspray.I did the exact thing the week before the cartoon came out! I was so happy I wasn’t the only one who has done that! Loll
Once again life imitates art!
Can you tell me when “This must be what it feels like to be a man.” ran, please? It was not that long ago, a matter of a few months. Is your archive the only place I can obtain it? I hate to bother you. I cut it out of the Tampa Tribune and have it somewhere in the house but am in the process of moving. I hid it from my husband too because he really hated to see that particular strip. The meat is funnier close to the bone.
Can we buy the’ Earl character in the chair’ anywhere ???
I’m sorry, Margaret. No, that is a one of a kind item. I’ve been getting several requests for it, though, so maybe I should look into getting it manufactured somehow.
I remember a series in which the family made a trip to the Grand Canyon. In that series there is a strip in which Earl is gazing out at the canyon and he declares: “I am totally awed!” Opal replies something on the order of “That’s okay Earl, even odd people can enjoy the view.” Is it possible to obtain a print-out of this particular strip? Does it appear in a “Pickles” book?
I have posted that strip for you on the official Pickles Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/picklescomic?ref=nf
I loved the one i read years ago where they are sitting at a lunch bar and he makes a comment or maybe it was her about the old couple at the end of the bar and the reply was that was a mirror.
I would like to see that cartoon again where they are see a mirror at the end of the lunch bar.
How do I find the one where Earl tells Nelson there are two sides to a happy marriage, one side is right and the other is his?
I think the strip you’re thinking of ran on Nov. 19 of 2012. You can go to the gocomics.com site, find the Pickles page and look up that date in the archive.
My brother-in-law said it first about Pickles, but I agree totally. “The older I get the funnier it gets.”
How do we find the archives??????
I was hoping to find a book of past scrips in the store, but perhaps you could do that next… The comic is GREAT! so real to life!!!
Dear Mr. Crane:
I enjoy your work very much. At an outpatient geriatrics facility where I had previously worked, I donated several of your earlier collected editions to our waiting room, for the patients to read before their appointments. Those books have gone missing (I am sure they got a good, loving home), and I am in the process of rebuilding my personal collection. Could you please advise me if your website has any of your previous books to sell? I was able to replace the first book through Amazon, and I have your last two books, including the one just published. Thank you for your attention to my request.
Louis Verardo, MD
P.S. I am now 63 and am laughing harder than ever at your work; perhaps my advancing age has given me better insights into your characters, especially Earl…
Thanks for your comments, Dr. Verardo. It’s so nice to hear of my book collections finding useful places to call home. I’m sorry some of yours have flown the coop. Unfortunately, I can’t do much to help you. My 2nd, 3rd and 4th books are currently out of print, so I think the only way you could find would be at a used bookstore or garage sale. I know that’s not much help. We are working on trying to get some of those books reprinted, but that doesn’t do you any good right now.
How can I get a copy of the strip which featured the young couple giving Earl vitamins and a gym membership? Opal had told them she would come live with them if anything happened to Earl and they wanted to avoid that happening!
Thanks. Love your strip!
Archives still not working? I am looking for a strip run in 2013 where Earl is asking his friend where he would like to go if anywhere in the world. He says Timbuktu and Earl asks is that real? He thought it was someplace fictional like Kalamazoo. We now live in Kalamazoo so found that very funny. Thanks
I’m looking for the strip where Earl’s friend asks him while sitting on the park bench if he had ever fooled Opal, and he said that he never had, nope, not once. In the last frame, Earl says that it’s not that he hadn’t tried many times!

Dear Mr. Crane,
Many years ago, maybe 20, 25? I saw one of your strips that shows Opal doing origami and Earl smashes it in the end. I would love to get a copy of that strip. How do I do it?
And I can’t find it in the archives, can you please help?
I enjoy this strip so much, it is my #1 fav!
There is an archive at this link: http://www.cartoonistgroup.com/bysubject/subjectsforartist.php?id=94
I’m looking for the Sept.5, 2014 strip about M & Ms.
Yes, it is available.
