Barney Google (...and Spark Plug) (...and Snuffy Smith) by Billy DeBeck (0060-) 1st Appeared June 17th, 1919 - Barney Google is the ultimate creation of Billy DeBeck, one of the finest humorists ever to spin a cartoon. Barney Google began as a wonderfully drawn gag strip starring Barney and his very funny mule named Sparkplug.  From his first appearance on June 17, 1919 Barney Google became a favorite of the funny pages.   Barney’s main career under Billy DeBeck was as a horse racing enthusiast.   Because of this, Barney was often the dupe for many a racing scheme. This would last for years (this was partly how Sparkplug came into the picture, as a racehorse).    Eventually, Barney's luck would hit rock bottom forcing a getaway to the hills in the mid 1930's and an introduction of Snuffy Smith to the strip.  The change of scenery was accompanied by a decided change in the demeanor of the strip to southern folk satire.   DeBeck got on to proving his versatility in humor for another decade, but sadly, DeBeck died early during the World War II years and Fred Lasswell took over.   Under Lasswell, the strip continued in the southern genre, so much so that Snuffy Smith would eventually takeover the strip.  The Market for Barney Google by Billy DeBeck is moderately strong, especially those featuring Sparkplug.  Color Fulls with Sparkplug from the 1920’s move at a premium quite well. The later Fred Lasswell strips have a thin but loyal following.   Similarly, the early DeBeck dailies sell very well.
