Newlyweds, The by George McManus & Albert Carmichael (1050-) 1st Appearance April 10, 1904 - The Newlyweds were the first married couple creation of George McManus.   The Newlyweds were a gag sunday-only strip which portrayed a sickly-sweet life of marital bliss between the starring couple.   Each week would be a celebration of their love with a dash of sillyness mixed in.  Baby Snookums was added later to gum up the works and give the strip a lift.   McManus originally created the Newlyweds for the Pulitzer syndicate, but would be enticed to jump to Hearst in 1912.   At that point, the named strip was taken over by Albert Carmichael while McManus would continue the antics of the Newlyweds under the title 'Their Only Child'.   Carmichael successfully mimicked the charm that McManus put into the strip until 1917 when he passed away.   The market for Newlyweds is fairly strong.   Collectors navigate to McManus-era color fulls when available, but half-size versions also sell quite well.   Carmichael versions sell almost as well.
