    (January 20, 1944- )
    Born in Brooklyn, New York
    Created the comic strip 'Zippy the Pinhead' (1976)
    Contributed cartoons to the National Lampoon, the New Yorker, the Village Voice and the New York Times
    Designed Wacky Packages trading cards for Topps
    So many people find the strip incomprehensible that the official Zippy web site has an 'Understanding Zippy in Six Easy Lessons' tutorial.
    He feuded with Dilbert creator Scott Adams.
    He said, 'Some people believe I'm stupid or possibly mentally retarded. I have no comment on this.'
    Zippy is one of the few underground comics to achieve mainstream success.
    Zippy's catchphrase 'Are we having fun yet?' was added to Bartlett's Familiar Quotations.
    R. Crumb called Zippy 'by far the very best daily comic strip that exists in America.'
    He said one of his favorite comics is Bil Keane's Family Circus: 'The other really surreal strip on the comics page.'
