* DisembodiedEyebrows: Discussed. Annoyed that his guest-star, Happy Hooligan, is overreacting to everything, suggests a more subtle response, such as raising an eyebrow. Happy complies by raising the eyebrow so high that it pops off his forehead and floats in mid-air. Sam is ''not'' amused.

In some ways, this was where the strip ended; in some ways, it ''wasn't''. In 1977, Dumas and Walker relaunched the strip as ''Sam and Silo''. While it kept the two main characters, it abandoned the original concept. Sam and Silo were now a pair of bumbling police officers in a [[TheAndyGriffithShow Mayberry]]-like town. While this wasn't as imaginative or unique, it was far more popular; as of 2010, ''Sam and Silo'' is ''still'' being produced and published.

* {{Cancellation}}



* OldShame: Dumas always hated how he drew the Assistant in the original run, and liked the ''Sam and Silo'' version much better.

* MauveShirt: While most of the cameos were one-time apperances, [[KrazyKat Ignatz the Mouse]] and Happy Hooligan showed up so often that they both qualify as this.

'''Sam's Strip''' was a comic strip created by Mort Walker (of ''BeetleBailey'' fame) and Jerry Dumas. It originally ran from 1961 to 1963, but was later retooled and brought back in 1977 (more on that later).

* CrossOver: Sam and Silo both in ''BeetleBailey'' as a pair of beggars. This was between the cancellation of ''Sam's Strip'' and the launch of ''Sam and Silo''.

Sadly, life imitated art. Although loved by cartoonists and comics aficionados, ''Sam's Strip'' was just ''too'' experimental to catch on with the general public. The series was cancelled after three years.

Although the original incarnation is long gone, it's left enough of an impression on its readers to be remembered fondly and earn itself a page on this wiki (woo hoo!).
