'''''Snuffy Smith''''' is a long-running newspaper comic about a hillbilly community. It originally began in 1919 as ''Barney Google'', about a diminutive sportsman involved primarily in horse races. The strip reached mainstream popularity in TheRoaringTwenties with the introduction of Barney's horse Spark Plug; The strip sparked a trend for continuity-laden comics such as 'Toots and Casper'' and ''Tillie the Toiler'', while "Sparky" became a popular nickname for boys (including future cartoonist [[ComicStrip/{{Peanuts}} Charles Schulz]]), and a song about the title character and his "goo-goo-googly eyes" became a smash hit in 1923.
