The Sunday "topper" for Dirks was ''Hawkshaw the Detective'' (drawn by Gus Mager), a parody of SherlockHolmes with monkeys while the Knerr strip had ''Dinglehoofer Und His Dog Adolph''. Adolph was replaced by [[SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute "Schnappsy"]] because [[AdolfHitler of some guy down in Germany]]. The Katzes themselves were briefly renamed to ''The Shenanigan Kids'' (Hans and Fritz became two Dutch boys named "Mike" and "Aleck") because of anti-German sentiment during UsefulNotes/WorldWarI.

In 1914, after a series of nasty legal battles, Rudolph Dirks quit the Hearst organization and started a new version of his comic, featuring his same characters but renamed ''The Captain and the Kids'' for the rival Pulitzer chain, eventually distributed by the United Feature Syndicate. Dirks would continue to draw ''The Captain and the Kids'' through the 1950s, after which his son John took over until that strip ended in 1979. Meanwhile, the original ''Katzenjammer Kids'' strip continued under the pen of Harold H. Knerr until 1949 and a succession of artists afterwards. Hy Eisman drew the strip until 2006, being run weekly in reprints to this day.

* EarlyInstallmentWeirdness: The first years of the strip were drawn in a completely different art style than the more cartoony approach that the strip would settle into. The Captain was also absent for the first five years (with an unnamed father figure being in his steed, and even he abruptly vanished from the comic before the Captain's introduction) and there were three Katzenjammer Kids instead of two.
