Beefer steals the spotlight from Keiki and Andrea...again.note 

There are a lot of crazy people you think wouldn't live in Hawaii, but probably do.
-Peter Paltridge, Platypus Comix Official Collection 4: The Secrets of George Lucas's Fortress of Solitude

Peter Paltridge, the host of Platypus Comix, created Keiki in 2002. The comic features various grade-school age children living in Honolulu, Hawaii, such as Badbutt Beefer Kekoalauliilnapalihauliuliokekoolau, Token Evil Teammate Ivan, Too Clever by Half Keiki Kikilaka (named after the Hawaiian word for "child"), and Cloud Cuckoolander Andrea. The series avoids portraying Hawaii as an island paradise, through its eccentric cast and outrageous occurrences. Paltridge initially wanted this comic to represent the "real" Hawaii, but it seems to have drifted farther and farther away from that premise.

In February 2013, Peter Paltridge announced Peter announced plans to cancel Keiki, and hasn't added any new stories to the series since December 2013.
