Andy Capp and Hagar the Horrible
and their mother-in-laws

Among the scores of comic and cartoon strips, Andy Capp and Hagar the Horrible, lovable as they seem, are the only two leading characters with long-suffering wives who can scarcely tolerate their good-for-nothing husbands and yet cook and clean up for them. Brave women, Flo and Helga. Both Andy and Hagar also have a running feud with their mother-in-laws who would like nothing better than to see the girls dump their men—with good reason!
