Comics about Babies

A friend is having a baby shower. As a gag I want to get some comic books from the 1950 about talking babies. There was a boy and a girl who babbled (but their babble was turned into dialog in the speech bubble.

Can’t remember the name.

I thought they were Harvey books, but no luck. Maybe ARchie? I don’t think it was Marvel or DC.

Anyone old enough to remember these?

This is best suited to Cafe Society.

Sugar and Spike, by DC?

1956 to 1971 (or maybe 1991)

Baby Huey was a harvey character

Sugar and Spike it is!


Sugar and Spike could talk to one adult: their grandfater, who was in his second childhood.

Sugar and Spike were recently revived as adult private investigators in DC’s *Legends of Tomorrow *anthology miniseries (obviously named after the TV series but tangentially related to it at best). The series will be released soon as a trade paperback. It wasn’t bad, though, of course, it wasn’t the lighthearted delight that the old series was, but it was fun just the same.

It’s a bit pricey at $60, but this hardcover volume reprints the first ten issues of the original Sugar and Spike.

Specifcally, Sugar’s great-great-great Grandpa Plumm. Sugar Plumm and Spike Wilson were neighbors, but they weren’t related.
