Keeping Up with the Joneses was a popular comic strip by (Arthur Ragland) "Pop" Momand that ran from 1913 to 1938. The McGinis family -- Aloysius, Clarice, daughter Julie, and housekeeper Belladonna -- attempt to "keep up" with their neighbors, the unseen Joneses. The strip was based on Momand's experiences living in Nassau County, which eventually proved too expoensive for the artist and he moved to Manhattan. Momand's New York Times obituary said that the strip ran from 1916 to 1955. Who knows? Not me -- I haven't bothered to check. One reference on the internet said that Momand dies at age 134. Humph! I think I'll go with a more conservative 100 or 101 (Wikipedia says 100; The New York Times and Comicopedia say 101.)
