This strip created by cartoonist Karl Mueller appeared in the Toronto Sun circa October 1978 to May 1980. Mueller followed it with “Fuddy and Lardette” which lasted till approximately December 1980. The two strips are the same with different names. The name change was probably caused by syndication. Jim Brigham has commented that “Rimmer” was modelled on columnist Toronto Sun Paul Rimstead. Some of the early strips appear to confirm this, but as the strip continued it had less and less to do with journalism.
