Hey, let's go back to 1994. Back when the International Museum of Cartoon Art has moved from its Rye, NY location ...

... to Boca Raton, Florida.
Although the move to Florida was well publicized, the Museum would not see the support and foot traffic it needed to sustain the 52,000 square foot facility.
A couple of years later, Craig Yoe and Mort Walker teamed up for BIG BOY MAGAZINE (it's called a magazine, not a comic book) for an adventure with the Big Boy (a restaurant mascot; the restaurant being where one could pick up a free copy of the BIG BOY MAGAZINE) and Mort Walker's BEETLE BAILEY.

In 2008, Mort Walker's huge collection went to Ohio, to be maintained by The Ohio State University Cartoon Library and Museum.
