Retro Comics -- The Flibbertys

Usually I am able to find entries on Wikipedia about retro comics. This one, The Flibbertys has no Wiki entry. There is not a lot of information about it on the web. I did find one site:

and this is what they had to say:

"Born in New York, Ray Helle worked in the type design department of Mergenthaler Linotype. He attended the Pratt Institute and did free lance gag cartoons until 1941. He served in Europe during the War. He continued to do gag cartoons until 1954. He created the strips 'The Flibbertys' and 'Box Seat' for the Chicago Tribune. He self-syndicated the strip 'Sam & Ellie'. He also did 'Pet Parade' and 'Life With Lucky' for the National Enquirer. He semi-retired in 1989."
