The strip debuted on November 27, 1950. The identical twins, Jan and Jill Jackson, obsessed over make-up, clothes, music, and the opposite gender. Their family included a somewhat clueless Mom and Dad, and their younger brother, Junior, whom they usually referred to as “Termite.” The strip used a continuing story format, but as social issues became more part of real teens’ lives the strip had a hard time making the transition. The strip ended on March 24, 1979.
