    129. How Sluggo Survives (1989).

    Nancy's "boyfriend" Sluggo was a character of some mystery. Cartoonist Ernie Bushmiller depicted Sluggo, a young boy, as living alone in a ramshackle house with no adult supervision. He wore clothes with patches. He had no visble means of support. His "house" was furnished with only the barest necessities. Holes in his walls revealed plaster and lathework. All of which begged a question which became the title of the book promoted: How Sluggo Survives, the second in a series of "theme" collections based on Nancy & Sluggo newspaper comic strips. To make matters worse, Sluggo was a lazy boy, summarized by his sleeping pose ("sawing wood") on this button. Today somebody would call social services, but for decades no one in the neighborhood intervened. The mystery persists. (See also Buttons # 129, 134, 156, 245 and 246. Also see our silk Nancy neckties and Bushmiller postcards.)

    1.25 inch diameter. $4.00

    One note, for serious button collectors, you may want to read the KSP BUTTON TEXT which explains the numbering systems for identifying the various buttons produced over the last 30 years, or see the COMPLETE KSP BUTTON LIST. The list is VERY long, so be patient while it loads.
