It’s not the first time the Zipster has popped up in another strip.

But back to Mutts. Patrick McDonnell is a true genius. Not only is his strip funny and sweet-tempered, but McDonnell is a playful fellow who loves slipping in sly references to other artists in his Sunday strips.

Here are a couple of his “tribute panels.” Can you recognize the source material?
