Beetle Bailey (begun on September 4, 1950) is an American comic strip created by cartoonist Mort Walker. It is set on a fictional United States Army post. In the years just before Walker's death in 2018 (at age 94), it was among the oldest comic strips still being produced by its original creator. Over the years, Mort Walker had been assisted by (among others) Jerry Dumas, Bob Gustafson, Frank Johnson and Walker's sons Neal, Brian and Greg Walker. After Mort Walker's death in 2018, his granddaughter Janie Walker-Yates and her husband Mike Yates began illustrating the strip.

Bunny Piper—Was Beetle's seldom-seen girlfriend (from 1959), before he started dating Miss Buxley. Buzz—Was Beetle's girlfriend before 1959. Canteen (early 1950s) —always eating. Snake Eyes (early 1950s) —the barracks gambler, replaced by Cosmo, Rocky, and others. Big Blush (early 1950s) —tall, innocent, and a great attraction to the girls; many of his characteristics incorporated into both Sarge and Zero. Fireball (early 1950s) —neophyte who always seems to be in the way; forerunner of both Zero and Lt. Fuzz. Bammy (early 1950s) —the southern patriot from Alabama who is still fighting the Civil war. Dawg (early 1950s) —the guy in every barracks who creates his own pollution. Ozone (late 1950s) —Zero's bigger, even more naïve friend. Moocher (early 1960s) —stingy and always borrowing things. Pop (1960s)—married private: gets yelled at by Sarge all day and goes home at night for more abuse from his wife. Sergeant Webbing—variously described as being from either B Company or D Company. He somewhat resembles Snorkel, except that he lacks the trademark wrinkles in Snorkel's garrison cap, and has wavy hair and thick eyebrows. He has pointy teeth. On at least two separate occasions, Webbing engaged Sgt. Snorkel in a cussing duel. He also attempted to one-up Snorkel in anthropomorphizing dogs, leading to Otto's first appearance in uniform, and was most recently seen (recognizably, but not mentioned by name) in 1983. Rolf (early 1980s) —civilian tennis instructor, very popular with the female cast (including both Mrs. Halftrack and Miss Buxley, much to the General's consternation). Originally introduced in response to complaints about the constant ogling of Miss Buxley by the male characters. First appearance was in the September 9, 1982 strip, disappeared completely by the mid-1980s. The early strip was set at Rockview University. When Beetle joined the Army, all of the other characters were dropped (although both incarnations of the strip include a spectacled intellectual named Plato). Four characters from the original cast (Bitter Bill, Diamond Jim, Freshman, and Sweatsock) made at least one appearance, in the January 5, 1963 strip.
