Earlier in this sequence (see Day 7), Scancarelli had a round-up of cats from various comic strips. In day 16, he presents a round-up of police officers. But they're not quite the ones I had anticipated. Although he's referenced Krazy Kat several times in this story arc, Officer Pup isn't among the assembled.
And there's something else. Pepsi and Pete, the Pepsi-Cola Cops were advertising characters created by Pepsi-Cola. Their comic strip (a Pepsi ad), did run in the newspapers alongside other comics. But they're of a different sort than the other characters featured in this sequence.
