 FWIW, I think Doug Wilson's bracketing makes good sense.  In my own
childhood  (30s  & early 40s) "funny papers" was being supplanted by
"funnies" and later still began to be overtaken by "comics." For maximum
impact SYFP would have had to begin life while "funny papers" was still the
dominant expression, otherwise it would have seemed dated.
