TMZ — Bil Keane, the man behind the iconic comic strip “Family Circus” died yesterday … he was 89.

“Family Circus” has been in circulation for more than 50 years and is currently featured in roughly 1,500 newspapers. The single panel strip centered around the antics of four young kids, Billy, Dolly, Jeffy and the baby, PJ and their parents.

Keane was working right up to the end … his final “Family Circus” comic is dated October 26th.

Amid articles about Justin Bieber’s pet snake and other odd celebrity related news, TMZ covered the death of Bill Keane, a story that was not as widely covered as Charles Schultz a few years before.
