The U.S. Postal Service just unveiled a new line of stamps called the Sunday Funnies series.Featured on the new 44-cent stamps are Beetle Bailey, Dennis the Menace, Garfield, Archie and Calvin and Hobbs.

For the creators of these comic strip classics, the honor is something they never could have imagined.

"I was hoping to do a comic strip that became successful enough so that I didn't have to do anything else for a living," said Jim Davis, the creator of Garfield.

The next release from the post office will be on July 27, when Boy Scout stamps go on sale.
