Creators Gary Delainey and Gerry Rasmussen first collaborated on the comic strip Bub Slug in 1976. The character of Betty appeared in the strip, but was not seen regularly until 1985, when the Edmonton Journal began running a full-page weekly comic version of Bub Slug. Betty became a stand-alone strip in 1991.
