Eek & Meek was an American gag-a-day comic strip by Howie Schneider which ran from 1965 to 2000, syndicated by Newspaper Enterprise Association.[2]

The strip featured the foibles of the two title characters. Eek, an aggressive alcoholic, was always seen with a bowler hat and a beard stubble. Meek was his timid sidekick. Supporting characters included Meek's love interest, Monique, rebellious kid Luvable and his friend Freaky.

The characters began as anthropomorphic mice, but morphed into humans as of the February 8, 1982, strip.[3]
