Characters and story
Shortly afterward, the wry and bossy household maid was given the name Hazel, along with employment at the Baxter household. Peter Key recalled, "He picked the name Hazel out of the air, but there was an editor at ''The Post'' who had a sister named Hazel. She thought her brother came up with the name, and she didn’t speak to him for two years."<ref name=nyt/>
 
The cartoon ran untilweekly in the weekly''The Post'' until the magazine ceased publication in 1969. ''Hazel'' was then picked up for daily newspaper syndication by [[King Features Syndicate]]. Key continued to draw ''Hazel'' until his retirement in 1993.<ref>{{cite web
