The Dropouts

The Dropouts was a comic strip created by Howard Post and was syndicated by United Features Syndicate from 1968 to 1981.

The strip was started, according to Post, as a result of his anger over his adventure strip Anthro being rejected; the premise of The Dropouts was the classic "stranded on a desert island" gag. The two main characters, Alf and Sandy were indeed castaways, but the island they're on is hardly deserted; one of the strips' running gags was how closely the natives' society resembled Western civilization. The other characters included a one-man police force, a doctor, and a chef running a cafe (his food is inedible); all natives. There were other Western characters, including a religious zealot, an angry feminist, and a dishevled alcoholic named "Chugalug".
