I can't even see the country you were born in! It's too small and I can't get it to get bigger!

I know which comic strips you are talking about, but I can't remember what they're called.

I can't see and/or enlarge the map to view the correct color of the country you're born in.

As for the comic strip under B, I think it's called either Blondie or Family Circus? I forget the exact name of the comic strip.

Oh, this is hard! I have no idea where you were born. And I don't know what those countries have in common. Is Micronesia even a country? Let me think about this for awhile. I only know the answer to useless trivia, like Indiana Jones' first name was Henry. And Alexander and Cookie are Dagwood and Blondie Bumstead's kids in the comic strip Blondie. Chip, Dot, Ditto and Trixie are from the Hi and Lois comic strip.

Hi Carol! It's me again. I don't know if this is an 'unusual distinction', but does it have to do with their flags? They are all blue and white.

I agree with the others who said "Blondie" and "Hi and Lois" as the comic strips with the kids you list.
And I also think that Henry was Indiana Jones's first name (called "Junior" by his father; "Indiana" was their dog).
Do the 6 countries mentioned have a similar flag? colors of the flag? Design or lack of design in their flag? That's the only thing that comes to mind.

Number 3: their flags are all blue and white! Had to answer that one from here in Finland!
