Says HURRAH to Express Happiness

HURRAH is a cry of happiness that usually comes from cheering fans in a crowd, but occasionally, Dad yells it to cheer for himself and even Herbie. Needless to say, Dad's spirit is soon crushed.

YAY is often heard at the same time as HURRAH, and by itself in just two stories, both from cheering fans. Despite the occasional YIPPEE or ZOWIE, there's not a lot of exclamations of happiness to be heard in Herbie comics.

Index terms: emotion, interjection, exclamation,, Richard E. Hughes, Ogden Whitney
