The Cricket was a science fiction fanzine by Betsy Curtis and Ed Curtis.

The Cricket was notable for being the earliest fanzine Betsy and Ed Curtis' THE CRICKET, June '49, quoted Walt Kelly on the masthead ("You plays cricket, drinks tea, and lifs the pinky when you holds the cup...") and remarked inside on the editors' large collection of Pogo strips and other work by Kelly, such as his political cartoons from the New York Star. The Curtises later got a place in the strip, as "Uncle Regular Curtis", the mail-carrying duck.
