Family Computing magazine (#4, December 1983) published an interview with game designer Roberta Williams.


She discusses, in some detail, a children's game that she was then designing based on the syndicated comic strip Family Circus.


This game was presumably never finished/released. 
There was a Family Circus game released in 1992, but the description does not match William's comments.
Has anyone ever heard of this title? Is any additional information available? It is unclear from the article even what platform it was intended for.

They should have called it Family Circus: The Search for Humor! It would be the most challenging game ever made!
