The other day when looking around on the net, something caught my eye and took me back to being a little girl again - a comic strip that I used to read. Here is handsome, dapper, brave Smilin' Jack. I kind of think he probably was pretty well pleased with himself, also.
Now this is the fellow who stuck out in my mind and I couldn't for the life of me remember his name. All I could remember was the chicken always there always ready to catch the button that popped off his shirt. So I did some more searching and, lo and behold, his name is Fat Stuff!
I don't remember Dixie, but do remember Jack's "hill billy mechanic" Rufus Jimpson.
Here's Jack in his goggles - just as handsome as ever. Note that the strip started in the Chicago Tribune in December of 1933. Long, long ago. I probably was reading it in the late 30's and early 40's. Lots of fun old comic strips back then - will look one up once in a while if folks enjoy this sort of thing.
