Crumbling Paper: The Katzenjammer Kids Want to Be Sailors (strip #12)

Here’s a thoroughly crumbled Rudolph Dirks Katzenjammer Kids strip I scanned from August 9th, 1903.

Please note that this strip contains offensive racial depictions… if that sort of thing offends you, you may not want to view it.

  1. Thank you so much for the scanned old comic strips.
    My husband & I got such a kick out of them, since I just discovered the K. kids. Had named two of my boys Fritz and Hans (they are in their 20’s now), without knowing about this strip. Am going to e-mail your site to them – just for fun. Thanks again.
