Here’s an example I scanned of Foxy Grandpa from 1905 by Bunny (Carl Edward Schultze). In spite of being one of the best known comics of its era according to Don Markstein’s Toonopedia, looking at Amazon it appears that there hasn’t been a reprint book of Foxy Grandpa since 1916. Foxy Grandpa is kind of like a reverse of the Katzenjammer Kids… instead of the kids getting Foxy Grandpa’s goat, he puts on a goat suit and dances a jig and scares the hell out of them. I’ll be posting Foxy Grandpa examples here for the next couple of weeks.
