The Boys Think They Have One on Foxy Grandpa, but He Fools Them (1902)

Foxy Grandpa was popular enough in 1902 to be in a series of short films (1902 AMB mutoscopes, preserved by the Library of Congress). I imagine this is very likely to be the first adaptation of a comic strip to the screen… hard to say, though, since old film has fared even worse than old newsprint. Beats the hell out of the Garfield movies.
