  1. Wow, I never realized that Buster Brown was such a daring young chap. I though he was just another Corporate Schill sharing hair styles with the Dutch Boy.

  2. Indeed, Buster was quite the rapscallion in his day, as you’ll see. The selling of products was always a big part of his repertoire, however.
