Obscurity of the Day: Young Teddy

Continuing on our week of Frank King posts, here is Young Teddy, which ran in the Chicago Tribune Sunday section from September 10 1911 to October 6 1912. The premise was very simple — Teddy tries to train an animal and things don’t go well. Memorable it wasn’t, but then just how much could King do with these single tier strips that the Tribune liked to use on the inside pages? Way back then, after all, newspapers hadn’t figured out that they can print their strips at microscopic size.

Thanks to Cole Johnson for the scans!
