Flowers left for R. Outcault
There is a particular Yellow Kid picture that I love which shows him in mid-foamy beer toast. Written on his shirt is: "Here's a health to de ladies dey are all a peech see!" Well, here's one to you, too, Mr. Outcault! You ain't so many, but you sure do beat the goat (which is hard to beat)! True fans and yourself know exactly what I mean. Thanks for Mickey "Yellow Kid" Dugan and Liz, Poor Li'l Mose, Buster Brown, "yellow journalism", the first character merchandising boom, and the genesis of the recurring comic strip character. In a very real way, you layed a few key bricks on our road into the 20th Century. So, here's to R.F. Outcault, see!
