Obscurity of the Day: Brick Bodkin's Pa
The strip might not have been a reader favorite, but Hurd must have thought a lot of it. When he left the Herald to start his own animation studio, Brick Bodkin had a name change to Bobby Bumps and he starred in a series of primitive animated cartoons. For more about Bobby Bumps see this post.
It's interesting that "Brick" doesn't really resemble Bobby Bumps, but "Brick"'s Pa looks very much like Bobby's dad. Thanks for running these strips, I've never seen a complete Earl Hurd comic page before.Post a Comment
