Lynn's Comments: I was always impressed by the amount of patience our dog had with young children. He put up with things I would never have expected him to tolerate. I guess he knew that "puppies" need patience.
Lynn's Comments: Around this time, the newspapers began to colourize the daily strips and often without consulting the cartoonists' own colour charts. This meant mismatched hair colours and different clothing in different papers. One newspaper colourist made the Miss Edwards character Black, which made a change back to caucasian rather difficult. Readers in that area appreciated seeing a Black teacher in the mix. Eventually, correct colour palettes were established, but not before some interesting errors had been made!
Lynn's Comments: This cartoon shows how "motion" can be suggested by not having the wheels of a vehicle touch the ground. If you were to take a piece of tracing paper, trace the outline of the car and move the image down so that the wheels touch the curve of the road, you would instantly see the car standing still. A shadow underneath adds to the illusion. This is one little trick of the trade!
