Happy Birthday Krazy and Ignatz

It was on this day in 1910 that two famous comic strip characters made their debut in another comic strip. George Herrimen's The Dingbat Family was the starting block for his most famous creations Krazy Kat and Ignatz mouse.

At the bottom of each panel of the Dingbat's family's July 26th offering, another story was taking place, that of a mouse assaulting a cat by throwing something at it's head. This marked the beginning of something special.

George Herriman we salute you! - AA
