Dell Publishing's "The Funnies" Part 6
Foxy Grandpa was the Whack-a-Mole of comic strips. Schultze produced it for syndicate after syndicate, and every time a syndicate editor gave it the axe it would, sooner or later, pop up elsewhere. This, however, would be it's last appearance in anything approaching a newspaper. Schultze lived until 1939, though, and supposedly worked for awhile in the fledgling comic book industry -- I wouldn't be at all surprised if Foxy Grandpa made its last stand in the funnybooks.
