Obscurity of the Day: Extraordinary Adventures of Joseph, James and John
In The Extraordinary Adventures of Joseph, James and John, Bartholomew sends a trio of kids out on a round-the-world adventure in episodes that often fail to make any discernible sense at all. Although Bart was a passing good cartoonist, he was hopeless at the writing end. In the second sample above, you can also see that he was no slave to continuity, either, because the three boys are now three men. Or maybe it was just a REALLY long trip, I dunno.
The series ran from December 2 1906 to April 14 1907.
