Obscurity of the Day: Stumble-Toe Joe

Once again I turn to that seemingly endless source of obscurities, the Boston Herald. Today we'll cover Stumble-Toe Joe, which was sort of Bert Cobb's B-feature, his headliner act being Ambitious Teddy. The plot of Stumble-Toe Joe was pretty basic -- the tall skinny consumptive-looking kid has two left feet and hilarity ensues (well, barely) when he missteps. Krazy Kat it ain't.

Stumble-Toe Joe ran in the W.E. Haskell-copyrighted Boston Herald Sunday comics section from April 21 to August 18 1907.

More about the Boston Herald tomorrow...
