Obscurity of the Day: Midge and Madge

I know what you're thinking ... will this guy ever run out of Katzenjammer Kids rip-offs? Well, sure, someday, but you probably shouldn't hold your breath. Midge and Madge is Sidney Smith's entry in the Katzie clone derby, and it ran sporadically from February 28 1904 to May 20 1906 in the Philadelphia Inquirer Sunday section. Sidney injects a half-hearted bit of originality by making the two little hellions female. Ho-hum. Let's see ... something nice to say. Oh, yeah. Pretty funny cow. Yep. Something more interesting tomorrow, I promise.
