Obscurity of the Day: Dummydom
Dummydom's main characters are those wooden puppets with strings that make their limbs move. I know there must be a term for these -- not marionettes I suppose because these aren't nearly that complex and they have a base to keep them vertical. Anyhow, Rigby got some good mileage out of these and other types of toys making guest appearances. Sort of Toy Story for the turn-of-the-century crowd.
The feature ran in the World from November 25 1900 to May 5 1901.
Thanks to Cole Johnson for the scans!
Maybe Rigby had sold cartoons to the Herald some time in advance, and only began using them at the same time as thw World did.Post a Comment
