Obscurity of the Day: Louie Unt Chakie

Take a dose of Weber and Fields, throw in an acrobat act and a dog act and what do you get? Well, in the case of Louie unt Chakie, not a heck of a lot. William Steinigans must have dreamed up this little series while sitting through an afternoon of vaudeville, and the New York World seems to have had the good sense to banish its appearances to the mono-color inside pages of the Funny Side Sunday section.

The strip ran from August 7 to October 16 1904.

Thanks to Cole Johnson for the scans!
