Thimble Theatre 1919
|This is the lowest rating I've given anything here at CBP so far - I felt bad doing it, but you can tell Segar's art still had a ways to go before he was "ready for prime time". Seeing Olive as "The Shimmy Kid" reminds me of a later Thimble Theater strip where she was a dance hall girl and her mean employer made her strap scrub brushes to her feet so she could scrub the floor while she was at it. Today we would call that "multitasking"! In a way that's what she did here, too, although I wasn't sure if she was dancing with that churn tied to her or she just couldn't stop shimmying. This was still a real good hint of things to come, though.|
