It Makes All the Difference in the World

After we posted some of Percy Crosby’s pre-Skippy single panel cartoons a few days ago, we were deluged with emails asking for more. So here are a few more from the early 1920s: two from his “It Makes All the Difference in the World” series and two from “When There’s a Boy in the Family.”

Percy Crosby was a successful cartoonist long before he began Skippy. In the early 1920s he produced many single-panel series with names such as Back o’ the Flats, Three Rooms and Bath,Honeydale—Fifty Minutes Ago (hilarious train commuting gags), Pictures the Weekly Movies Never Got, and so on. His daughter Joan recenty sent us a stack of about one hundred and fifty of these, some of which will be included in our upcoming Skippy series. There’s no way we can print them all, so here are a few samples of Back o’ the Flats to give you a Crosby fix in the meantime.
