Happy Hooligan
Sometimes popular comic strips inspired vaudeville-type sketches on stage and in film. Such was the case with "Happy Hooligan," Frederick Burr Opper's comic strip, which first appeared in 1900. Happy Hooligan was a mischievous character who was easy to spot because of his tiny tin-can hat. Can you think of any other comic strip characters that have inspired TV shows, movies or books?
