Uncle Wiggily's Adventures, 1926
'Uncle Wiggily's Adventures', 1926.

Lansing "Lang" Campbell was the artist of 'Uncle Wiggily's Adventures', which started in 1910 and was written by Howard R. Garis. Originally called 'Uncle Wiggily's Bedtime Stories', this series about an elderly rabbit was presented as a text comic, with the text underneath the pictures. This form was relinquished in 1925, and replaced by speech balloons. In the early 1930s, Campbell created a few strips of his own: 'Piggy Pigtail', 'Paddy the Pup', 'Dippy Doodlebug', 'Bizzy Izzy Humbug', 'The Dinky Ducklings', 'Duck and Applesauce' and 'Dicky Bird's Diary'. Suzanne Shaub once announced that she would write a book on Campbell's life and work.
