“Lum and Abner” Rerun #154!

“Dinnamite Lum” – Chapter 1
I hoped to send a message with this strip in 2014.
Snake Hogan is depicted as “the town bully” in the original Lum and Abner radio shows. Washington, a character in the first Lum and Abner movie Dreaming Out Loud (1940) never met Snake Hogan in that film and was not included in the radio show.
I wondered, “How might Snake Hogan react to this African-American kid?”

    1. Thank you! Washington and Jimmy were depicted as best buddies in the 1940 movie. Jimmy comes close to death from pneumonia and Washington makes a suggestion that helps save his life.
