    These “updates” are getting out of hand. Any day now, we’ll see Mutt and Jeff dancing Gangnam style.

    @Sherlock Watson

    Will Jeff be trying to romance Miley ?

    I thought “Mutt & Jeff” was discontinued before Tom Cruise became famous.

    I’m sure this was originally published before Tom Cruise was born!!

    This one is clearly from the 30’ or 40’s, so yes, the Tom Cruise reference is a mistaken attempt to make it more relevant.

    Mutt may find that throwing out his own personal radio does not prevent broadcasts.

    Reminds me of the fellow who shot his TV because he didn’t like the guy on the screen.

    I wonder who the movie star was in the original.

    That set-up starts with the lineage of specialty potatoes.

    My guess is the original celebrity would have been someone along the lines of Elmer Davis or Edward R. Murrow, (or a young Walter Cronkite), thereby setting up the punch line of "You cant marry him – he’s just a commentator (common ’tater).

    That’s an image I don’t need today…or any day…

    My guess would be Clark Gable, although it could have been any actor of the era.

    A better guess would be Walter Winchell, who was probably the nation’s leading “common tater” of that day.

    Me too! How gorgeous do you have to be to rate as a radio pin-up?
