    “We call cash dough because we kneads it all the time.” I never knew that.

    Think fire bell at the fire station.
    In your room next to your bed.
    Some of those early alarm clocks were like that.
    No buzz, no music, just CLANG, CLANG, CLANG.
    No over sleeping then but hope your heart is strong.

    Of course the Yellow Kid predates them all.

    Notice the stereotype of the pawn broker.
    Name and demeanor.
    Prevalent back in those days.

    Buzza Wuzza, you’ll see similar “action” from pictures on the wall in “Bringing Up Father.”

    Trivia question:

    What was the Yellow Kid’s name? ( Yes, he had one. )
