    “Ya musn’t forget the fuss that was kicked up in Tennessee about evolution.”

    That means this cartoon is from 1925, the year of the Scopes ‘Monkey Trial’.

    Either that, or right NOW.

    Not necessarily – it’s not the YEAR he was referring to, but Bryan was the lawyer. And Skippy thinks “Bryan = Bryant”, memory tool, remember?

    Looks like the copyright says 1923…MIGHT be a 5.

    According to the Skippy Collection ad to the right Skippy began on June 22 1925, so this one must be some time after that…

    The teeny-tiny copyright date at the bottom right looks to be 1925 to me (after a click on the magnifying glass and a few more enlarges).

    I had looked at this on the right:
    “GoComics is delighted to re-introduce “Skippy.” The legendary comic created by Percy Crosby debuted in 1923 and ran in newspapers until 1945."

    Skippy made his cartoon debut in Life magazine in 1923 (that’s the humor magazine, not the later picture magazine). The comic strip didn’t start until 1925.
