Carl Barks, known for most of his life as "The Good Duck Artist," is, of course, known best for his work on Donald Duck. Most notably, he created Uncle Scrooge. He's one of the best and most important comic book artists of all time.
So I was genuinely surprised to see that Barks did some work on the perpetually melancholy dog, Droopy, for Our Gang Comics back in the day. What's more, this was when Droopy was called "Happy Hound," and he was brown.
So that was also surprising to me: that he was ever anything other than a white dog named Droopy who stood on his hind legs. (Happy Hound seems able to do so, but spends a lot of time on all fours.)
