Boob McNutt by Rube Goldberg  (0130-) 1st Appearance  May 1915 - Rube Goldberg’s Boob McNutt first appeared in the funny papers in May of 1915. From the beginning it was obvious that Goldberg was a master of action cartooning. Goldberg was the father of Slapstick cartooning and Boob McNutt was the vehicle for showing this off.   Boob was largely a comedy gag strip. He would take turns through some continuity stories which included his marriage and some run-ins with wife’s father. Inspite of these, Ruge Goldberg kept true to his weekly gag mentality.  Rube Goldberg made his way in to common phrasiology through the companion strip 'Bill' on the Boob McNutt full-size pages.  The public would be introduced to Goldberg's flair for goofy inventions and animals through the Boob McNutt's Ark and the character Professor Butts.   To this day, 'doing a Rube Goldberg' has common meaning for inventing a much-too-complicated solution for a problem.   The market for Boob McNutt is somewhat weak inspite the obvious quality of the strip.  Full-size pages are a must with the demand for smaller versions very slim.   Surprisingly, less than full-color pages actually sell reasonably well at modest discount, probably due to the appeal of the classic Goldberg artwork style that many try to model from.
