Happy Hooligan by Frederick Opper (0620-) 1st Appearance March 26, 1900 - The misadventures of Happy Hooligan and his brother Gloomy Gus was one of the legendary highlights of the early days of comics.  Frederick Opper was the early master of action and motion cartooning.   He would give Happy Hooligan the slapstick effect that was previously unseen on the sunday comic page.    Opper was already a very accomplished cartoonist when he created Happy in 1900.   Thankfully he stuck with his prized character for over 30 years until age and failing health finally caught up with the master.    The market for Happy Hooligan pages are quite good.    As was the case with most early strips, they were either offered as halves or fulls.  Both sell fairly well although the Fulls are more desirable.
