Hejji by Dr. Seuss (Theodor Seuss Geisel) (0640-) 1st Appearance April 7, 1935 - Hejji was an early creation of Theodor Geisel (Dr. Seuss) and his only venture into the sunday comics pages.   Hejji was a young apprentice Genie in the land of Baako.   Hejji's extraordinary adventures were short-lived(the strip only lasted about a dozen weeks) and marvelous.  In these pages Dr. Seuss was already introducing us to his wonderful talent for creating unusual and delightful creatures.  Hejji and his master "The Mighty One" would meet many an odd creature like Bearded Bees, Wombats, and the great Pitzu bird.  All of these would be encountered in the attempt to impress the object of "Mighty One"'s love, "The Fair One".  Unfortunately, as the legend goes, Seuss was let go during great depression job cuts by William Randolph Hearst.   Of course Seuss would later go on to create his extraordinary children's books including Cat in the Hat, and The Grinch that stole Christmas.    Hejji pages are some of the rarest and most sought-after on the comic-strip market.   Printed exclusively as Tabs and only carried in a few newspapers, their rarity is as great as the popularity of their creator.  As a result, each and every page carries the highest premium.
