That's My Pop by Milt Gross  (1440-) First appearance 1929 -  That's My Pop was just one of the many grand strips created by master funny cartoonist Milt Gross.   This offering features a rotund pop who is in a never-ending search for the next scam, always trailed behind and observed by his son who always splurted 'That's my Pop!' in the final panel.    The strip fit the great depression to a great extent.  Pop's scams were usually around finding a job, something that many folks of the era could sympathize with.   Other scams would see Pop getting meals or finding his way into shows and baseball games.   Of course Pop's success rate was usually as good as the reason for the scam.   If it was for his own benefit, pop's scams usually ended in failure and sometimes a chase by the local policeman.   If it was for the benefit of his son, then somehow the scam would actually work.  Regardless of how it turned out, the strip usually carried plenty of action and physical humor, a trademark of all of Milt Gross' strips.   The market for That's My Pop is very good as is all Milt Gross Offerings.  Printed as Tabs or smaller, these are very hard to keep in stock.
