Grace Drayton was the first female Hearst Syndicate cartoonist, though she did go through other early syndicates as well, most noticeably the Philadelphia North American Company, where she created “The Turr’ble Tales of Kaptain Kiddo.”
Toodles was a little girl who stumbled into mischief around the house or in the vicinity of an adult, who would suffer for it and/or give out a punishment. Kiddo was a little boy who told incredible stories, involving himself and monsters, storybook and even Greek mythology characters, by way of narration running under each panel. Grace loved these characters and formats, returning to them again and again.
