The cartoonist, who signed himself just ‘Pinto’ on the feature, was Vance DeBar “Pinto” Colvig. Colvig never hit the bigtime as a cartoonist, but he had other talents up his sleeve. He was a vaudeville actor, a clown, and ultimately made his mark as a voice actor for motion picture cartoons. He was Bluto in the Popeye cartoons, Pluto and Goofy for Disney, among other memorable roles. He even provided the voice for one of the Munchkins in The Wizard of Oz

He also has the distinction of being the very first Bozo the Clown, first on read-along records, then on television.
