I’m the Guy That Put the Kid in Kidney Stew

Patrick McDonnell pays tribute to Rube Goldberg in today’s Mutts.


I’m the Guy was one of many titles that made up Rube Goldberg’s comic strip. This was at a time when even daily comic strips were given enough room to have companion panels/strips.

In 1912 Rube, with Bert Grant, wrote a song with the title.


More about I’m The Guy from the L.A. Daily Mirror.

More about Rube Goldberg from Paul C. Tumey
(whose timely archives start with April Fool’s strips).
