For three weeks in the fall of 1904, the cartoonist Jarrant (?) treated the world to the sleepy-time adventures of Dreamy Dave. That should have been the end of the story, but for some inexplicable reason, the prolific Charles Wellington decided to resurrect the feature in the spring of 1905. Wellington took Dave out of the bedroom, away from naps, and cursed him with living daydreams that have the power to overtake him at any given time. Once the boy nods off, watch out because chaos is about to ensue in the form of lazy gags and racial stereotypes. Dreamy Dave would live out this waking nightmare for a few more months, before finally drifting off for good in June of 1905. We have most of the strips, but are missing a few of the final outings…I guess for now we can only dream of what laughs they might contain.
New Strip! Dreamy Dave!
