Buster Brown and Me

Buster Brown appeared in popular movie comedies four decades before I was born but in Kindergarten I was cast in the class play as Buster Brown, a character I only knew from his still-popular shoes! I was told he had been a fairy tale character and had appeared on radio for years. It was only later on that I learned he had actually been not a fairy tale character at all but a comic strip character in the early years of the twentieth century.

I didn't get a dog out of the deal, by the way.
