Buster Brown is a U.S. comic strip created in 1902 by Richard Felton Outcault, and the name of the comic's protagonist, a mischievous young boy who gets regularly spanked for his pranks by his mother, Ma.
Other characters are Buster's sister Mary Jane and his dog Tige. Tige is thought to be the first talking pet to appear in American comics, and, like that of many of his successors, his speech goes unnoticed by adults.
The comic strip began in the New York Herald on May 4, 1902. Outcault left for William Randolph Hearst's employ in 1906, and after a court battle, Outcault continued his strip, now nameless, in Hearst papers, while the Herald continued their own version of Buster Brown with other artists. The latter lasted until 1911 or so, and the former until at least 1921.
