Betty Boop with Henry

Henry speaks! In his only cartoon appearance, from 1935:

And yes, he sounds like Mae Questel.

Henry turns seventy-eight next month. He’s still working in the funny papers, a beautifully drawn anachronism.

[Henry, February 19, 2010.]

Someday I’d like to live in a city where the sidewalks have plank walls behind them.
