Buster Brown, Present at the Creation

Buster Brown, the mischievous little rich kid with a blond pageboy haircut, and his dog Tige became stars of the Sunday comics a century ago. Long after they left the funny pages, the two retained their fame in a new role -- selling shoes. As part of the Present at the Creation series, NPR's Elizabeth Blair has the story on Morning Edition.
