The Janet A. Ginsburg Chicago Tribune Collection

Little Joe

In this "Little Joe" cartoon by Ed Leffingwell, a sheriff comes to the Oak Ranch to enlist Utah, the ranch foreman, into helping him. "Little Joe" Oak listens as Utah and the sheriff trade insults. After the sheriff leaves, Utah and Joe go into the ranch house where they meet Mrs. Oak, Joe’s mother. Mrs. Oak expresses her disappointment in Utah for not sending Joe away from the quarreling. Joe pipes in that he is also disappointed that Utah did not have an actual fight with the sheriff.
