Exclusive Historical Tidbit!

Here is some fabulous material for Krazy Kat, from Michael Tisserand, the authorized biographer of George Herriman, who created the Krazy Kat comic strip.  Enjoy!

“SLIP ME A LITTLE INFORMATION ON WHAT YOU WANT ME TO DO OPERA BALLETS AND I ARE TOTAL STRANGERS HELP.”
 

This was, in part, the text of a November 1920 telegram that cartoonist George Herriman sent to composer John Carpenter, as Carpenter was securing rights to transform Herriman’s masterpiece comic strip “Krazy Kat” into a jazz ballet, which would be staged at The Town Hall in New York City in January, 1922.
