Comic Strip of the Week - Saved by the Goat

Scarlet was a fairly self-reliable character. Unlike most female characters who found themselves in peril, she seldom needed to depend on a man for rescue. Though she did get help from other sources. In this early strip from August 1940, Scarlet (a Chicago native) receives aid from a billy goat. It is not known if it is this same goat who would go on to curse the Chicago Cubs organization five years later.
