Milt Gross (1895-1953) was a celebrated cartoonist and animator. He is also known for his screwball humor, mixing Yiddish in with the English. Many of Gross's books are still available from Amazon. I recommend his 1930 graphic novel in pantomime, HE DONE HER WRONG, and Craig Yoe's collection of Gross's comic book work from the forties, THE COMPLETE MILT GROSS COMIC BOOKS AND LIFE STORY (2010).
I found these pages online. Thank you to the anonymous scanner.
