Bringing Up Father
He remembered it years later, when, after a string of well-received comics for the Pulitzer papers including, among others, Nibsy the Newsboy and The Newlyweds , he was working for King Features and needed a theme for a new strip. On January 12, , he debuted Bringing Up Father, about an Irishman named Jiggs, who doesn't understand why his ascension to wealth via the Irish Sweepstakes means he can't hang out with his friends, and his nagging, social-climbing wife, Maggie. The strip was an instant hit, possibly because of its combination of an appealing cast of characters with a unique look of art-nouveau splendor. It inspired reprint books, several films, and a stage play. Perhaps its most unusual spin-off was done by restaurateur James Moore, whose eatery was one of McManus's favorites, and who was convinced he was the inspiration for Jiggs's friend, tavern keeper Dinty Moore.
According to McManus, he introduced these same characters in other strips as early as November The humor centers on an immigrant Irishman named Jiggs, a former hod carrier who came into wealth in the United States by winning a million dollars in a sweepstakes. Now nouveau-riche, he still longs to revert to his former working class habits and lifestyle.
