Captain Tootsie Month, Day 28: Oh, it's a Johnny Holiday with Tootsie...

"Captain Tootsie and His Friends See Johnny Holiday," from Whip Wilson #9 (April 1950), by Bill Schreiber

Wait a minute...they all met William Bendix when he was making the Babe Ruth movie! What is the mysterious connection between William Bendix and the Tootsie Company? Is Bendix in for forty large to Captain Tootsie, thus ensuring his cooperation when it comes time to make these comic ads? Did the Tootsie Company kill William Bendix as a warning to other actors?!? (Answer: no.)
