This Syroco wood figure of JIGGS is marked 1944 K.F.S. for King Features Syndicate. They were the distributors of the long-running comic strip 'Bringing Up Father'. It ran for 87 years...1913 to 2000. The comic humor centered on an immigrant Irishman named Jiggs, who came into wealth in the United States by winning a million dollars in a sweepstakes. In spite of being suddenly rich, Jiggs was still a working-class guy at heart who longed to revert to his former habits and lifestyle. His constant attempts to sneak out with his old gang of boisterous, rough-edged pals, eat corned beef and cabbage and hang out at the local tavern were often thwarted by his formidable, social-climbing (and rolling-pin wielding) wife, Maggie.

This figure of Jiggs was one of 24 comic characters offered by Pillsbury Mills, Inc. as premiums in 1944. Each figure cost 25¢ and a Pillsbury Enriched Farina box top.

Jiggs measures 4 1/2 inches high. He's about 2 1/2 inches across at the elbows. Jiggs is in excellent vintage condition with no notable wear, cracks, chips or flaws. He's a fine old comic collectible and won't eat any of your corned beef and cabbage.
