Cartoonist George Studdy was popular even before the creation of his iconic Bonzo dog character in the 1920s, as shown by his eponymous Studdy’s War Studies series in newsreels. He quickly went beyond the self-promotional 'lightning sketch' to create truly innovative animated editorial cartoons - such as the WWI-era "Frightfulness vs Fairplay" here.
