Ignatz the Mouse - Pesky rodent inspired by the daily syndicated newspaper comic strip "Krazy Kat" created by George Herriman in 1913 for the Hearst papers.

Ignatz later appeared in a series of silent film cartoons created by Hearst-Vitograph News Pictorial (1916) and then by International Film Services Cartoons (1916-17), Bray Productions (1920-21), Winkler Pictures (1925-27) and Paramount-Famous Lasky (1927-29).

The Krazy Kat franchise continued in a series of Columbia Pictures sound cartoons ("talkies") produced from 1929-40 by Charles Mintz and written by Manny Gould and Ben Harrison.

In 1963, Krazy Kat cartoons were shown as part of Mort Walker's BEETLE BAILEY cartoon series with Paul Frees as the voice of Ignatz Mouse and Penny Philips as the voice of Krazy Kat.

In the cartoons, lovesick Krazy Kat (who lived in Coconino County) pursued Ignatz the mouse who liked to toss bricks at Krazy Kat's head as a sign of his affection.
