Yellow Kid

Richard Felton Outcault (1863-1928) created Hogan’s Alley, which is considered the first commercially successful newspaper comic strip. It featured Mickey Dugan, better known as the Yellow Kid, and Outcault drew this character for the New York World from February 17, 1895 to October 4, 1896.
