Toonerville Trolley -- Yuh Didn't Have No Shovel -- February 6, 2022

Philadelphia Evening Public Ledger, 16-June-1922

I love Fontaine Fox's The Toonerville Trolley That Meets All the Trains. Here the Skipper won't pick up able-bodied males unless they have a shovel to help clear snow from the tracks.

Transit systems that were rickety, either physically or financially, were often referred to as "Toonerville Trolleys."
