Monday Cartoon day.
Most of the 1940's-50' cartoonists tried their hand at a newspaper strip at some point. Hoff was one of the Saturday Evening Post/Collier's/etc regulars, who succeeded the first. His strip Tuffy ran from 1945 to 1950 at least. Alas, it did not catch the spirit of the times and disappeared without a trace, comic book, cartoon series or book collection.
