For more than 25 years, Ted Key’s cartoon character Hazel graced the pages of The Saturday Evening Post as the Baxter family’s maid. But readers knew who really ruled the roost.
First published in 1943, the single-paneled cartoon series quickly became a hit. Later on, it even inspired a TV show by the same name that ran for five years in the 1960s.
