"The Dingbat Family" quickly became "The Family Upstairs". The crazy story about E. Pluribus Dingbat's relationship with his upstairs neighbours. Those are noisy, smelly, wet and procure many nuisances to M. Dingbat which invariably gets mad. With his tendency of being unlucky, angry and generally maladroit things seldom ends well for him.

But most of all, this strip is the one that gave birth to Krazy and Ignatz. It's under the main story that Krazy and Ignatz will make their first brick throwing comedy, and start building their love story. Have a look at the beginning of august 1910 for the very genesis and as soon as the 13th of august they have their very own panel under the main strip.
