The modern newspaper strip was born in the heat of rivalry between giants of the American press. The Yellow Kid , set in a large single scene, not a narrative strip, was the first continuous comic character in the United States. Outcault established earthy, strictly urban farce as the keynote of the early American strip, which thereafter grew in sophistication and sentimentality. The Yellow Kid also standardized the speech balloon, which had largely fallen into disuse since the 17th century and its occasional appearance in the English caricatural strip about In Rudolph Dirks , at the instigation of Hearst, who as a child had enjoyed the work of Busch, worked up a strip based on Max and Moritz , called the Katzenjammer Kids , which proved an instant success.
