ABOUT THIS OLD TIME RADIO SHOW:
All text on OTRCAT.com are ©2014 OTRCAT INC - All Rights Reserved. Reproduction is prohibited.

Strange Dye FactStrange as it Seems featured bizarre stories based cartoons created by John Hix who was a staff artist at the Washington Herald.  The comic strip Strange as it Seems was syndicated in American newspapers between 1928 and 1944. Strange as it Seems was comparable to Ripley's Believe It Or Not. Sponsored by Exlax in the 1930s and Palmolive Shave Cream when the show reappeared in 1947-1948.

Some fantastic stories include:

  • The real reason why Christopher Columbus decided to look for a new continent
  • The "baby" spy in Paris during the French Revolution
  • The story of a man that was saved by a cat.
  • The real truth of Cinderella's glass slipper.
  • In Austria, a small village eats arsenic daily for good health.
  • A man had to literally eat a book about democracy to avoid execution.  Hot tip: he tore it into little pieces and ate it in his soup.

See also: Can You Imagine That, Ripley's One Minute Shorts, Ripley's Believe It Or Not, and Passing Parade.
