Pinkham, Phineas. Phineas Pinkham was created by Joe Archibald (Dizzy Duo, Elmer and Pokey, Alvin Hinkey, Ambrose Hooley, Kid Tarzan, Willie Klump, Windy Knight, Hattie Pringle, Walrus & Wishbone, Jonathan Wise) and appeared in 150 stories in Flying Aces from 1930 to 1943, beginning with “Sneeze That Off” (Flying Aces, Nov. 1930).

Phineas Carbuncle Pinkham is a lieutenant in the Ninth Pursuit Squadron of the A.E.F. during World War One who fights a series of battles in the skies over France and on both sides of the trenches. He is a threat to the Germans, but he seems to be nearly as much of a threat to his commanding officers. He dreams endlessly of foods like strawberry shortcake, and says things like “well, I’m a stuttering anteater.”
