Donovan, Thick-Ear. Thick-Ear Donovan appeared in at least fifty stories in The Wizard, Hotspur, and Rover from 1939 to 1958, possibly beginning with Hotspur #318 (1939).

“Thick-Ear” Donovan is a traditional British schoolmaster who tries to run his classroom in the traditional, proper British manner. Unfortunately, his classroom is in the frontier town of Moose Springs, in North-West, Canada, and so Thick-Ear is forced to deal with not just unruly and ill-mannered students, but also various unruly, ill-mannered, and criminal locals (Thick-Ear is also the Sheriff of Moose Springs).
