The incredible true story of the man behind the machines
Rube started out quiet and shy, but he grew up with a passion for drawing and ended up being one of the most famous cartoonists ever! After earning an engineering degree (to please his father) he decided to pursue his dream of being a cartoonist for a big-time newspaper instead. One of Rube’s most famous characters, Professor Lucifer Gorgonzola Butts, became popular because of the fanciful contraptions he would make to solve simple problems. The more complex and ridiculous the machine Rube drew, the better!
