Uncle Wiggly Game

American writer Howard R. Garis a successful children’s book author, created the Uncle

Wiggily character.  The editor of the Newark News asked to write some stories, that he

could publish daily, and Garis created a series about an elderly rabbit, Uncle Wiggily

Longears, and his friends. Some of his friends are Baby Bunny, Skiller Scaller, Alligator,

and Nurse Jane Fuzzy Wuzzy.  The first story ran on January 10, 1910 and was a huge

success, which lead to national syndication.  The first Uncle Wiggily game was introduced

by Milton Bradley in 1916.
