TRIVIA

'Mills Brownie' featured the Palmer Cox 'Brownies'. They were the best known cartoon characters of the day.

A 'Brownie' is a legendary kind of elf popular in folklore around Scotland and England (especially the north). He is the British counterpart of the Scandinavian 'Tomte', the Russian 'Domovoi' or the German 'Heinzelmannchen'. Customarily they are said to inhabit houses and aid in tasks around the house. However, brownies do not like to be seen and will only work at night, perhaps in exchange for small gifts or food. They usually abandon the house if their gifts are called payments, or if they are offered gifts of clothes.
