    Carl Edward Schultze (25 May 1866 - 18 January 1939) was an American newspaper cartoonist best known for his popular Foxy Grandpa comic strip series. He was born and raised in Lexington, on East High Street, and drew the strip under the pseudonym Bunny, his childhood nickname. The Bunny signature was usually accompanied by a drawing of a rabbit.

    Schultze was educated at Lexington and in Cassel, Germany. He sold his first drawing in Chicago for $4 and soon was drawing regularly for the Chicago News during the late 1880s. Foxy Grandpa appeared in the New York Herald in 1900 and moved to the New York American in 1902, running as a regular feature until 1918.

    The Kentucky Room's collection of Schultze sketches are from his art studies in Europe.
