Johnny Hodges' Nicknames

Johnny Hodges' Nicknames

The nickname of 'Jeep" was bestowed upon Hodges by Otto Hardwick after a character in the "Popeye" strip cartoon. He also named Billy Strayhorn "Swee'Pea" from the same source.

Below is the original strip which introduced Jeep to readers. See any resemblance?
