Fred MacMurray, the archetypical father of “My Three Sons” fame, was the initial model for C.C. Beck’s classic superhero creation – Captain Marvel (Shazam for you commoners). MacMurray was born in Kankakee, Illinois. Also from Kankakee? Harold Gray, the creator of “Little Orphan Annie”. Two classic cartoon characters spawned from a town of a few thousand in northern Illinois. Cool.
