The comic strip Shoe is populated by the feathered denizens of Treetops, East Virginia.
The first string characters are P. Martin "Shoe" Shoemaker, Perfesser Cosmo Fishhawk and Roz Specklehen.
Support characters include Cosmo's nephew Skyler, Loon, Irv and Senator Batson D Belfry. Filling out the Shoe gang are fortuneteller Madame Zoo Doo, nonagenarian Biz and Wiz, the computer whiz.
Life and banter revolve around Roz's Roost, a greasy spoon diner. When not feeding, Shoe and Cosmo work at the local newspaper, The Treetops Tattler.
Skyler is Perfesser Cosmo Fishhawks nephew. Hes a smart kid but refuses to let any of his teachers in on this secret. Skyler understands how important he is to any team he plays on. As hes fond of saying. Without me, the bench would never get warm!
