In August 1919, at the age of nine, Capp was run down by a trolley car and had to have his left leg amputated, well above the knee. [2] According to his father Otto's unpublished autobiography, young Capp was not prepared for the amputation beforehand; having been in a coma for days, he suddenly awoke to discover that his leg was removed. [3] He was eventually given a prosthetic leg, but only learned to use it by adopting a slow way of walking which became increasingly painful as he grew older. [4] The childhood tragedy of losing a leg likely helped shape Capp's cynical worldview, which was darker and more sardonic than that of the average newspaper cartoonist. [5] "I was indignant as hell about that leg," he would reveal in a November 1950 interview in Time magazine.
