Robert Franklin "Bo" Brown (July 2, 1906 – August 23, 1996) was an American cartoonist. His work appeared in such places as The Saturday Evening Post, The New Yorker, and some six hundred other publications. He also produced the syndicated comic strip Such Is Life in 1936.
He was a graduate of the University of Pennsylvania, class of 1928. Bo Brown was a law student at Penn when he sold two cartoons to the Saturday Evening Post, earning more money than fledgling lawyers could expect in 1930. So he took a leave of absence from Penn Law and proceeded, with the aid of his wife, Marge, to sell more than 35,000 cartoons to national, regional and local publications over the next 65 years. Brown's cartoons were reprinted in Europe, Asia, and South America and he also created illustrations that appeared in about 20 books.
