This nicely drawn piece presented a character that was easy to understand and identify with. It was quite realistic, and even though there was no dialogue, the story was well told in the characters. It was realistically handled for both contemporary and future audiences, mainly children rather than adults, and has a quality about it that transcends time. Although Harold Lloyd wasn't really popular as Lonesome Luke, there is something about LL that transfers itself into the glasses character (i.e. the loneliness). This is what audiences connect with because there is a loneliness in every human being that can relate to what LL has to say.
