Biography: Schultze was an American newspaper cartoonist best known for his popular Foxy Grandpa comic strip series. He drew the strip under the pseudonym Bunny, his childhood nickname. The Bunny signature was usually accompanied by a drawing of a rabbit.

His Foxy Grandpa comic strip was first published in January 1900 in the New York Herald, moving to the New York American in 1902. By 1913, Schultze was president of the Bunny Amusement Corporation of New York. The strip disappeared as a regular feature in 1918.

Personal problems and debts plagued Schultze through the 1920s. He resurfaced in 1935, illustrating school books, including the popular Julia and the Bear. During the 1930s, he was a Works Progress Administration worker. He died of a heart attack in 1939.
