RARA-AVIS: Uncle Tubby

I posted a list of pulp characters couple weeks ago and asked the authors. There was a hero called Uncle Tubby. I found out yesterday that he was a creation by Ray Cummings, who wrote many science fiction and spicy mystery stories for the pulps from the thirties to the fifties. Cummings wrote to my knowledge some hardboiled stuff, but these Uncle Tubby stories surely aren't HB - they are more or less classical
(or cozy?) oriented stuff and Tubby is a deductive investigator in the manner of Chesterton's Father Brown. Not much to be considered by rara-avians. Or anybody else, if you ask me.
