"They'll Do It Every Time" was created by Jimmy Hatlo (d. 1963) and distributed by King Features Syndicate between 1929 and 2008. The strip was drawn from 1963-2008 by Bob Dunn (d. 1989) and Al Scaduto (d. 2007) It was mostly a gag strip, showing the absurdities and realities of everyday life. "The Hatlo Inferno" and "The Hatlo History" were other tandem features of the strip, showing humorous scenes from Hell or history. In this strip, the opening of a boxing gym shows the effects of "Gentleman Jim" Corbett's influence in New York, 1892.
