Dick Tracy Meets Smokey Stover
Smokey Stover was a popular comic strip by Bill Holman. Although Smokey Stover was supposed to be a fireman, few if any of his adventures involved going out and fighting fires. He seemed to be more preoccupied with something called "Foo" and was sometimes called a "Foo Fighter", so that might be what he really thought must be fought, though he spent no more time fighting foo in the strip than he did fire.
And actually this Smokey Stover comic strip just has a picture of Dick Tracy hanging on the wall in one panel, but that's close enough.
