1936 The Three Stooges - Ants In The Pantry S3E1
Nickname for a female. "Look here toots..." Is what they use to say to belittle the ladies. Based on the 1850s term, "tootsie" and "tootsy wootsy". The irony is there are more men who employ that moniker than woman!

In the Sleepy Hollow story, the headless killer is a Hessian mercenary soldier. In the 18th century the British army contracted Hessians for military services. Their mission was to combat in many battles including the American Revolutionary War (1775–1783). The Hessian name is based off the German state (stadt), Hesse-Kassel.
