SATURDAY EVENING POST Scrapbook Part 1


Here are some SATURDAY EVENING POST (and a few COLLIER'S) cartoons from the 1950s.

Last week, out of clear blue, a very nice woman named Kristin Cawood contacted me and asked if I wanted it. She wrote:

A few years ago in a thrift shop I came upon a scrapbook given by an aunt to her nieces in 1958 with several hundred pasted cartoons mostly from the Saturday Evening Post, some from the newspapers and some from Colliers.

I thought it was really cool, but now I am trying to clean up some clutter and just couldn't throw it out. I saw your blog and thought you might appreciate the collection. It was so lovingly assembled. Anyway, would be glad to mail it to you if you have any interest.

Well, I sure do and a big public THANK YOU to Kirstin for sending this on. I'll be posting more of these in future.

Good seeing these old cartoons! Do you recall Joe Zeis doing a cartoon strip called My Dog Spot for the National Enquirer about 20 years ago? I recall Hazel by Ted Key but wondering if the My Dog Spot thing can be clarified.
