SATURDAY EVENING POST Scrapbook Part 10


Above: a SATURDAY EVENING POST classic multi-panel wordless gag cartoon by Syverson.

Here is a look back at some 1950s SATURDAY EVENING POST gag cartoons. Today: dogs and other animals.



It's the big eyes on the onlookers that sell this wordless Jerry Marcus cartoon.



Looks like cartoonist Roy Fox is channeling Marge's LITTLE LULU.


I love this Bill Yates cartoon for the dog's expression.



Ditto Vahan Shirvanian's expression on that bear's puss.





There are a good number of Mickey Mouse gags in general. The MICKEY MOUSE CLUB must have been making an impact.













Jack Chisum's expression on the outraged cat holding the thermometer makes this a bullseye.




My thanks to Kristin Cawood for giving me this large scrapbook of 1950s gag cartoons to share! Thanks, Kristin!

Great collection Mike! Mickey and the Penguin got me pretty good... It would be interesting to see a collection of Mickey Mouse ones that the other cartoonist had done, especially during that time period. Do you know, since 'animation' had become so accessible at that time, the 50's, if those new television cartoons were welcomed with open arms by the layman, magazine, panel etc. cartoonist or was it much like the advent of the use of computers is now, where there seems to be a little division about the new medium, or newer anyways? Love your blog always a treat!..

These are so much fun. I love the thoroughly frustrated characters and the unseen back-stories. The guy yelling "Now try it!" at his horse makes me laugh. Hard. Maybe it's because I have a three year old and at least once a day I feel just like this guy.
