The Magic Whistle blog scans in the first half of the SHMOO #5 comic book, dated April 1950, and (as the credits show) drawn and written by Mr. Al Capp's staff.
The Shmoos were a big deal -- a big merchandising spin-off -- from the LI'L ABNER comic strip. I am thinking that the Shmoo craze is forgotten now, never to reemerge.
