Al Capp's SHMOO Comic Book #5 April 1950

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.

When I was a little kid my cousin had a set of nesting Schmoos that I loved to play with. The first nesting "dolls" I'd seen. Wonder whether they survived.
