From the Dick Buchanan Files: Winter and Holiday Gag Cartoons 1939 - 1955

It's getting to be a winter wonderland out there and White Christmas ain't gonna be just a song for us this year. This is a good time to ask Dick Buchanan to share his gag cartoons with us from the golden age of magazine cartooning. Well, any time is a good time, really. Now, a couple of these are a bit small, but you know what to do: right-click and open 'em in a new tab to enlarge them.

Thanks and take it away, Dick!
