From the Dick Buchanan Files: Winter and Holiday Gag Cartoons 1943 - 1964

Dick Buchanan has delved into the great gag cartoon clip file that he has in his Greenwich Village apartment. I picture him jumping into a large pile of clipped cartoons like a kid jumping into a heap of fall leaves. Anyway, he had retrieved some cold weather favorite single panel cartoons, and asked ig he could share them with everyone. Of course the answer is yes and THANKS! Now, take it away, Dick!


1943 – 1964

It is time once more to dip into the seemingly bottomless Cartoon Clip File. (By the way, the Clip File is not bottomless, it’s side-less.) We have searched for seasonal gag cartoons drawn by the top cartoonists of the mid-century era and we have found a few to share, so, through sleet, snow, and pestilence, from Thanksgiving and beyond, here are some “blasts from the past” . . . .
