LAUGH-IN Comic Strip by Roy Doty

Ger Apeldoorn shares some late 1960s LAUGH-IN Sunday comics by the award winning Roy Doty.

Roy just turned 92 on the tenth of this month. He was among the first cartoonists (maybe he WAS the first) to have his own TV show THE ROY DOTY SHOW on the Dumont Network in 1953. Most people know Roy's work from his syndicated long-running (over 50 years) "Wordless Workshop" cartoon feature which was published in Family Handyman magazine.

He was honored with ten awards from the National Cartoonists Society, and is still at the drawing board.  To quote Roy:

"What could be nicer? I sit and draw funny pictures and people send me money."

Roy is probably one of the only people still with us who ever had a show on the DuMont network (which after various corporate mutations, ended up being the core of the Fox network...)
