From the Dick Buchanan Files: Show Business Gag Cartoons 1945 - 1962

Here it is Friday and time to think about the weekend and what movies and shows there are to see. Entertainment is where it's at, gang! And here's Dick Buchanan with a selection of vintage show business cartoons for your amusement. Happy weekend and thanks, Dick, for these great scans of great magazine panels.



(1945 – 1962)

Make no mistake, there’s no business like show business. And show business has always been a popular topic of gag cartoonists. In fact, “There’s no business like shows business” is one of the most used captions. With that in mind, direct from Cartoon Clip File, located somewhere scenic Greenwich Village, is a selection of show business cartoons. “There’s no cartoons like show business cartoons!”
