Dick Buchanan's Favorite Gag Cartoons 1946 - 1964

Dick Buchanan sent me an email with some choice cartoons that he likes the best. As ever, I am very happy (and thankful) to share Dick's colossal single panel cartoon collection. Thanks, Dick -- and everyone: sit back and enjoy these great gag cartoons:



1946 - 1964

Every once in awhile some asks me what some of my favorite cartoons are.  It’s usually me that asks--I talk to myself a lot.  But since the subject came up, I thought I we might take the opportunity to choose a few cartoons from the Clip File that are among my favorites.
