From the Dick Buchanan Files: Gag Cartoons 1944 - 1964

Dick Buchanan has unearthed many a gag cartoon in his Cartoon Clip File located somewhere in Greenwich Village. What did he find this day? Here's Dick with the skinny. Thanks and take it away, Dick!


(1944 – 1964)

The Cartoon Clip File recently took a deep dive into a boxful of single panel gag cartoons in search of some desert island cartoons. Actually, instead of a deep dive, we just turned the box upside down and started from there. We found plenty of desert island cartoons alright, but we also found some cartoons we’d long forgotten. Take a look . . .
