From the Dick Buchanan Files: Magazine Gag Cartoons 1945 - 1966


It's time to catch up with Dick Buchanan. He's the man who has zillions of gag cartoons in his Cartoon Clip File located somewhere in beautiful Greenwich Village. Dick has, through these past years, been so kind to share his collection with us here. So, as the cold arrives and the days get shorter, here is Dick to bring a little cartoony warmth to our lives. Thanks and take it away, Dick!


(1945- 1966)

Your friendly crackpot cartoon curator spent the summer rummaging through the countless magazines which we have been amassed over decades and decided to take took a second look to see if something was overlooked. By golly, it turns out quite a few gag cartoons slipped through the cracks. No surprise as there are plenty of cracks around here. Take a look. . .
