Dear neighbors,

No one selected Alfred E. Neuman of MAD Magazine, or Duark Mark Farquard, or the cartoons of Ernie Kovak's "Strangely, Believe it".

Where is Hoot Gibson and Ken Maynard as cartoon and movie characters?

My Grandmother use to give me cartoon handouts from her church and I grew up thinking Jesus was a cartoon character somewhat like Prince Valiant.

My high school gave out anti-drug cartoons as "Reefer Madness" and provided introduction to Mary Jane or not-so-sweet Martha Lorraine whom I thought were simply cartoon characters.

Oh well, I guess no one remembers Lash LaRue either,


One HAL of a Pal

Dear OX (Kisses and Hugs),

You are dating yourself with cartoons in print rather than on TV. You might realize that the 1960's were ancient times and the 1970's and 1980's are when much of our population were children.

Alfred E. Neuman indeed!
